    Afghanistan not safe for backpackers yet

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    waiting for a better future

    As I said in the intro, Afhanistan is still a very unstable and unpredictable country and should not be visited by adventure seekers and backpackers.

    Will keep the VT family updated if there are any positive changes.

    Landmines in Bamiyan

    by hongmingd Written Sep 29, 2003
    Kaboom

    This picture is sign of a discovered mine, which has yet to be activated. Rocks are painted red for later de-activation. When the rocks are white, the mine has been cleared. When there is no colour, then watch your step. Teams of mine seekers are in Afghanistan all the time. Mines have been planted as little as a metre off most roads. So Afghanistan was not a place for idle wandering around off road.

    On the Defensive

    This must of seen some action during all the years of defending the valley from either Soviets, Taliban, or anyone else.

    Ammunition

    Ammunition

    A typical scene around the cliffs of Bamiyan. Fired and live bullets lying around everywhere. Most places seem to have been de-mined. But we still watched where we put our feet all the time.
