Friendly, beautiful Afghanistan was once well known on the backpacking circuit as the place to stop for unparalleled hospitality, fantastic food, great hiking, well say it, that legendary hashish.

The poverty left in wars wake has taken an impossible human toll and encouraged the theft and sale of priceless national treasures.
