Broad, rolling alpine meadows and sparkling streams offer open strolling through the pass called the king’s polo ground, or Shah Jinali An.

A scenic and moderately easy Shah Jinali trek is blended with the captivating Thui Valley, which is situated in the Hindu Raj range between Chitral and Gilgit regions.

Starting the trek from the legendary Turikho valley of upper Chitral and following easy trails through green pastures, lovely alpine meadows and summer settlements, the only difficult portion to negotiate are the crossing of Hoghost Bar Glacier and the 4500m Thui pass, which are the climax of this trek from where we will come down to Yasin valley for onward drive to Gilgit.
The trek is supplemented with a visit to the Kalash valley for an exciting primitive cultural touch.
