The VUSAF main office is in located in Kabul, the capital of Afghanistan.  

 


Our projects are in the North of Afghanistan. If you travel by road from Kabul, you will pass the Salang River and Salang Pass (tunnel) through the Hindukush Mountains. The River Amu borders with Usbekistan. 

Mazar-e-Sharif which is the capital of
the province of Balkh. Mazar-e-Sharif's most famous place is the Blue Mosque
or Rawza to which many people travel
for Nauruz at the beginning of spring and maybe they go on to see the river Amu at Hairatan.





 


Andkhoi is a small ancient town about 250 km west of Mazar-e-Sharif in the desert surrounded by many villages.
