AFGHANISTAN TRAVEL

                                                   
 
NOT TRAVELED YET

Travelling in Kabul is extremely dangerous and is strongly discouraged. 
The current Afghan government has little control over Kabul which is effectively a war zone. Threats are unpredictable and the situation remains volatile.

Helmand Province
Since the 2001 War in Afghanistan, Helmand Province has been a hotbed of insurgent activities. It has been considered to be Afghanistan's "most dangerous" province.
The famous Khyber Pass is currently closed to anyone except Afghans or Pakistanis. Some travel blogs/forums claim that hiding in a vehicle and bribing the border guards works, but doing so is very risky and could lead to imprisonment. Even more risky, however, is the threat from Taliban near the pass, who have been known to kill/kidnap Westerners. You are strongly discouraged from passing through the Khyber Pass. (May 2009)
LGBT are not welcome in Afghanistan with penalties of up to death for gays and lesbians that visit. Vigilante executions are common and police will join in or turn a blind eye to violence. No businesses are open to the LGBT community and they will refuse accommodations and possibly attack you, kill you or report you to the police.
