  • Obviously I’m happier in the mountains. I was taking a few photos of these giants lining the Yasin Valley and then just stood there staring at them (do people even do this anymore?). I was particularly obsessed with the snow capped one, it’s like you could feel the winds and ice that carved it in its jaggedness over the years. It was about that point that Murad and everyone else with us joined me and Murad snatched my camera from me. ⁣
⁣
“You think you speshal?!? HAHAHAHAHA!”-Murad⁣
⁣
*snaps photo*⁣
⁣
I don’t think I’ve ever met anyone that laughs as hard as Murad does.... or as hard as everyone did on that NATCO bus down from China a few days before when one of the Chinese officers went on a verbal tirade on a young Pakistani man who very obviously didn’t understand a word of English as the officer screamed at him this now among us famously hilarious quote. As soon as he shut the van door everyone burst into laughter. ⁣
⁣
So if you were wondering why I’m dying laughing in a photo in Northern Pakistan it’s thanks to my jokester friend Murad. ⁣
⁣
Pakistan is a place I can’t wait to return to later this year and explore even more. I can’t believe I’ve stayed away this long, even after my friend Ayub tried luring me back to attend not one, but two of his daughter’s weddings (I really wish I could have). ⁣
⁣
So much like Tajikistan the mountains are what attracted me to Pakistan, but the people are what will keep bringing me back. ⁣
⁣
Murad & Ayub have went on to start their own trekking company in Gilgit-Baltistan. So if you are thinking about visiting Pakistan and aren’t quite keen on going on your own I definitely would get in touch with them @hktoursandtreks ⁣

  • Lulusar lake at the top of Babusar Pass feeds the river Kunhar which runs through the famous Kaghan valley. Supposedly it is stoked with Scottish salmon

  • This festival is held from the 7th to the 9th of July every year on Shandur Pass in Chitral District of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa in Pakistan . The polo match is played between the teams of Chitral District and districts of Gilgit-Baltistan, is a free style game. 
Like the rest games , this game is unique because of "No Rule " Whether the polo stick touches or whether the stick by mistake touch you or your horse, game will not stop . You have to goal at any price ! It is the sign of Mutual Trust that we don't need any third person .
 Since Childhood I have been watching this game . بس مقبول صایبو زور کوری اسکوٹو ٹیمو کھلاڑی غاڑوڅونین دیکار اچی بوختیکہ پھرتم .
It is said that , The polo Match started from 1935 , at the time at British Administration . 
In 2019 , China and Afghanistan teams have also been invited to participate ! 
The visitors who previously visited Shandur Polo must be aware of  The Hospitality of Gilgit and Chitral . .
