Polo Practice at Shandur

Shandur [12205ft] is the highest polo ground on earth where free-style polo between teams from Chitral and Gilgit is played every year from July 7 to 9. Besides polo, the event provides an opportunity to highlight the cultural aspects of Chitral. It also affords an enabling environment for the folk dancers and folksingers.
