What to do in Afghanistan
Afghanistan is a mountainous country in the heart of Asia. This oasis in the desert is full of mystical attractions, gorgeous Islamic architecture, and scenery that you wouldn’t expect. So if you want a bit of magic in your destination from both manmade and natural wonders, Afghanistan is perfect for you.
Afghanistan has several UNESCO World Heritage Sites. There’s the incredible Bamiyan Buddhas, the towering Minaret of Jam, and the beautifully blue Shrine of Hazrat Ali.
Fly to Kabul and have a stroll or a picnic at the Gardens of Babur. There are also swimming pools, mosques, a museum, and other interesting spots within the area. You can even go boating, water skiing, swimming, and horseback riding at the lovely Lake Qargha. Don’t forget to visit Kabul Zoo with your family too.
Check out the culture next and visit the impressive Darul Aman Palace, the National Archives of Afghanistan, National Gallery of Afghanistan, and the National Museum of Afghanistan. Of course, you have to travel to Herat and bring your camera to the stunning Great Mosque of Herat, Herat Citadel, and Gazar Gah.
If you’re looking for a bit of adventure, enjoy a pleasant hike at Kabul Wall for great views over the city. Conquer the trek of the beautiful Panjshir Valley. Do you love to ski? Then you can’t miss Bamiyan Valley. Explore the Shahr-e Gholghola from high above to get the perfect views of the entire valley.
Not far from here is the breathtaking and remote Band-e Amir National Park. You’ll fall in love with its five turquoise lakes that are surrounded by sandy mountains.
And the perfect way to complete your trip to Afghanistan is by catching the sunrise at the top of Band-e Haibat. Not only will you get great views, the scenery will even double when the mountains are perfectly reflected in the lake.
