The Chitral region of the Hindu Kush in Pakistan is one of the most isolated areas of the western end of the Himalayas, and is surrounded by high mountain passes. It is also one of extreme beauty. The remote human communities, including the Kalasha people, live in narrow valleys dominated by mountain rivers and natural hazards, and prehistoric sites abound . Chitral's biodiversity is also important, and many of the passes are migration routes for animals between central Asia and the subcontinent.
The Kalasha have lived in this unique area for many centuries, and some think they are descended from parts of Alexander the Greatís army more than 2000 years ago. The Meadows will talk briefly about the current life-style of the Kalasha in terms of their sustainable use of limited natural resources and periodic natural hazards, and will also anwer questions. We hope that this will be followed by an outstanding, Swiss-made documentary film on the Kalasha.
