looking up the upper Keshem Valley
After visiting Keshem Valley in May of 2007, I have decided that this place not only makes it on the list, but actually tops all the rest.  Keshem Valley holds my award for the most beautiful place in Afghanistan.  I really have a hard time putting into words how amazingly beautiful this place is.  By matter of comparison, you've got to think Switzerland.  It's a green valley with lots of farms on the lower part of the valley, and lots of high mountain pastures at the higher end.  The whole valley is surrounded by snow-capped mountains and is cut by a clean, gushing river.  It's far away, and hard to get to, but worth every effort to get there.  I highly recommend traveling to Keshem for a trek.  It is absolutely amazing.  You can look up some more info on getting there at www.greatgametravel.com.

Thank you for sharing such amazing photos and writing about Afghanistan. It almost brings tears to my eyes because I've had to look at so many unpleasant images and read about such horrific acts in Afghanistan. It's really refreshing to see that this country is filled with so much beauty and richness. You have made Afghanistan much less frightening and much more human and at times even enchanting.
