The Valley is surrounded by Tirchmir mountain ranges. Due to these mountain ranges, the valley has remained isolated from the outer world for a long time. This is one reason why their culture and rituals are still in their purest form.Kalash Festivals and culture are unique and fascinating.Kalashi people celebrate three festivals every year. Chilam Joshi, Uchal, and Chomos. Chilam Joshi being the most famous festival kicks off in the second week of May which is the spring festival. Uchal Festival happens in the Autumn season and Chomos festival happens in the mid winters.The three Valleys (Bumburate, Rambur, Birir) and their indigenous people are one of the reasons most of the foreigners come to Pakistan lately.
