I’ve seen polo played on horses and even elephants before, but never on yaks. Those are the steeds used by four teams that play in a remote corner of Pakistan however, and they even hold an annual tournament to see which of them is the best. Villagers in the beautiful Broghil Valley region – situated at about 3962 meters (13,000 ft) – ride their favorite yaks while knocking a tiny ball around a picturesque alpine meadow.
It is definitely a site to behold. Check it out in the video below, and start sharpening up your yak riding skills if you want to take part in this event.
