Chitral Gol Wild Life
|Duration :||14 days trip, walking days 7/8|
|Max Height Gained :||3730m|

A classic traverse of Chitral Gol National Park starting from the Kalash valleys where Alexander’s lost tribe still live in their traditional ways, the trek rewards you with excellent views of Tirich Mir 7708m besides other peaks and the likelihood of spotting the endangered markhor wild goat. This is a short remote trek on a seldom used route on faint rugged trails used by shepherds and hunters. You cross two passes the Chimarsan Doni pass 3730m and Gokhshal pass 3720m in the Chitral Gol wild life sanctuary. Chitral Gol sanctuary was established by H.H Sir Shuja ul Mulk as his private game reserve in 1910.The present owner being the last ruler Prince Saif ul Mulk. The area covers 7,745 hectares with old cedars, pine oak, juniper and birch forests with a good herd of about 400/500 Markhor’s with snow leopard, wolf, marmot and weasel in it. The park is also rich in bird life such as Monal pheasant, Falcon, Hawk, Eagle, Lammergeyer, snow cock, chukar and many other species. On many occasions, I have viewed Eagles hunting the snow cock in the valley.
