Gilgit, NW Pakistan 32C cloudy
We have had two days in Kalash Valley visiting the indigenous people of Chitral, whom their ancestors migrated to Chitral from Afghanistan in the 2nd century BC.
On our way to our acclimatization trekk, we watched a polo game in the Pakistani elite series. (The funny thing: we 4 white people were nearly more of an attraction then the national heroes, the polo players)
Our trekk sent over a 4600m mountain pass close to the Afghan boarder and the Wahan Pass. We had all kind of weather; sun, heat, rain, thunderstorm, snow... And we met many interesting people.
Now we are two days in Gilgit preparing for our climb; registration, shopping food, gas, maps...
More updates before we leave Gilgit.
Enjoy your summer!
