Sunrise of Bamyan Valley

Bamyan Valley is home to the giant ancient Buddha statues, at least what is left of them after the Taliban destroyed them in 2001. They valley is stunning with a rich history, some of it very prosperous and powerful, other times tragic and violent (Ghengis Khan destroyed it in the 13th century).
