Yak polo in Pakistan

Yak polo in Pakistan

02-10-2014 07:00

Here is news from Pakistan. Every year, people hold a festival there. Part of the festival has an interesting sport. It is called yak polo.

It is like normal polo. However, the players don’t ride on horses. They ride on yaks! A yak is a big animal. It looks like a hairy cow.

This area of Pakistan is very traditional. The people there don’t know about electricity, hospitals or other things. Many people never leave this area.

Difficult words: hold (have), hairy (a lot of hair), traditional (without modern ideas or things).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
