Tour of Afghanistan

The Khyber Pass

The legendary pass that connects Pakistan with Afghanistan has been an important trade route for centuries. It became well known to foreign tourists during the hippie trail years of the 1960s. It is considered unsafe due to banditry and tribal warfare in the region. It’s one of two border crossings between Pakistan and Afghanistan (the other being the Bolan pass). Over the years it has frequently been closed to foreigners. We do not recommend you to consider this route due to the dangers associated with it. It’s better just to fly.

If you’re coming from Iran there is a daily bus from Mashhad to Herat is western Afghanistan.
