    Default A Journey to the World of Colors & the Land of Rocks

    We are blessed with a beautiful country and I intend to see it as much as possible in this life time. We made a journey to a place which can be truly called the world of colors. An ancient civilization, surviving for thousands of years but on the brink of extinction. The Kelasha Civilization. The main objective was to attend the Chilam Josht festival, a festival by Kelasha people to celebrate the arrival of spring. The Kelasha people are amazing souls on this earth. They don't live their lives they enjoy it. Though it is difficult to imagine once one realize the hardships they face yet they keep on smiling, dancing and singing. The details of tour are:
    <o:p></o:p>

    Day 1 Lahore - Gujranwal - Rawalpindi - Mardan - Dir - Lowari top - Ayoun - Kelash<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    Day 2 - Kelasha valley<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    Day 3 - Chilam Josht festival and then to Chitral<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>

    Day 4 - Chitral to Mastoj<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>

    When we reached Dir we checked with relevant persons and they told us that Lowari tunnel is closed for routine works and you have to go over the top. Well that was not the plan. We decided to move on further and when reached the check point FC told us that tunnel is definitely closed and you can't go though we have prior arrangements for approval etc .... long story.

    So then we decided to go over the top. Tunnel is not yet fully operational the main shaft is done, but road, lighting, sewerage and ventilation ducts are not yet built or operational. Once completed Chitral will be accessable in all seasons and overall journey will be atleast 3 hours shorter.

    Diesel prices are killing ... cost ever more to have a trip. When I started visiting northern areas diesel was Rs. 6 a litre. That does not mean I am too old I started early.
