"Crosing the Shilami Plains" Afghanistan Things to Do Tip by LeeHarrison

Afghanistan Things to Do: 48 reviews and 51 photos

If you're heading for the Punjshir valley then you'll pass through this region. The Shimali plains marked the former line of control between the Taliban and Northern aliance. Everywhere is debis. Tanks lay scattered and houses flattened. It's a pretty desolate place but still inhabited. There's plenty of de-mining going on in this region. I took a taxi straight through but there's supposed to be a village worth visting. Check the online Bradt guide or more more details on this.
