Water Body
Let your inner adventurer shine at Qargha Lake, 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. To visit Qargha Lake on your holiday in Kabul, and find out what else Kabul has to offer, use our Kabul travel itinerary maker.

  • A freshwater lake in outskirts of Kabul with mounts surrounding the lake. A nice hike to one of the mountain and doing meditation session boosts your energy level for a month.  more »
  • It is a bit far from the city, but well worth the visit, excellent restaurant with top food and a lake view are very nice.  more »
  • Qargha Lake has a nice view and there are many restaurants nearby. It is very crowded on Fridays, rest of the week days its normal. Swimming in the lake is usually risky and not recommended.  more »
