From Chitral different trekking itineraries could be followed which’re at some hours distance from the main town but here I’d let you know about a famous and one of the most exciting itineraries in Chitral which starts from one of the Kalash valleys and comes to an end in the last valley, furthermore, it’s abundant in lush green pine forests, white waters, and there’re some pints where from one can easily take the photographs of some of the famous peaks in Hindukush (Terichmir 7778 m).

Day 1: Excursion to Birir (3rd Kalash valley), 2 hrs drive from Chitral town, on a bumpy road, overnight stay at guest house,

Day2: Trek to Bamborate (2nd Kalash valley), over Gumbak Pass (3010 m), 6 to 8 hrs walk,

Day3: Trek to Achulgah valley, 5 to 7 hrs, over Donson Pass (2900 m), overnight camping,

Day3: Trek to Romboor Valley (3rd Kalash Valley), over Kundayak Pass ( 2080 m), 6 to 8 hrs, overnight sat at guest house,

Day 4: Drive back to Chitral.

The itinerary’s cheap, neither you need porters nor a lot of stuff for cooking but a guide’s highly recommended because the trails’re dodgy inside the forests and it’s also a restricted zone due to its close location to Nooristan ( Province of Afghanisatan).

Enjoy the marvels of Pakistan,

Address: The three isolated mountain valleys: Mumuret, Rukmu, and Biriu
Directions: Wagons for the Kalash valley run daily from the Chitral town center near Khyber Bank.
