Most of us will probably never see everything that the region has to offer us, but it’s worth a shot! Here one of them Chitral Gol National park and incredible Birmoghlasht, to see around and watch the mountains panorama at sunrise and sunsetdefinitely worth adding to your bucket list of best vacation spots, ecological tourism-climbing mountains, exploring biodiversity and adventure.
If you are afflicted with a case of wanderlust, you know that seeing the most beautiful places to visit can be a profoundly moving and valuable experience.
There’s nothing like seeing Tarich Mir- the highest mountain peak of Hindukush, and the huge mountain hub of Hindu Raj, lit with gold as the sun rises over its peaks from the grassy Tarich Mir. Watch the Hindu Raj Mountain and Tarich Mir awash with sunset hues from a terrace in Birmoghlasht (Summer Palace)
Trekking through the high land of Birmoghlasht, which was established in 1910 by the then Mehtar Shurja Ul Mulk. During the existence of the Chitral state, the Mehtar and his family would move to the fort in the summer to enjoy the cooler temperatures and also to hold court. The fort is situated in close proximity to core areas of the Chitral Gol National Park which is home to snow leopards, markhors, ibexes, black bears, red foxes, otters, golden eagles, cranes, falcons, snow partridge and hundreds of other species of wildlife The Birmoghlasht Summer Fort is a dilapidated fort of the former ruler is perched on top of a hill at an elevation of about 9,000 feet. It is located in what is now a core area of the Chitral Gol National Park.
The way leading to the park is quite narrow and dangerous, highly risky during the rainy days. It is located 1450 metres and about 5000 metres above sea level. It has an area of 7750 hectares.
This park includes three valleys. Several glaciers also lie in the park through which several springs make their way and ultimately form a stream which runs 18 kilometres. The cold water of this stream flows towards the east, into the River Chitral. The park is rich in trees particularly cedar trees. The park also serves to provide shelter to a vast bio-diversity, especially markhors, an endangered wild goat species. The subspecies, which are found in the park, include the Astor markhor, the largest population in the world.
