Travel Warning

WARNING: 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)

There are a number of roads into Afghanistan:
  • From Peshawar, Pakistan via the Khyber Pass to Jalalabad, in the East.
  • From Quetta, Pakistan to Kandahar, in the South.
  • From Mashad, Iran to Herat, in the West.
  • From Uzbekistan to Mazar-e Sharif, in the North.
  • From Tajikistan to Kunduz, in the North-West.
  • As of mid-2009, none of these routes can be considered safe. The Khyber and the Quetta to Kandahar route are particularly dangerous.
