Bamyan Improves As Tourist Attraction

The city of Bamyan in Afghanistan is making strides toward becoming a popular tourist destination, despite the lack of adequate infrastructure. The central region of Bamiyan in Afghanistan has been progressively recuperating from the wreckage of the war in order to attract tourists, but there is a severe lack of lodgings, which has created a new challenge.

Over the course of the last three months, Bamiyan has welcomed more than 60,000 visitors from across the world. In recent days, there has been an increase in the number of visitors, with up to 600 tourists visiting the region of the gigantic Buddhas every single day, according to Mawlawi Saifurahman Mohammadi, the provincial director of information and culture.

According to Mohammadi, the number of tourists who visited Bamiyan each day surpassed 1,000 during the Eid al-Adha festival, which lasted for three days and concluded on Monday.

Bamiyan province, which used to be a popular tourist destination nearly half a century ago due to its pleasant weather, beautiful landscape, the Band-e-Amir lates, historical sites, and, most importantly, the giant Buddhas, has been working hard to reclaim its title as a popular tourist destination with the return of peace in the region. Bamiyan province boasts the Band-e-Amir lates, which are a mountain range that is home to ancient Buddhist cave paintings.

However, the hilly region is not yet prepared to host tourists and visitors since there are only a limited number of hotels and rest homes available for guests.

According to Abdul Shah, who just returned from a trip to Bamiyan, a significant number of visitors were compelled to sleep in their vehicles or outside owing to a lack of available lodgings over the previous week.

The young woman, who is 23 years old and traveled here from the city of Mazar-i-Sharif in the north of Afghanistan with her fiancé, bemoaned the fact that the province’s lack of adequate amenities may be a barrier to the expansion of the tourist business there.

According to Sayed Ismael, an official of the national park, up to 500 automobiles and other vehicles carry visitors to the scenic lakes of Band-e-Amir every single day, and the national park has been visited by around 40,000 people, including those from other countries.

Ismael stated. Since the holiday of Eid al-Fitr started at the beginning of May, around 40,000 visitors have visited the Band-e-Amir lakes, and every day we have thousands of guests here.

Sayed Milad, another guest at Band-e-Amir, shared his delight at having the opportunity to go to Bamiyan with us. “I used to swim here and really enjoyed the pure water and fresh air here,” he added. “I used to come here all the time.”

“I really love the green and friendly atmosphere in a peaceful environment while visiting many natural landscapes and historical monuments,” said Zahra from Kabul, adding that the tourism industry will not develop unless the authorities build facilities to accommodate tourists. “I really love the green and friendly atmosphere in a peaceful environment while visiting many natural landscapes and historical monuments,” said Zahra from Kabul.
