Inside Pakistan’s Smugglers’ Market (near Afghanistan)

I go inside a notorious smugglers’ market famous for black market goods like stolen U.S. Army and NATO gear from Afghanistan. This is Karkhano Market in the Pakistani border city of Peshawar in the province of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. The market is located on the Grand Trunk Road and is at the gateway to the Khyber Pass, which leads to Afghanistan.

The smuggled goods and drugs at this market primarily come from Afghanistan.

Due to the war in Afghanistan finishing and the U.S. Army leaving, the market has dried up of guns, ammo, night-vision goggles, flak jackets, and all other stolen American goods. Market vendors are now trying to find new businesses to fill this gap.

If you’re a foreigner going to this market, I’d suggest taking a Pashto or Urdu-speaking friend as barely anyone speaks English there. It’s also quite dangerous as the surrounding area is a den for drug addicts.
