About Afghanistan

Afghanistan is chiefly a mountainous country; the Hindu Kush and Kyber Pass, connecting Afghanistan and Pakistan, once a magnet for adventurous travellers.

Afghanistan and Neighbouring Countries

Map of Kabul - The Capital of Afghanistan

Ahmad Shah Durrani unified the Pashtun tribes and founded Afghanistan in 1747. The country served as a buffer between the British and Russian Empires until it won independence from notional British control in 1919.

Countries neighbouring Afghanistan:
Iran, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, China and Pakistan.

Weather in Asia:
Local weather forecasts for destinations around Asia.

Visiting Afghanistan

Afghanistan has no railways, and travel within the country is made more difficult by the rugged terrain.

Rivers are used for transporting timber, but they are not navigable, so camels and other pack animals are widely used for transporting goods over the mountain areas.

Flights within the country are operated by Ariana Afghan Airlines; when the airports aren't closed.

Ariana Afghan Airlines: (FG)
With the Taliban out of power, the airline is trying to resume services.

Afghanistan Information

Afghan Web:
Afghanistan Online provides updated news and information on Afghan culture, history, politics, society, languages, sports, publications, communities and economy.

Kabul Museum:
Not quite the Louvre, but there is a tragic story here. Many glorious antiquities were destroyed or looted when the museum was bombed in 1993. Only 52 pieces have been recovered. Three galleries, although the bold italics can be a bit much.
