Descendants of Alexander the Great’s army?

From what I have read online, there are claims that the 3,000 – 4,000 Kalash people of rural, northern Pakistan are descendants of Alexander the Great’s army. This is interesting but still not as interesting as the people themselves. If you have never seen pictures of these people, it would certainly be surprising that they are indigenous to Pakistan. These people have a very unique physical appearance, one that must certainly stand out in their region.

The women are photographed much more often than men because they have the more unusual features. Some of the women are actually quite beautiful, too. It would be interesting to actually learn about their culture because, aside from the aesthetic aspect, they must certainly have preserved many ancient traditions and beliefs. It has been noted that some of their theology and philosophy resembles that of ancient Greece and India along with Zoroastrianism.
