Hamoun Lake (T) by Zoë Sheng

I squeezed in this “visit” by having more time than expected as I visited Mount Khajeh. Little did I know that the lake is dry in winter and that the road is only a sandy path for 4WD by taking a left turn instead of going up the mountain. You can probably make out the wetland better in summertime. Thus Lake Helmand is not really worth trying to visit. I understand now that the other two parts are north of Zabol and I did not go anywhere up there, with one of the lakes shared with the Afghanistan border I assume it is off-limits anyway, and one completely in Afghanistan?!. Not a very good review, I know, I suppose mainly due to not being accessible. Even if this gets the notch for an inscription I would think a trans-national site is required with the help of Afghanistan.
