 After over two years, the annual Shandur Polo Festival will be held on its old schedule in July this year, an official of the Tourism Corporation, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa has said.

 

Talking to a news agency, he said, “It will be organised from July 7 to 9, as for a couple of years the annual three-day calendar festival could not be held due to floods and Ramadan last year, however, this year, efforts have been taken to hold the event on its old schedule in July,” he also confirmed.

The TCKP, he said, has started a process to put in place the arrangements and float advertisements to attract tourists from across the world.

In this regard, officials from the Gilgit-Baltistan government are likely to be invited to Peshawar to make the arrangements in order to facilitate the spectators.
