Afghanistan: Climate & Weather

The country benefits from a continental climate with high differences of temperature between day and night as well as summer and winter, especially in the mountain areas. Precipitation varies from one area to another, the dominant being a dryer climate, especially in the north-west and south of the country.

Autumn is without doubt the best season to visit Afghanistan as the weather is dry with warm temperatures. If you go in summer, only in the mountains will you not suffer from the extreme heat. Spring sees the plants flowering as well as frequent rain and the melting of the snows. In winter, snow covers a large part of the country.

What to do in Afghanistan

It is obvious that at present this country is not a great tourist destination: Many of its riches have been destroyed and an unhappy and hungry population is not symptomatic of a pleasant trip.

However there is no lack of places to visit.

Kabul, surrounded by mountains, until recently sheltered an archaeological museum rich in objects originating from India, China and Syria but this was unfortunately pillaged.

Bamiyan became better known after its large Buddhas were dynamited by the Taliban at the beginning of this century. Other sites still remain in this valley; the ruins of a fortress at Char-é-Zohak, the lakes at Bnad-é-Amir, the Adjar canyon...

Mazar-e-Charif possesses a magnificent blue mosque dating from the 15th Century, a sacred place that attracted a large number of pilgrims before the Spring Festival was forbidden.

Afghanistan: The basics

The aerial route is the most practical to get to Afghanistan; the only international airport is at Kabul.

At present, no tourist visas are being issued for Afghanistan. The currency in circulation is the Afghani.

A hotel room costs around €50 if you require a minimum of comfort.

To ravel within the interior of the country there are interior airlines operating as well as crowded buses without fixed timetables that stop frequently without warning and for a variety of reasons.

Reminder: Unveiled women attract a lot of attention!
