According to his initial survey Balti resembles more the Kham dialect than other Tibetan dialects of U and Thsang and Amdo etc. He further suggests that either the first Tibetan settlers of Baltistan could be the Khambas or at least majority of the settlers were Khambas.
The present Balti language or Balti form of Tibetan language is spoken in the whole of Baltistan and it is said that Purki-dialect of Purig and Suru-Kartse valleys come in to the Balti group linguistically.
All the languages and dialects of the mountain region in the north of Pakistan including Burushaski and Shina belong to the Indian or Persian group of languages, but the Balti is the only language which belongs to the "Tibeto-Burman" branch of "Sino-Tibetan" group of languages.

In some areas, locals still speak of the "mountain ass" ("Shan l" or "jakala" in the local Kham dialect of Tibetan), an animal described as having the body of a small horse with the sharp short horns of a goat.

Mountains have always been and will probably continue to be the last refuges of much of the world's wildlife.
