Detail

Introduction
One of the most important and well-celebrated festivals in Shimshal, a remote village in upper Hunza is the Kuch Festival when the people of Shimshal bring their livestock to high Pamir pastures where they live for five months grazing them. During this time they collect yeast, cheese, and butter for their families to be used in the harsh winter season. The joy and happiness of being reunited with the rest of the family members are celebrated when shepherds return with their flock from high Pamir pastures. With thousands of sheep, yaks, and goats, the welcome back is a spectacular experience. Following their hundreds of years old tradition of goat sacrifice at the Shimshal Bridge is a way to express their gratitude to God for the safe return of their family and herds from the high pastures. The event takes place between the 15th and 18th of October every year in Shimshal Valley.
