Bagh-e Babur, Kabul Province

Nature / Park
Enjoy a peaceful walk through Bagh-e Babur--the blooming gardens that contradict the dusty appearance of the surrounding city. Established in the 16th century, the gardens contain the tomb of King Babur, the founder of this lush complex. Roses, wild cherries, and cypresses represent only a portion of what you can see here. Many festivals take place within the park, but you can also take a stroll, have a picnic, or read a book on the lawn. Go to the highest point of the gardens for a full view of the city. Work out when and for how long to visit Bagh-e Babur and other Kabul attractions using our handy Kabul travel itinerary planner.

Where to stay in Kabul

Accommodations in Kabul run on the expensive side, since security presents a particular concern. Short-term visitors may opt for a hotel, but if you're staying for longer, the city's many guesthouses might provide a more comfortable option. Luxury establishments cater to international visitors with clean, modern rooms, swanky decor, and lavish amenities including onsite restaurants, swimming pools, and fitness centers. Mid-range hotels and guesthouses provide basic rooms, some with Wi-Fi, air-conditioning, and other services. Budget guesthouses offer shared bathrooms. Most lodgings cluster in the city center, with access to attractions and plenty of parks, while just a few hotels lie farther out to the west.
