“Only two things in life have no rules: war and polo.” If you ever attend the Shandur Polo Festival, you will understand.

As a rider, I’ve been dreaming of seeing this epic, rough tournament for well over a year. See, this right here is the birthplace of polo 🐎 - the wider Central Asian plains, so close to the borders of Afghanistan and Tajikistan. 
In this breathtaking location, Shandur is also the world’s highest polo ground, at 3,800m in altitude. And it’s one of the very few places where polo is played freestyle, no rules applicable, no referee present.

In short, everything about this tournament is extreme: the altitude, the remoteness, the people and their horses, and of course the energy and roughness of the game.

I was so excited to finally make it here 💛 The feeling was beyond words.

The Shandur Polo Festival takes place every year at the start of July, in the extreme North of Pakistan. Big thank you to the Tourism Corporation Khyber Pakhtunkhwa for helping organize this awesome event.

Attabad Lake, a glorious reminder that there can be beauty in tragedy!😍
This lake was made only few years ago by landslide.
