|Is all of Afghanistan dangerous for travellers
In July I had been in Tajikistan, along the Afghanistan border. I personally met a LOT of travellers likely there. Indeed, the Main Asia Lonely Planet (British version) has a picture of the temple from within Afghanistan,NFL Jerseys.
However, because of slight medical emergency, I needed to backtrack from Khorog along the Afghanistan national boundaries again to Dushanbe and leave after that. Otherwise I'd totally have gone across for a few days.
So why are generally people going? For the Wakhan Hallway - a sliver with land perfect for trekking, and also well away from the war-zones. It's deemed pretty safe, but again, you would need to check your insurance since not be covered there.
Even so, anywhere west of Fayzabad and you're starting to get into dangerous territory. Very. One Dutch traveller I met had a cops escort at a point in addition to heard explosions. It's still dangerous.
And intensely, if the Taliban decides to division out and start kidnapping tourists inside Wakhan Corridor,louis vuitton sale, it may change. It's actually a very volatile place.
Nonetheless, if you go to Khorog, there's a great Afghanistan embassy on the south side from the river in town, open from 9am. You can get a visa for Afghanistan inside of 24 hours.
It's important to make sure you have a visa and entry with the Tajikistan side when you return, on the other hand, as if you need to get a new mastercard in Afghanistan, all embassies will be in Kabul. So you don't want to have to travel there if you don't want to.
Of course, all of it depends how crazy you happen to be. I also met two Russians whom had hitchhiked from Moscow to Tajikstan as well as were continuing on to Kabul. It can be entirely possible, just not guaranteed.
