Taken during my days as an tour leader on the Overland route between Kathmandu & London. This is the small town of Jamrud which is regarded as the gateway to the Khyber Pass. Even though the Soviets had invaded Afghanistan, we still had access to the villages of the Khyber Pass as far as the border with Afghanistan. A year or so later, access was restricted. This was an interesting area. Photo was taken on Kodachrome 25ASA - now scanned & digitised, using Pentax K-1000 SLR

Hello Neil, You were already in 1981 a tour leader? I would love to be in this tour when there were such places visited. Excellent quality of this very old picture. Interesting scene. You were lucky tom visit the area when it was possible.
Warm regrads MAlgo

It's nice to see one of your oldies again. I think this very conservative area has not changed drastically since 1981. The many typical details are delightful and the colours are well kept.
