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.

Afghanistan under Covid-19 Quarantine


Covid-19 Afghanistan


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.  

Around Northern Afghanistan


North Afghanistan


Check out these marvelous drone views of northern Afghanistan, compliments of AirVuz contributor and pilot mustafa12.    The northern part of this giant Central Asian country is a mixture of plains and some of the world's highest mountains, with much in between.  The video includes footage from the Hindu Kush Mountains, the northern city of Mazar-i-Sharif (the country's fourth-largest by population), the town of Balkh just northwest of Mazar-i-Sharif, the national capital of Kabul, and more.  

Kabul: Afghanistan's Capital City

Explore snow-covered Kabul, Afghanistan in this excellent drone video by AirVuz contributor Jamil Yosufi.   The video was filmed in the area around the Kārte Seh neighborhood in the southwestern part of the city.  Despite being at roughly the same latitude of the southern Mediterranean Sea, Kabul's climate is cold due largely to the fact that it sits in a valley of the Hindu Kush mountains at an altitude of about 5.9k ft. above sea level (around 1.8k m); its average January and February temperatures are below freezing.
