Band e Amir:

In the middle of the Hazarajat in the central Hindu Kush Mountains, are the legendary lakes of Band e Amir. Band e Amir was declared as a national park, the first in Afghanistan in 1973, although it does not have a legal status. There are six stunningly beautiful lakes surrounded by magenta and grey rock walls which make a beautiful and unforgettable contrast. Just 75 km from Bamiyan, the lakes of the Band e Amir Valley are considered to be one of the wonders of the country. The strikingly clear waters come as a shock to the mind in the middle of this barren and rocky desert landscape. There is surprisingly a large variety of animals here including wolves, foxes, wild sheep, hares and Makhor goats along with large yellow fish. You will see a lot of donkeys and Mules in this area, since they are commonly used for transportation.
