The Kalash Tribe, Hindukush Mountains, Pakistan. They are the direct descendants of Alexander The Great's Army. They are Pagan. There are approximately 3000 remaining and have no written language. Once you leave the tribe, you cannot return to live with them. The mountains are difficult to reach as it is weather dependent (3 months per year is suitable).
Two Kalash women pose on their veranda in Rumboor Valley, one of the three Kalash valleys, North Pakistan. The Kalasha are a conspicuously non-Muslim tribe, in a sea of Muslims streching from Turkey to Kashmir. Today, there are 3,000 Kalasha left and there 3 valleys are even outnumbered by Muslims. | Photo.net
