Old timer's of Chilas


Chilas is a tribal settlement in the lower Hunza valley (Northern Areas) of Pakistan, renowned for their ferocious temperament and conversatism. Also known to throw stones at visiting foreigners.... these 2 old timers, however, were actually very friendly and welcomed \the mini photo session.

Incidentally, those beards are real!!!!! The red coloration in the beards is quite typical in these communities - it's done with henna dye.

other sizes: small medium large original auto

Unbelievable color. Why are their beards that color? Are they naturally redheaded?
