    In the 1950s, as a gesture of goodwill to the Afghan people, the Soviet Union built the Salang Corridor, a series of 19 galleries and the 1.6 mile Salang Tunnel, that provided travelers protection from the elements. The Salang Corridor transformed the economy by opening the trade route, cutting travel between the regions from 72 hours to 10 and shaving 190 miles off the trip.
