The five iron quarries of Asnawa are located to the south-east of Penjween town. A difficult unpaved road climbs through the Bilkian valley leads to the area of the iron ore which can be visited only by a four-wheel drive vehicle. The aria is about 1350 meters high in elevation and takes only half an hour from Penjween to reach to the quarries. The areas surrounding the road and the quarries are dangerous as being full of remnants of weapons especially mine fields and different kinds of unexploded shells.</p> Sherwan Kafoor ##submission.copyrightStatement## Thu, 13 Sep 2018 00:00:00 +0300
