Shandur is the Highest Polo Ground on Earth. Located about 3738 meters above sea level between the Chitral District and Ghizer District of Gilgit-Baltistan. It is often called the ‘Roof of the World’. The top is flat, a plateau, and can be crossed between late April and early November.
In addition to its natural attractions, each summer a hug event called the Shandur Polo Festival is organized here. There is a polo match being played between the teams of Chitral District and districts of Gilgit-Baltistan. That is also a big source of attraction for tourists. Different people come against each other in this freestyle contest.
The Shandur Pass is one of the major mountain passes of Pakistan. Also, one of the best places to visit in Pakistan. It is generally unpopulated and passing through its snow-covered slopes in winters is an exceptionally difficult adventure. The polo ground is about 168 Km from the main town Chitral and accessible by jeep. The road is closed during winter due to heavy snow.
