Let your inner adventurer shine at Qargha Reservoir, where your only obligation is to have fun. Built in 1933, a dam stands 30 m (98 ft) tall here, throwing shade on the surrounding vegetation. The body of water the dam creates provides the perfect spot for recreational activities, so you can go surfing, swimming, or boating during your visit. You can also pack a picnic and kick back on the shore or go golfing at a nearby course. See Qargha Reservoir and all Kabul has to offer by arranging your trip with our Kabul road trip app.
