Afghanistan Photography Trip, AdviceWe are a group of friends thinking for an early spring photography trip of around 10 days. Which areas do you recommend to visit taking into account safety considerations. Can we visit Wakhan in March/April, any recommended company/guide. Thanks in advance

1It will be cold in Wakhan in March/April but accessible.
You could try Bamian in Central Afghanistan.
Herat, Mazar and Kabul are also options.
Note that 21st March is Nau Ruz, the Persian new year. Can be great for celebrations, watching the flag raising ceremony, buzkashi, kite fighting and general celebrations around the North and West of Afghanistan. A lot of offices are embassies are shut at this time so plan ahead when it comes to permits and visas.
