My husband will be leaving soon and needs to bring an Epipen. Does anyone know if there are restrictions for this particular medication? It is prescribed by his doctor.
Hi -- I'm looking for sites that show the destruction of the soviet occupation during the cold war. Is anyone able to help. Basically a cold-war tour?
I am transgender at the moment, going to male to female soon. I was wondering if I go there and get F on my birth certificate, can I then wear the burqa? Can men in Afghanistan wear a burqa? I heard only "bad"(Taliban or dangerous) men wear a burqa. Is this true? Thank you!
I am planning to go to Kabul from Peshawar on 3rd of April via Torkhum on public transport. I wonder if anyone else is doing the same on that date or a days around (I maybe flexible for a day up or down) we can pool a club. I am traveling alone.
And most probably staying a night in Kabul, I plan to go to Mazar so if someone else interested in joining me for that particular route or only Peshawar-Kabul one, please text me (+923078893859) my BBM pin is 23AA6F5C
or email me [email]
Looking forward to hear.
I was thinking about working in a postal facility in Afghanistan and wanted to know the actual dangers that one may encounter in the country
Has anybody of you been to Afghanistan lately ?? I would like to go next year from Pakistan via Qandahar, Kabul, Jalalabad back to Pakistan.
If you have info about this route (overland) please let me know your experiences.
Seems to me not many folks are looking at this site and location. If anyone is going to Afganistan next year and want to exchange thoughts and research, please send me an email. I will be going there in a few months and am exploring the options. IE: security, locations, transportation, cost, entry and exit methods.
Anyone been to Northern Afghanistan recently? Seriously consdiering a trip from the Tajik border to Kunduz, Mazar-e-Sharif and Kabul only. Anyone been there? any advice? Any good contacts there, definitely want a guide and maybe a guard. Thanks
I'll be travelling Central Asia in June - July this year (2007), so I was wondering if anyone will be out there around that time and maybe would like to travel together. Here's a brief itinerary:
Start off in Pakistan - up the Karakoram Highway crossing into Kashgar (China) - then into Kyrgyztan - down through the Pamir Mountains and the Hindu Kush crossing into Tajikistan and finally ending up at Dushanbe. Following that, I have no plans as yet but I hope to cross into Afghanistan into Kabul if security conditions permit, otherwise head east or maybe head back to Pakistan.
Hope to hear from all you thrill seekers !!!
Right now Afghanistan is in the news again and they say, a big attack on the Taliban fighters in the South of the country is prepared. I wonder what the situation actually is at the moment for persons like us - travelers.
Are all parts of the country no-go areas or are there still some safe places? And are travelers welcome at all or is there an attitude against foreigners?
So did anybody lately go there and can tell a bit? I'm sure many people would appreciate comments on this topic.
In “my” German Trekkingforum, I have read that a Russian trekker, Sergej, is missing while hiking in the south of Tajikistan / Pamirs.
Please find below the English description, which already has been posted in some hiking forums. Although I am aware that VT is not necessarily a hiking community, I don’t want to miss any possibility.
If anyone knows anything, please don’t post here, but in the German Trekkingforum, which has the English settings as well. It is here, where a friend of Sergej is reading and posting as well. You can answer there also without registration (we have checked this).
This is the post:
Here is the flyer with description also in Farsi:
Here is a map, made with GoogleEarth, where his friend has drawn Sergej’s rough route:
Thanks already in advance.
I will post the description as answer to this post.

Hi everybody ! I collect beer labels almost 20 years... Who is in Afghanistan now or may be going soon , please be so kind to get for my collection some beer paper labels or beer mates ! I will be much obliged to you
Thanks in advance ,
2nd week of March I happen to be in Islamabad/Pakistan and want to take the opportunity take a holiday and do some trekking. But northern areas of Pakistan I heard are all snow-clad and no way we can trek there without equipment etc, so we're thinking now of heading towards Peshawar/Pakistan and Khyber Pass in Afghanistan.
Good idea? Is it safe? Do I need Afghani visa (I mean, I probably do need a visa to cross the border, but maybe trekking is all on Pakistani side?) Are those areas known for trekking?
