The Kalash valley is home to the Kalasha, non-Muslims who claim to be descendent of ancient Greek colonists. The story goes that Alexander the Great was very surprised to find Greeks around here when he came over the Hindukush in 327 BC. Besides its intriguing population, the Kalash valley is also very green and beautiful. Unfortunately, with the Afghan border within 20 km, hiking possibilities are limited for security reasons.
