Entering the different lush green valleys is like a dream. Like little green dots of an oasis inbetween the arid rock deserts of the Karakoram, Himalaya and Hindukush mountain ranges. Apricot, cherry and walnut trees welcome you from far away.
Nearly each of these valleys once were independent kingdoms - even today they speak their own languages, sometimes the languages differ within viewing range from one side to the other of one and the same valley.
