More info

Band-e Amir, the first Afghan National Park in the Bamiyan province, has a spectacular environment. It is 41 000 ha wide, has five lakes with intense blue crystalline water, set in the red cliffs and separated by the natural travertine dike. Popular belief puts this wonder of the world down to Ali, the son-in-law of the Prophet Muhammad and founder of Shia Islam. Many pilgrims who come here are also attracted by the water's renowned curative powers in which they bathe on Friday, the day of common prayers. The Band-e Amir Natural Park, an asset in the country's tourist trade could once again attract the many foreign visitors it drew until the 1970s. In 2004, the Afghan authorities wanted the park to be listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. In 2008, Band-e Amir was finally declared the country's first National park. Local populations who live off agriculture and fishing, particularly the barbel, a big yellow fish, could greatly benefit from this.
