They Khyber Pass

Khyber Pass is a famous historical pass. It is fifty kilometres long narrow mountain valley. It is the only route which connects Pakistan to Afghanistan and other countries beyond it. Many conquerors attacked South Asia by crossing it. It has also been a famous trade route. Previously camel caravans passed and carried various articles from sub-continent to Afghanistan and brought back some goods. Now Lorries, trucks and other means of transport have taken place of camel caravans.

Bilal and his friends made a trip to Khyber Pass in last summer. They started early in the morning by bus. They stopped at Jamrod of obtaining permit. After covering about thirty Kilometre they reached Landikotal the highest place along the pass. There they made brief stop and ate Tikkas and Chapli Kababs. After it they covered another twenty Kilometres distance down wards to Torkham the border between Pakistan and Afghanistan. They were welcomed by the Soldiers guarding the frontiers. The road from Peshawar to Landikotal is very fine but zigzag. There are very beautiful mountainous sceneries also. They boys enjoyed the journey along the pass and found it very informative.
