Nestled in remote locations of Chitral District in the North West Frontier Province, the customs and lifestyle of the people of the Kalash Valley is like none other in the country. They are said to be the descendents of Alexander the Great. Some historians hold that they hail from Nuristan of Afghanistan.

Their language has an Indo-European genesis with several dialects. Folklore, songs and epics abound as part of their oral tradition. They have quaint festivals and funeral rites, all of which makes a visit to their habitation an interesting experience.
