Tangi Tashkurgan gorge

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 asphalted. It encompasses miles of stunning views through twisty hair pin corners, high elevations and steep grades. There are some narrow sections -scarcely wide enough for two cars-. This road is usually open all year, but it can be closed anytime when the access is not cleared of snow. Dizzying roadside sellers offer juicy pomegranates and figs.
