Afghanistan has always been a popular travel destination, starting with Alexander the Great and ending with the bearded hippies of the seventies. The wars in the country since 1979 have ended this tourism, for now. A lot of money has been poured into the country to make it a happening place again, and when one day the violence ends, it will be.
In the meantime, you are never 100% safe in Afghanistan. Travel here at your own risk. Off the beaten track Afghanistan sounds like a great adventure, but it’s likely to be littered with mines.
If you come prepared, then prepare to be amazed. Afghanistan is addictive, and it’s like no other place in the world. Travel to Afghanistan, and never be the same again.
We haven’t written a lot about Afghanistan yet. The only place where we have detailed information on is the Wakhan Corridor.
