    In all honesty, I think that Afghanistan would make a great place to travel if it wasn't so f***ed up.

    I watched a really interesting movie once, about these Australian guys who went snowboarding in the North. It may have been called White Silk Road. Their trip over there was definitely cooler than mine.

    Yeah for sure! But sounds like a dream that'll never happen like many countries, there're many beautiful landscapes but too much guys f***** up

    That doesnt seem to stop tourists though. In our AO back in 08 is wasn't out of the ordinary to come across them. Between the Buddah's, Band e Amir Lakes and other randoms areas that Genghis Khan and Alexander the Great stomped through, It wasn't unusual to be on patrol and get approached by a Poms, Aussies and Canadians once the see the Kiwi's and Flags

    Plenty of tourists in country, they tend to stay out of the South but sometimes they end up there too.

    Anyway,the mountains are cool and all but I'm partial to the deserts in the south and maybe mountains in Uruzgan. Hopefully sometime within the next 20 years I can book a trip to see them villages as a tourist.

    Seriously??? WOW! I'm surprised that they even grant visas to these countries.

    Guess I could go right now. First two tourist sites that popped up on google. In addition you get the independent tourists. Not sure if true, but some years ago there was this story about two Japanese tourist found dead in Farah province.
