Game of the Lost Kingdoms - Chitral VS Gilgat
The polo game between Chitral and Gilgat has been played for the centuries. Indeed Gilgate is considered the birthplace of polo. The game takes place every summer, in July, near the Shandur pass. At 3734 meters, this polo field is the highest in the world.
