Travel to Afghanistan with caution. Afghanistan is a nation that endured over thirty years of war recently, expect a certain degree of dilapidation.
The best way to get in is via Kabul International Airport as Charikar is only 69 miles north of the capital. The drive is only slightly over an hour. Now that although these northern areas are usually more stable than the Pashtun tribal regions to the South & East, always be cautious when driving on Afghan highways. Since you are going to near Bagram Air Base on your way there DO NOT drive too close to Military convoys, or else they may assume you are hostile towards them. During your drive you shall pass a large portion of the Afghan heartland, with agrarian plains, valleys, and rivers.
Driving and walking are the primary ways of travel. It is recommended to avoid traveling outside alone, always try to have someone beside you.
