Afghanistan borders Uzbekistan , Tajikistan and China to the north, Pakistan to the east and south, Iran to the west and Turkmenistan to the northwest.

The central Hindu Kush, a glacial high mountain range, divides Afghanistan into a north and a south region. In the east it reaches summits from 5000 to over 7000 m above sea level (Nowshak: 7485 m), to the west it fans out into several lower mountain ranges, which are placed on the central highlands of Afghanistan. In the west and south of the country, these mountain ranges gradually merge into an inland highland with deserts and steppes. Extensive salt marshes extend in the border region with Iran. The foothills of the Pamir Mountains protrude into the northeast of Afghanistan.

The southeastern foothills of the Hindu Kush in the Pakistani-Afghan border area with the Khyber Pass are still difficult to access. A narrow wedge of the inland highlands slides between these and the central Afghan highlands from the south. It extends as far as Kabul and is characterized by steppe-like high valleys with narrow, parallel mountain ranges. In the north the mountain ranges of the Hindu Kush fall abruptly into a deep strip of land with clay and Lösssteppen and sandy deserts to Amudarja from.

The crystalline central zone of the Hindu Kush, a young fold mountain range, is made up of mountainous lands made up of Triassic and Eocene sedimentary rocks, which plunge to the north under the Quaternary sediments of the Turan lowlands and to the south under the sands and gravel of the Helmand Basin. Afghanistan is in an area with frequent major earthquakes.

The high mountain character of the country with often gorge-like cut valleys represents a natural obstacle to the development and economic development. The basin landscapes surrounded by mountains (Kabul, Jalalabad) and basin-like valleys (Bamian, Andarab) are the most important settlement areas. Characteristic of the agriculturally used land are small, parceled out fields and irrigation channels lined with bushes and trees. Their fresh green contrasts sharply with the undeveloped land. The small, densely populated irrigation oases of the valleys and basins are juxtaposed with the extensively used summer pastures of the mountains and the winter pastures of the lower plains in the north, west and south.

The largest rivers come from the central highlands, especially the Kuh-e Baba. The Kabul flows east into the Indus. The Hari Rud supplies the Herat oasis with water and seeps into the Iranian-Afghan border area. Most of the other rivers, the largest being the Helmand , flow to the southwest and seep into the salt marshes of Sistan. The Amu Darya or its source river Pyanj , which has its source in the Wachan Corridor , forms the border with Tajikistan and Uzbekistan for long stretches. Most rivers only have seasonal water.

Climate and vegetation

With mean summer temperatures of 30 ° C and mean winter temperatures of 2 ° C in the north and 7 ° C in the south, the climate is continental; the extremes are 40 ° C in July and −25 ° C in January. The summers are dry, in the winter half-year the low and very fluctuating precipitation decreases towards the southwest (Kandahar 200 mm, Farah in the southwest 90 mm precipitation annually). Such climatic conditions gave rise to steppe vegetation in different forms. The natural woody corridors of the heavily irrigated mountains (Faisabad over 500 mm of precipitation annually) were largely destroyed by humans. Only in the east, where the influence of the South Asian summer monsoon noticeable, significant forest stands were preserved, which, however, were heavily felled from the 1990s onwards. The formerly rich population of wild animals (e.g. leopards , bears) was greatly reduced by the war. Deforestation and frequent droughts and improper irrigation lead to increased desertification. Improper watering makes the soil too salty. The high mountain glaciers are also shrinking rapidly as a result of global warming. Check harvardshoes to see Asia Climate.
