Lake Band-e-Amir, Afghanistan

    Newer Older

    Band-e-amir is a series of deep blue lakes nestled amidst limestone canyons. This is Afghanistan’s Grand Canyon, truly a sight inspiring of awe.
    Weather is worth traveling through Taliban territory to get here is entirely another question.

      That is fantastic. I bet the water is freezing. Do the locals fish it?

      Afghanistan is a very beautiful country. I have been here for half a year now, and regardless of the fact of riding around in armored vehicles with a weapon, I have seen beautiful sites. There are ruins all over the place and you would be amazed how beautiful this country really is even though it has been torn apart by war and invasion for a lot of its history. Once this conflict is resolved and we have subdued the enemy, I think I will be coming back on vacation with my wife and sons
