|2011 Shandur Polo Tournament – Gilgit-Baltistan Won!|
Shandur towers 3,700m between two rival provinces, Chitral and Gilgit-Baltistan in Northern Pakistan. This is where the Hindukush, Pamir and Karakoram ranges meet creating an amazing flat wetland area, which only can be crossed between late April to early November. The rivalry between the two provinces comes to heat every year at the famous polo tournament.
