The Salang tunnel located in Parwan province is a link between northern and southern Afghanistan crossing the Hindukush mountain range under the difficult Salang Pass.

The Salang Tunnel is the only pass going in a north-south direction to remain in use throughout the year.

It is known for a deadly fire which occurred in November 1982, and several avalanche incidents. A series of avalanches led to the deaths of as many as 166 people in February 2010 either as a direct result of the avalanche or through being trapped.
