Yak polo in Pakistan - level 2
Every year in Pakistan, people hold an interesting festival. It takes place nearly 3,000 feet (which is almost 4 km) above sea level.
The major attraction of this festival is a sport called yak polo. It is like regular polo, but the players ride on yaks, not on horses. A yak is a big animal which looks like a hairy cow.
Many people in this area of Pakistan never travel outside the region. They are unfamiliar with things like electricity, hospitals or even clean drinking water.
Difficult words: major (important), attraction (something which makes people come), unfamiliar (when a person does not know something).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
