Tangi Tashkurgan gorge

A road through the Tangi Tashkurgan gorge

Tangi Tashkurgan is an amazing gorge located in Balkh province of northern Afghanistan.

The gorges are traversed by the twisty AH76 road, the Kabul-Mazar Road. The road is paved. It’s 135 km long, running from Kholm (or Khulm) towards Puli Khumri (Pul-i-Khumri or Pol-e Khomri). The road is very narrow. Always check the weather forecast before you start your journey. It’s often washed out after heavy rains. Dizzying roadside sellers offer juicy pomegranates and figs.
