Swat and Mastuj Chitral Rivers Kayaking Expedition
Sawat, Chitral KPK
The Swat River is a perennial river in the northern region of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa Province, Pakistan. The river commences in Swat Kohistan region of Kalam with the confluence of two main tributaries Ushu and Gabral and runs downstream in a narrow gorge up to Baghdheri.
The Chitral River or the Kama River is about 480 km long, located in northern Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan, and eastern Afghanistan. The river system is fed by melting glaciers and snow of the Hindu Kush mountains. It is also part of the Indus watershed basin.
The river rises in the far north glaciated Hindu Kush mountains of Chitral, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan. Downstream as far as Mastuj it is known as the Mastuj River from there to its confluence with the Lotkoh River just north of the important regional centre of Chitral. It is then called the Chitral River, before flowing south into the upper Kunar Valley of Afghanistan. At the confluence in Asadabad, historically Chaga Sarai, it meets with Pech River and finally empties into the Kabul River just to the east of the city of Jalalabad in Afghanistan. The combined rivers then flow eastwards into Pakistan again, roughly following the Grand Trunk Road through the Khyber Pass, and joining the Indus River at the city of Attock.

Our Client Reviews
I'm Mike Dawson from New Zealand. I've used Taju now for 2 years in Pakistan to assist us in everything from planning, visas as well as guiding us through his beautiful country. We recently came to Pakistan to kayak the Indus River and he was awesome - Tajammul knows the area really well, is trust worthy & goes the extra mile. Incredibly helpful, knowledgeable and excited to be part of our trip and show the beauty of North Pakistan. I thoroughly recommend him to everyone!
happened to be kayaking the Indus river in Gilgit-Baltistan , Pakistan. And our guide was Tajammul Hussain, young men from Gilgit. Lived his whole life there, so he know the ways like nobody else... he speaks great English , Hurdu and the local dialect from Gilgit. You can have deep conversations with him , and his knowledge of the mountains and the area is just mind blowing and very helpful.
He is very trusty and honest. Always trying to get us the best price and giving us helpful advices on the ways to approach people, buying’s….
Never felt unsafe during the whole trip . and Taju was there for us the whole time. Whatever we needed he would take care of it, he is simply the guy you want to have when going to a foreign country like Pakistan where you don’t understand the language or what’s offensive and what not.
After a successful trip down the Indus, he knows everything it takes to pull out a safe expedition, what are the bad spots and portages…. What are the good sites to camp, where to eat so you don’t get sick, and the rythim it takes to make it in time.
I will be back in Pakistan and the first member of the team will be Taju of course, he is an indispensable piece of the puzzle when putting together an expedition to the Indus river,
I can only be thankful for his services during our trip and very happy now to consider myself his friend.
I’ve traveled all over the world and I never had a guide but with Taju and his driver Dildar I was completely happy and relieved to have them !! Thank you taju for making this trip to Pakistan the best one yet !!
