Day 10: Chitral
This is one of the last trial games before selection of the team to take on arch-rivals Gilgit in the biggest free-style polo match in the world.
It's to be played on the top of the 12,000-foot (3660 m) Shandur Pass, the highest point of the mountain road that connects the two competing communities. At least 5000 Chitral fans will make the journey up to the pass to support their team.
Sikander grins broadly, and grips my hand in a firm Ul-Mulk handshake.
'See you there!'
