Notes on the Geography of Pakistan: Landi Kotal
A look at the Khyber Pass and the town on the Pakistani side of it.
Entrance to the Khyber Pass from Peshawar.
There used to be a railway through to Kabul.
The town of Landi Kotal is close to the border.
In the money-changers' bazaar.
Was that "Dallas" or "dollars"? Hard to say.
"What is it you want?"
At Mardan, 40 miles east of Peshawar, there's a monument to one British force that was annihilated across the border.
The inscription on that monument.
