Afghanistan Things to Do: 48 reviews and 51 photos
I have driven the 12 hours from Kabul to Mazar-I-Sharif and back at least a dozen times and I fall in love with the majestic Hindu Kush all over again every time. The Salang Tunnel was built by the Russians during their occupation of Afghanistan. It is an amazing and eerie piece of architecture.
Address: Salang Tunnel at about 14 thousand feet.
Directions: Road from Kabul to Mazar.
