Nuristan is one of the country's most unusual and inaccessible regions. Set in striking mountains near the territory of Kashmir (whose ownership is a matter of hot dispute), this dramatic, forested area is dotted with wooden hillside homes. The Greek god Dionysus figures prominently in Nuristani legend, and the inhabitants were pagan until little more than a century ago. Their languages still vary from valley to valley, and few foreigners have ever seen the region. 125 mi/200 km northeast of Kabul.
