The locals of Kaghan valley are predominantly Gujars, who are peaceful people. They know that their survival depends exclusively upon a good tourist season...as this valley is open for 3-4 months only. They are also nomads when in the summer time they take their herds from the lower valley to the higher alpine region, and stay their for months. Before the onset of winter, they make their journey south to sell the now expanded herd.
Gujars are friendlier and open minded, and will go out of their way to make your stay a pleasant one.
