To discover the region of Chitral and Hunza by bike has its own charm. We start our trip from Islamabad to Peshawar through the beautiful Swat valley up to Dir by jeep. From here one can use the own horse power. The 3118 m high Lowari Pass and the 3720 m high Shandur Pass are highlights for bikers. The Chitral valley at an elevation of 1127 m, which is between the two passes has an exotic touch. The major attractions are the Kalash valleys. A population of 3000 strong Kafir Kalash people live in the valleys of Birir, Bumburet and Rambur. The Kalash are gay people, who love music and dancing particularly on occasions of their religious festivals. After the strenuous climb to Shandur pass one can relax on the magnificent plateau. We continue our bike ride to the dark blue Punder Lake. There we should try to catch our own trout fish for dinner. The following days mean “easy biking” towards Hunza.
