"City of the Buddhas" Bamiyan by Cdnexpat
Bamiyan Travel Guide: 49 reviews and 110 photos
The famous Buddhas were destroyed in 2001. The caves where the gigantic statues stood are a memorial to the ancient civilization that lived in these mountains.
Band-Amir lakes are deep mountain lakes, fed from underwater sources. The pristine water is always a dark blue, reflecting the mountain sky, in its deepth.
The ancient Red City, a few kilometers from Bamiyan, stands guard over three valleys.
- Pros:Bamiyan is the only really tourist place in Afghanistan.
- Cons:Getting there is the hard part.
- In a nutshell:The city high in the mountains.
