Road through the mountains
Posted by Brian Jones
24 May 2004 –
Travelling through Afghanistan is an extraordinary experience. The area is so mountainous that any journey, particularly in the central region, will take you through narrow valleys and over precipitous mountain passes.
The place is majestically beautiful being both bleak and rugged with areas of intense greeness and fertility. Settlements rely on ground water sources and its not uncommon to find areas of green high up on an otherwise barren mountain side, where a spring errupts and provides a little haven of agricultural potential.
