Photographer's Note

Ayun is a village in Chitral district, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan, 12 km south of the town of Chitral.

It is renowned for its green lush beauty and often equated with the famous J. R. R. Tolkien's fictional Shire. Markhor and snow leopards can often be seen dwelling the mountains. The valley comes alive during the season of April and flowers and fruits blossom everywhere.

Ayun is also the gateway to the renowned Kalash community in Pakistan residing on the other side of the mountain.

It is located on the Chitral River at its confluence with the Bumburet River. Mountains surround the village.

The Bumburet River runs the length of the village and is harnessed to generate electricity for both Ayun and for the village of Broze. The Bumburet River also provides water for irrigation and for drinking.
