Kalash Valley is a historical location inhabited by an olden tribe. It is situated in the south of the Chitral district, about 20 kilometers from Chitral.

Stunning Kalash, is sited in the glorious mountains of the Hindukush, and shapes the northwest boundaries between Pakistan and Afghanistan. Some of the world’s most extravagant mountains enclose Kalash to include; Tirich Mir, at an elevation of 25289 feet,with glacier treks to walk around, Noshaq, 24580 feet, Istoro Nal, 24288 feet and Saragrar 24075 feet. The lowest pass to this region is Lowari Top, which is more than 10,000 feet in attitude.
