Including Kalash Valley, Tripkar brings you three more magnificent valleys situated near Kalash:
20 kilometers away from the village of Ayun Valley is Bumburet, the largest valley of Kalash. The fact that the valley consists of shady meadows, sparkling streams, apricot and walnut trees, groves of mulberry and green fields makes Bumburet the most beautiful valley in Kalash. Adjoining the valley is Nuristani village located near the government rest house from where the route leading to Shawal pass begins. So do not miss this place as you plan your journey to Chitral.
To the north of Bumburet is the valley where relatively fewer tourists visit named as Rumbur. Rumbur is quite narrower than Bumburet and does not have the shady meadows but still has been termed as ‘rugged and majestic’ due to higher mountain ridges and wild river. The environment is extremely peaceful and you will enjoy spending a day or two at this breathtaking valley.
Birir is beautiful in a unique way. With very few shady meadows and pastures that lies on the lowest altitude than the other two valleys. The climate is hot but the amazing part is that Birir grows the best grapes you can ever taste. In reality, Birir valley is wider than Rumbur. It is the smallest valley of all at an altitude of approximately 5476 feet. Birir is located at the Southern-most end of Chitral and can be accessed via a road through Ayan Valley. However, most tourists prefer trekking to the valley instead of using jeep.
So on your visit to Kalash valley, it would be an amazing experience if you witness the beauty of all three valleys.
