Enjoying the festival
Joshi /Chilimjusht The spring festival is celebrated in the mid- May and lasts for four days. It begins at Rumbur and then proceeds to the other two valleys of Bumboret and Birir. The people of Kalash pray for the safeguards of their domestic animals and shepherds before they go to the fields. For this purpose, they spray milk on their gods, considering it as a good omen for their families.
