Chitral: The people of Kalash valley celebrated the famous annual harvesting festival Uchal with singing, dancing and paying homage to the nature for blessing them with barley and wheat harvest season. Special foods, cheese, buttermilk and corn bread, were prepared for the event. Women in traditional dresses preformed dances.
This year, the blockade of Kalash road has hampered the local people to visit Chitral town for shopping activity which is considered an important part of the festivity.
