Take a dip in one of the six deep blue lakes underneath spectacular limestone cliffs at Band-e-Amir National Park, a complex of lakes separated by a travertine, a natural dam made of mineral limestone deposits. Standing at about 3,000 m (9,842 ft) in the Hindu Kush mountain range close to the ancient city of Bamyan, the park stands out as the most popular tourist spot in Afghanistan. Pedal the duck boats across lapis-blue lakes and enjoy the fabulous scenery and wildlife around you. Hire a car or drive for some two hours from Bamyan to enjoy a picnic, or buy some fresh fish on the lakeshore and fire up the barbecue. Take the guesswork out of planning a Bamyan vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

  • Is there a bluer blue than the water of Band-e-Amir. The World Conservation Society and the Bamyan community have done an amazing job of preserving this beauty spot. Can't capture its beauty well...

  • Wide area of siting, beautiful view from upper side and much more beautiful and enjoyable when you are in the park with friends and families. Hotels and restaurants around the park are not much of a thing. But you can have great time
  • Its a great place to visit. A natural dam in a valley, surrounded by mountains. Soul refreshing in summer!
