Kunar Valley facts for kids

Kids Encyclopedia Facts

Kunar Valley is a valley in Afghanistan and Pakistan. In Afghanistan the length of the valley is almost entirely narrow with steep and rugged mountains on both sides. The center of the valley is occupied by the Kunar River flowing south where it joins the Kabul River.

Farmers grow food crops to feed themselves and their families, and do goat-herding. There are limited and small forested areas in some side valleys but more than 95% of the valley has been deforested.

In limited areas at higher elevations there are sustained grassy mountain meadows. The Kunar Valley is a arid, rocky, steep landscape with a fast-moving muddy river as its primary geographic feature.
