Travels and Maps – Cairo to Kathmandu

It’s almost impossible to imagine travelling through countries like Iran, the Northwest Frontier Province of Pakistan, parts of Eastern Turkey, Syria and even parts of Egypt today. However, the mid 90s saw a brief hiatus in political unrest and hostilities in many parts of the region, and I was able to travel from Cairo to Kathmandu in relative safety. Here’s a map of the journey, with some of the most interesting places highlight – Persepolis in Iran, Chitral and the Khyber Pass between Pakistan and Afghanistan, Nemrut Dag and Dogubayzit in Turkey, and the deserted ancient city of Fatehpur Sikri in India.
