In the hot summer of Karachi and Lahore, during your trip to Skardu its temperature is around less than 30 degree centigrade. You need to bring some sweaters along you in case of rain, and please come out of the myth that no snow falling happens anywhere in gilgit baltistan in summer 🙂

Whole Gilgit Baltistan almost has the same weather except Chilas. Chilas is the only place where you can feel your presence in Lahore, Multan or Karachi.

Polo played in GB called rough style polo, in which “There is no rule, you have a stick, horse, ball and you. Your mission is to goal as much as you can.”

introduced by Ali Sher Khan Anchan and played first game of polo ever in GB at Shandur when he conquered Chitral.


Before planning you trip to Skardu specially, do let us know in comment or anyone in circle who have access to anyone in Skardu, do ask him about the polo tournament date. In summer atleast 3-4 polo events happens in Baltistan regions only on different venues; Skardu Shahi Polo Ground, Yabgo Polo Ground Khaplu and Shigar Polo Ground. Better to visit in between any of the event, so make your trip more worthful. If you never been in any polo game before, this will be an amazing opportunity to witness a much worthy show, full pack spectators, polo players having heroic welcome in the ground in every game. During game if the playing stick slip from any of the players hand, volunteers from the public risking their lives to just keep the game equaling going. I remembered only thing of my child hood is watching polo with my friend circle.
