Glimpses of the best of new & old Kabul city in 1-5 days, tailored just for you, and enjoy this fine city on foot.
“There’s much more to Kabul and Afghanistan than the headlines. It takes while to acclimatise, relax, but is well worth the effort”, according to traveller Jan Chipchase.
Set in a valley one mile above sea level, surrounded by mountains, Kabul, the capital and the largest city of Afghanistan, has been around for over 3,500 years, seeing many conquerors wanting to establish their presence in this valley due to its strategic location between Southern and Central Asia.
At an elevation of 1,790 metres (5,873 ft), it is one of the highest capital cities in the world. Today’s Kabul is the fifth fastest growing city in the world with a multi-ethnic, multi-cultural and multi-lingual population of over 6 millions. In the second half of 20th century, the city also gained the nickname “Paris of Central Asia” during them days.
