My son Thomas with nomadic gold-hunters. Several families live along the Indus River in tents. We met those people while walking a street and waiting for a possibility to hitchhike to Astor.
The surrounding mountains are stunning (from this point the Nanga Parbat is visible). The Indus runs through this rough stone "desert". But get in touch with these people was a highlight.
To travel with small children was easy for us. One thing is important: Time. Time to adapt.
