Despite the volatility of the country in recent years, Afghanistan is still a richly historic destination in the Middle East. Afghanistan contains numerous mountains and lakes to venture and explore. Band-e Amir is one of Afghanistan’s main tourist attractions. It is a group of five beautiful lakes that makes up the first national park. Afghanistan is also home to countless historical and religious landmarks including the Bamiyan Buddhist sculptures and the Minaret of Jam. Travellers are discouraged from visiting Afghanistan, but it is not forbidden. By sticking to the northern section of the country, risks are significantly reduced.
