Pakistan and Mogadishu trips – June 2014

In June we ran two trips to Pakistan. One of the Pakistan trips coincided with the Shandur Polo festival. Held at a mountain pass at 3800 metres in altitude the festival pits polo teams from the two rival valleys of Gilgit and Chitral. The skill of the players is amazing but the whole atmosphere of the three day event is what makes it special. A desolate plateau high in the Hindu Kush mountains is turned into a temporary village with music, food stall and dancing between the games.  Photos from that trip can be found here.

We also ran a private trip to Mogadishu in June. Photos can be found here.
