Polo in Pakistan

Polo – a game of horse, stick and ball – is said to have its origins in Central Asia.

The Shandur Polo Tournament, played at

the world’s highest pologround

every June, is one of the biggest tourist draws to Chitral and Gilgit in Northern Pakistan.

This photo is taken in Gilgit during a local training match and its

a really dangerous sport, for spectators

who sit carelessly around the polo ground.
