Barren mountains close to the Afghan border
Posted by Brian Jones
12 April 2004 –
This is a typical scene from the district of Chaghi close to the border with Afghanistan. The area is characterised by a stony desert, a far cry from picturesque sand dunes. The mountains stretch off into the distance and appear almost totally devoid of life. The only form of communications are the rough desert roads that meander between along the valley floors and criss crossed with smuggler routes.
The feeling of desolation is difficult to describe and its quite possible to drive for upwards of six hours and not see a soul.
