    Polo the Game of Kings, and the king of all games had its beginning in Baltistan. Unlike its international version, invented by the British, which is broken into seven-minute segments, at the end of which horses can be substituted, People over here play free style polo, with no referee, no rules and no change of horses during the play.

    “It is one of the toughest sports I’ve ever seen” Michael Palin mentioned in his article appeared in the Sunday Times on 1st January 2006. Not only Michael but every tourist who visit this land has the same view for this game.

    A regular Polo tournament is held every year between Skardu, Khaplu, Rondu, Shiger, Chorbat, Gilgit and Chitral. Every match between these teams is a nail biting battle which attract thousands of tourist from all over the world.
