Shandur Polo Festival at HIGHEST POLO GROUND of the WORLD in Pakistan

As Shandur Polo Festival is about to start in a couple of days, so I thought to give it some rightly deserved place on my Pakistan Travel Blog. You can view some of the most beautiful pictures underneath, while you can also see the Beautiful Postage Stamp issued by Pakistan Post here: Shandur Polo Festival Postage Stamp
Historical Polo Match at the Highest Polo Ground of the World is played between the teams of Gilgit and Chitral as the culminating point of the festival and the highlight of the Event.
Military Bands marches at the start of Shandur Polo Festival.
Horses and riders get ready for another exhibition of courage and strength at the Shandur Polo Ground.
Polo gets underway. Riders fight for glory.
Shandur Polo Ground is an absolute beauty at the height of 3,700 meters above mean sea level, which turn out to be a massive 12,650 Feet - Most of the countries DO NOT have a mountain peak of that height ;)
Lovely view of Shandur Free Style Polo

Para Gliding at such a height can also be fun to watch and perform.
