Tourism in Bamiyan takes a backseat due to security risk on roads

Published on : Thursday, June 29, 2017

Tourism in BamiyanIn Bamiyan, one of the principal reasons for a dip in tourism is the decline in security in the neighboring provinces, especially along the highways.

Bamiyan, which is known as the safe haven of the country, has been hard hit by the recent increase in insecurity in neighboring provinces. The key highways leading to its center are no longer secure. This has affected both domestic and foreign tourism in the province.


The Bamiyan Historic Preservation of Information and Culture Directorate said that another reason was the high price of an airline ticket from Kabul to Bamiyan. The average $100 USD for a one-way ticket was not affordable for most domestic travelers.


The directorate also stated that the high unemployment rate in the country and people with less disposable cash were also preventing Afghans from traveling.
