The spring festival (Joshi) starts from 13th of May,there will be final in Rumbur on 15th of May & the grand final will be in Bomburet valley on 16th of May.

Public transport is available from Chitral to Bomburet & Rumbor valleys which takes about 2 hrs to each valley.

A hired jeep will cost about 5000/6000 PKR per day.

Hi,

It's some 50 Km from Chitral airport to Grome village of Rumbur, hiring a jeep would be better, the road is very bad these days.

The dates of Joshi are from 14th to 17th of May, 15th May last day in Rumbur, 16th May Bamburet and 17th May in Birir valley.

All most every 2nd shop in Hunza (Karimabad) bazaar & every hotel rents jeep or can arrange it for you,no need to go to any specific shop,hotel or to a person.

As i mentioned in the other post that there is no over night bus from Gilgit to Chitral,the bus for Chitral leave from Gilgit not from Hunza.

Hi,

The buses leave early in the morning from Gilgit to Mastuj, 12, 13 hrs across Shandur pass.

There are rent a car offices in Karimabad, you could find a jeep or car from there.

After staying overnight in Mastuj, you could take a car/van to Chitral, 4 hrs drive.

Good luck..

Greetings from Chitral,

In Kalash valleys you could pitch your own tent or hire a tent from 500 to 800 Pkrs.

Hotels in Kalash valleys start from 1500 Pkrs, during festival days difficult to find some space.
