Broghil Valley

In K-P's Chitral district, in an isolated mountainous region, is where you'll find the Broghil Valley. It is a little valley that is about 250 kilometres from Chitral. In its northeastern and northwestern portions, the valley borders Gilgit-Baltistan and Afghanistan's Wakhan Corridor, respectively.

The Karomber Pass, which separates the Broghil Valley from the Ishkoman Valley, marks the northernmost point of the valley. At the Karomber pass is where you'll also find the well-known Karomber Lake.

It is covered in the stunning Chiantar Glacier. In addition, Karomber Lake is home to a diverse range of aquatic species.

The valley is located at an altitude of 3,280 feet, thus the climate there is rather severe, particularly during the winter. Amazing rivers, lakes, marshes, glaciers, mountains, meadows, and wildlife may be found in the Broghil Valley.

Even though the valley is so stunning, it is frequently considered to as a piece of heaven on Earth, life in Broghil is everything from simple. The area gets extremely harsh winter weather, resulting in annual snowfall of 5 to 6 feet. In this valley the big problem of transmission in winter.

Residents of the valley travel to Chitral before winter arrives to sell their yaks, which are their only source of income, in order to buy household goods for the five months they will be stuck in the valley.

In contrast to the past, when the valley used to be exceedingly remote and had no access to even the necessities of life, Amin Jan Tajik, the Nazim of Broghil Valley, noted that there has been some change over the years. Currently, a few people have begun opening stores in the valley that stock a variety of things to survive the duration of the winter.
"Residents take their yaks both to Chitral and Ishkoman area of Gilgit-Baltistan to sell them, where a large number of buyers show up," Tajik said. Yak meat is quite well-known in Chitral and costs Rs380 per kilogram.



According to Tajik, yak meat is appreciated in the area because, in contrast to other domesticated animals that are kept in a corral, yaks are allowed to forage in the wild throughout the winter, making their meat appetizing and delectable.
