PAGHMAN – L’Hotel BAHAR
Taste of a Century
Located nearby monumental gate ”Arch of Victory” similar to the Arc de Triomphe in Paris, as a memorial to Afghanistan’s 1919 war of independence from Britain. Covering 5 acres, this oasis of peace amid the clogged population of Kabul city dates back to the reign of Ghazi Amanullah the sovereign and King of Afghanistan 1919-1929.
The King formally ordered, supervised and opened the completed royal Bahar Hotel, which includes majestic 100+ year-old Native Walnut trees preserved on the periphery of the garden, offering as its focal point. Gutted and eerily empty, however, now there is nothing left of what was once the King’s hillside pastel pink Bahar Hotel. The spectacular Walnut trees and this garden are now maintained and rebuilding by “Kite Travel Boutique” team (2023).
At its perimeter, it has a number of cafés. Additionally, various foods are available, and a beautiful garden with flowers. Furthermore, tennis courts and ice-cream stands complete the picture. In addition, the park hosts open-air family gatherings during the summer and nature-lovers alike.
Paghman, known as the summer capital of Afghanistan, transformed into a holiday retreat at the bottom of the Hindu Kush Mountain. Cultural and historic treasures abound in Paghman.
We have proudly unearthed fresh and tingling natural water Spring after a 100-year journey through time at site L’Hotel BAHAR.
Everything starts in the early 20th century, when nobles travel to Paghman Valley at the foot of the Hindu Kush Mountains, to take the natural water for its health benefits, then take a few bottles home.
Jabriel Spring Natural Mineral Water has nurtured this icon of Afghan taste for 100 years.
Be warned that the water is pretty frosty even in the summer.
