Enjoy a day trip out of Kabul to the Panjshir Valley with Afghan Logistics and Tours. This deep river valley houses rushing waters, steep rising canyon walls, and a fertile flood plain around the mighty river. The amazing natural beauty of this area belies the historical importance to Afghanistan: as a defensive point where Soviet incursion was repelled nine times. On this tour you can visit the tomb of Ahmad Shah Massoud, one of the most noteworthy leaders of the resistance, which is perched high in the mountains. The tomb offers a view over the river valley and surrounding mountains – it is a view Ahmad Shah Massoud must have had himself as he defended the narrow gorge from invasion. On this tour you will be able to see old Soviet tanks which can still be found, even today, abandoned within the valley.
