ISLAMABAD: Lok Virsa has undertaken documentary on life, culture and folklore of Wakhi people living in the Pamir mountains on Pakistan, Afghanistan, Tajikstan and China borders.

A three-member team of National Institute of Folk and Traditional Heritage comprising a video producer, craft collector and cameraman, undertook a field research to Chitral and upper border areas for documentation of Boroghil valley.

The Boroghil valley is nearly inaccessible in the extreme northern border of Pakistan. It is located in the Pamir mountain ranges, with Wakhan Corridor in the west and Gojal in upper Hunza on the east China to the east. The Wakhan corridor is sparsely populated with a population estimated around 11,000.
