The tribe Kalash residing in the remote valleys of Hindu Kush in Northern Pakistan claims to be descended from the Generals of Alexander -The Great.

The people of Kalash Tribe differ from the surrounding poulations in their looks & religion.The Kalash tribe does not follow Islam they believe in Animism & Shamanism also they believe in sacrifice.The Kalash are found in three valleys of Hindu Kush namely Rumbur , Birir & Bumboret. However 6000 Kalsh residing in Bumboret Valley have embraced Islam due to growing pressure. Joshi is a spring festival which is celebrated by kalash.
