 Rumber valley : Jewel in the palace

 Rumber valley

Rumber valley is the third valley of Kalasha valley situated Chitral , Khyber Pakhtunkhwa PakistanRumbur valley is one of the three kalasha valleys and my personal favourite too . Reason being it has less tourist and a very peaceful place in the very heart of Hindukush .

From Chitral you can reach here in about 2 hours but please keep it in mind that road is very bumpy .A beautiful valley, lovely and hospitable people, only recommended to foreign tourists not for Pakistani tourists, due to lack of good hotels and restaurants.

 The guest houses are run by Kalash people and they are basic, but a very peaceful valley, far from the hustle and bustle of the worlds, life seems stopped here at some point.
