Darra Adam Khel

Overview

Introduction

A memorable town created some 150 years ago near the border with Afghanistan, Darra has always had a frontier atmosphere. Under a deal struck with the British colonial rulers, local residents were allowed to manufacture weaponry at Darra in exchange for guarding the Khyber Pass railway. Subsequent Pakistani governments have had no jurisdiction in the area, so the trade in arms flourishes, and it is correspondingly extremely dangerous. Don't go there. 100 mi/160 km west of Islamabad.
