For well over 40 years, Afghanistan has been a no-go area for foreign tourists. War after war against powerful invaders from the Soviet Union, the US and others have put a stop to Afghanistan tours altogether. These days, however, Afghanistan’s travel industry is on the mend as more and more tourists make the brave but rewarding journey to this fascinating land.
Rocky Road Travel, along with our travel partners CultureRoad, offers private and group Afghanistan tours all year round. We work with the most reputable local guides on the ground in Afghanistan, who are adept at constantly following the safety situation on the ground. Our itineraries only follow well-trodden paths that are safe.
On Rocky Road tours to Afghanistan, we visit the capital city Kabul, the northern city of Mazer-E Sharif, the western city of Herat and the remote area of Bamian. Very few tourists make it to this area of outstanding natural beauty.
Major tourist sites that we visit include the Darulaman Palace, Sakhi Shrine in Kabul, the buddha caves in Bamian, the Band-E Amir lakes and the iconic Friday mosque in Herat. Afghanistan truly has it all; from some of the best scenery in the world, incredible cultural sites and the most hospitable people on the planet.
Now’s the time to travel to Afghanistan. It remains completely off the tourist trail, but who knows for how long? Hopefully, a Taliban peace deal will bring newfound hope and peace for the Afghani people and tourists will start slowing making their way back to this amazing country.
