Kalash Valley Road is a thrilling (scary) off road experience in Pakistan
Kalash Valley Road is the name of a very defiant road located in Chitral district, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa of Pakistan. It’s one of the most challenging roads of the country.
The bumpy road is totally unpaved and runs along the Kalash River. It has dangerous narrow parts and severe drop offs. Attempting it in anything but a high-clearance, preferably 4-wheel drive vehicle is a recipe for disaster. The road is 17.6 km (10.93 miles) long, running east-west from Ayun on the N45 road, south of the town of Chitral, to Grum. The last section of the road is called Rumbur Valley Road.
The road is pretty steep, with an elevation gain of 400m, ending up at 1.923m above the sea level. Drive with care as this is a mountain road with hairpin curves and dangerous drop offs. This route remains closed during the winters so it is highly non-recommended.
