Welcome, Mountain Unity is a non-profit organisation which promotes mountain tourism
in NE Afghanistan.
The majestic mountains of north east Afghanistan, have kept the local people safe from
invasion since the days before Alexander the Great. However life in this remote province is
especially hard for its inhabitants. Maternal mortality rates are one of the highest in the
world, and many children die before the age of five due to the extreme poverty. By
co-ordinating and publicising mountain tourism, Mountain Unity aims to provide
sustainable livelihoods for the inhabitants.
