Gardez Overview

Gardez is a city in east Afghanistan, located in the Paktia province. It’s at a junction between two important roads, one linking Pakistan with Ghazni, the other connecting Kabul and Khost. The city is 7600 ft above sea level, and it can take some time to get acclimated to the new climate.
Most of Gardez is barren desert. It suffered from a decades of drought. Much of the city’s reconstruction efforts have been accomplished by the US Military and International Development teams through the Gardez Provincial Reconstruction Team [PRT].
