Shandur Pass and Chitral

Day 36...

small town of Gupis enroute to Chitral

the day long trip from Gilgit to Chitral passes by many beautiful green valleys and mountains

Shandur Pass is one of the highest polo ground in the world, flanked by many mountain peaks of the Hindukush

the local kids love to gather around the bus whenever we stop
