Map of Afghanistan

The capital of Afghanistan is Kabul. Flights to Afghanistan usually go to Kabul. Kabul is the largest city of the country, others are Herat, Kandahar, Mazar-e Sharif and Kondoz. Afghanistan is a country of many mountains, foothills of the Himalaya in the east of the country arise to more than 7000 m altitude.
Afghanistan is one of the poorest and less developed countries of the world, a central administration of the large country has always been a difficult task. Soviet occupation, Taliban radical Islamic government and US actions in Afghanistan (and Guantánamo) have been far away from repecting human rights of the Afghan people.
Poshto/Pashtu and Dari are the official languages of the countriy, for there are several more native languages spoken. Our map shows that the names are spelled in Arabic script.
We would appreciate more detailed information, also about flights or individual tours to Afghanistan. Though tourism is not really of importance in this country, where travelling is still quite dangerous.

This is our Map of the World with original scripts (original size 70 x 100 cm), from which the detailed map shown above has been cut out. The numbers of city inhabitants and vegetational zones were researched by hand for every country, by using the sources listed below. This procedure prevented the map from containing traditional errors provoked by simply copying such information from previous maps.

The map can be ordered for 11.50 Euros (+ postage and packing) at www.wissenladen.de.

 

Sources on which the information contained in this map is based:

 

The vegetational base map was aligned with satellite pictures from Google Earth.

The official names of the countries are quite well researched at www.geonames.de.

Also here you can find information on the geography of many countries: www.geographixx.de.

The numbers of inhabitants of the cities were taken from www.citypopulation.de.

And the mountain peak altitudes were largely derived form www.peakbagger.com.
