Afghan Explorer

Afghanistan needs no introduction; just the name is enough to have most politicians panicking, journalists packing and wild travellers salivating with expectation. News, time and again over the centuries, has focused on this most extraordinary arid and mountainous country in middle-Asia and now, as always, its place at the heart of world affairs is as poignant as ever. Our Afghan Explorer tour takes us through the mountains and plains; following in the footsteps of Marco Polo.

From Kabul and the foothills of the Hindu Kush, we will visit the extraordinary city of Herat; the famous mountain caves of Bamiyan, the breath-taking lakes at Band-e Amir, the historical northern town of Mazar-e Sharif as well as the famous Panjshir Valley. Afghanistan is undergoing tremendous change at the moment but for the vast majority of Afghans, daily life continues in much the same vein as it has for centuries so we will have ample opportunities to witness traditional lifestyles from farming and pottery-making to silk-weaving and daily prayer.

It may sound obvious but anyone wishing to travel to Afghanistan must understand that in places the tourist infrastructure is almost non-existent. Days can be long and hard, and movement can be restricted by security considerations. However, don’t let this put you off - in our opinion Afghanistan is one of the most fascinating countries in the world.

Highlights:

  • The city walls & Moghul gardens of Kabul
  • Bamiyan Valley & Band-e Amir lakes
  • The Shrine of Ali at Mazar-e Sharif
  • The beautiful Panjshir Valley
  • Herat’s Friday Mosque, citadel & old city
