Kalash: Beautiful People in a Beautiful Valley | Pakistan Travel Vlog


In this video, we are exploring Rumbur Village in Kalash Valley where everyone is really busy getting ready for the highly anticipated Kalash Festival In case you missed the first part of our
adventure, we have travelled from London to Pakistan to see for ourselves whether Pakistan is as dangerous as the media portrays it to be In this series, we drove more than 400 kilometres going through some rough and bumpy roads some some of the craziest roads we have ever been on our journey took us to some of the most
beautiful places in Pakistan Where we were surrounded by its outstanding mountains and natural beauty we were blown away by the kindness and
the hospitality of the Pakistani people from Kids to adults And I don’t think I need to emphasise how much we enjoyed eating Pakistani food Now, we are here in Rumbur. We are staying at a guesthouse run by a local family First things first. Let’s begin our day with a local breakfast: organic eggs and some homemade bread. We need to eat like the locals, which means no forks or spoons Staying in this guesthouse gives us the opportunity to get familiar with the Kalash culture and experience how they get ready for the festival We are also not the only tourists, there are people here who travelled to Pakistan from different parts of the world Just making a spoon out of walnut wood in Kalash Valley beautiful wood beautiful place what do you want to do with that?
Do you want to carry it around? yeah I’m actually lacking a spoon to stir in my pot At the moment I’m just doing a small spoon so a big one would be nice How did you find about Kalash I think just researching Pakistan online and then Kalash just popped up and then just like you know glowed with fluorescent light You have been here more than us, what do you think about Kalash incredible absolutely incredible the
people are just so welcoming their culture is very rich and all the younger generation and the older generation is so passionate about their culture which is pretty inspiring By walking through the village, we realised the vital role this river plays in the community the river is a source of drinking water and it is used to wash clothes and to power water means to make flour This clear water is also a source of food for the Kalash people There are various farms and fruit trees alongside the river You know if you don’t want to get a black hand You can put a knife on the walnut and open it with the knife You see, you put it here all bridges in this part of the world
are handmade you need some good balancing skills to cross some of them you know we all love this tree, yes, This tree makes your wishes come true What did you wish? Shadow the bridge is shaking a lot in this part of the valley which has no
easy access for disabled people we are going to meet an inspiring woodcarver
who contracted polio at a young age This is Rehmat Wali, due to his situation he could not go to school and he rarely leaves his house, but this
didn’t prevent him from working hard and experiencing his creativity He makes different things for example, he’s making a man in their tradition It is a memory of a man but it is not for somebody else, it is part of the culture not sketching or not on the paper or neither he draws some lines on the wood He has the design in his head which he
cuts according to that design He is making this one, which is taking up to ten to fifteen days but the one he has made took him almost one month this is the dancing Hall where they have
different ceremonies like seasonal ceremonies, birth celebrations or dead anniversary they celebrate here by dancing by drumming or by playing music Now this is old enough so they have shifted towards up to the hill At the top of this hill is where everyone gathers every night before the festival and dance This ceremony means a lot to the Kalash people, it’s a spiritual event and also a time to worship their gods to worship their gods In the next video, we will walk towards the Afghan border and explore a very remote village in Pakistan let’s be honest we are kind of lost and
we can’t find our track

    Many thanks for this awesome vlog. The disabled gentleman is a inspiration and his artwork shows fabulous. What can I say? Pakistan-Iran Zindabad. You may not know this little piece of history but the region coterminous to Pakistan [Indus Valley] was once part of the Persian Acheamenid Empire. Satrapies like Gandhara [modern day Khyber Pakhtunkwa], Hendosh [modern day Sindh, Gedrosia [modern day Balochistan] are recorded on the Biston inscriptions. And when Persian empire fell to Greeks we were next. The region you are in was one point of ingress for the Greek armies who then marched to Taxila near modern day Islamabad.

    I like Kalash, Pathan, and Baloch Pakistanis better than the Urdu speakers (dominant Pakistanis). Urdu speaking Pakistanis are rude, racist, and aggressive.
