Afghans, Pakistanis attend together Baba Ghundi festival in Hunza

The three-day 12th International Baba Ghundi festival was held in Upper Hunza’s Chipursan valley, close to Pak-Afghan border on July 22-24.

The festival was held every year at the shrine of Sufi  saint Baba Ghundi to pay homage for his services to spread Islam in the region.

As the festival is held near Afghanistan’s Wakhan region, it brings together the Wakhi speaking people from the two countries.

Sufi night, Buzkashi competitions, polo matches, traditional sword dance, Yak Safari and race, traditional food and folk Wakhi music were part of the festival.
