Chitral, August 27: Donkey and Yak polo is the most interesting and unique game of Broghil valley. situated almost 300 kilometers away from the main Chitral Town. It takes two days to reach Broghil Valley. Presently, the road links up to a post of the paramilitary Chitral Scouts. From there onward, the people have to travel by feet, or use horses and donkeys.
The Broghil Valley lacks basic facilities and many locals say that they are still living in the stone age. Many of the people of the valley have not traveled outside and they are not familiar with modern facilities, like electricity. Access to health, clean drinking water and remains a major challenge in the valley.
Music and polo go side by side.
