The light at the end of the tunnel

Strategically located in the jagged highlands, the tunnel was originally built to handle a peak of a thousand cars a day. Now, four to five times that many pass through in a 24-hour period. Although other routes exist, the Salang Pass is the only safe route that stays open year-round, thanks to coalition troops who secure the stretch.
