Band-E-Amir National Park
Band-e Amir Lakes
The pools of Band-e Amir are a staggeringly shocking sight. Six dark blue lakes abruptly seem like shining gems amidst the fruitless dim no man's land of Central Afghanistan that extends as far the eye can see. The lakes' waters are made out of a high mineral substance, which is in charge of the dark blue shade of the lakes.
Today, the lakes are a most loved goal for day outings, and they ooze a frequently happy and practically merry climate – an irregularity in Afghanistan, which makes the lakes prominent among local people and expats alike. This climate at the lakes is a special notice of the days when Afghanistan was immovably put on the vacationer map, as the nation was a piece of the celebrated Hippie Trail from Istanbul to Northern India.
Travertine dividers between and around the lakes have made characteristic dams, that store the water, which streams from the breaks and crevices of the encompassing rocks. Around the shore of the lake Band-e Haibat the travertine dividers achieve a stature of twelve meters, making an otherworldy impact of a type of common endlessness pool. The overspilling water of the lake makes little cascades along the external edge of the travertine dividers.
