The Kunar River is seen from above, on the way to Asadabad from Jalalabad, in Kunar province, Afghanistan on Dec. 17, 2009. The area makes up a fraction of the Hindu Kush, a 500-mile mountain range spanning between north-western Pakistan and eastern and central Afghanistan. For centuries, its barren and jagged mountain ranges have been likened to a graveyard for invading armies. Extreme climatic conditions, sparse roads and impassible terrain make combat a grueling feat.
