The Unseen Afghanistan

Khyber Kha...

While the Central Asian nation of Afghanistan is perhaps most associated with war and conflict, there is more to this country than what is always on news headlines. The country is rich and full of beautiful landscape with snowcapped mountains (including some of the world's highest peaks), lush green valleys, magnificent deserts, and historical monuments from ancient empires. This aerial film by contributor and drone pilot Khyber Khan captures and showcases some of the breathtaking beauty of the land.

Top AirVuz contributor and DVA Finalist Khyber Khan put together this magnificent aerial tour of the Hindu Kush Mountains of Afghanistan.  Considered a western extension of the Himalayan Mountain chain, the Hindu Kush run for about 800 km (just under 500 mi.) through eastern Afghanistan and into neighboring Tajikstand and China.  Known in the Antiquity as the Caucasus Indicus or Paropamisadae range, their highest peaks reach an altitude of 7.7k meters above sea level (25.3k ft.).  This video was a DVOW Finalist in January, 2020.

AirVuz contributor mustafa12 brings us this stunning (and rather haunting) drone video from Afghanistan as much of this Central Asian country (and much of the world) was under various levels of community quarantine to fight the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic.  The video features footage from the national capital of Kabul as well as from around the countryside.  While the country appeared to be faring much better than its very hard-hit neighbor Iran, Afghanistan nevertheless had seen nearly 3,000 confirmed infections by early May, 2020.

Kabul, Afghanistan is one of the least-known major cities of Asia.  It's the capital and largest city in this Central Asian Republic, which has been wracked by war (civil and otherwise) for much of the past several decades.  In this drone video, you will get a bird's eye view of the Afghan capital city, which is the center of a metropolitan area of over 5 million.  With a rich history dating to the Antiquity, the city is located in a valley of the Hindu Kush Mountains, home to some of the highest peaks in the world.
