Small Group And Independent Travel To Afghanistan
Correct as of early 2021
To many in the west, the name Afghanistan is associated with the Taliban and the war on terror in the early 2000s. But there’s so much more to this beautiful, if war-torn, country.
It’s easy to forget, but Afghanistan formed part of the original hippy trail, enchanting travellers with its mountain range and farrago of cultures. Thanks to modern history, it’s now rare for visitors to venture into the country. But that’s a real shame.
From the Buddha niches in the Bamiyan Valley to Babur’s Gardens from the 16th century, it’s a country with a rich and colourful history. The local population is also famed for its hospitality.
Our group and private tours are a great way to visit a place shunned by tourists for four decades.
Rocky Road Travel specialises in trips to some of the world’s least understood countries, including Afghanistan, Iraq and North Korea.
We deliver safe and sustainable travel that takes you off the beaten track. Our tours in Afghanistan begin in Kabul and take you to such attractions as Darulaman Palace, Sakhi Shrine, and Babur’s Gardens.
From Bamyan airport, we then take you to the famous ancient Buddhist complex.
Here are two World Heritage-listed monumental statues carved into the side of a cliff, the Buddhas of Bamiyan. Although this area was deliberately destroyed by the Taliban, it is still an extraordinary historical site to explore.
