Pen-and-ink drawing of the Bolan Pass by George Boyd (1800-1850) between 1821 and 1844. This is one of 95 drawings (90 folios), chiefly of landscapes and monuments in the Deccan, West India and Afghanistan.

The Bolan Pass is one of two main routes through the Hindu Kush mountain range from Afghanistan to India (the other being the Khyber Pass). The Bolan is the more southerly of the two passes, situated at the western end of Hindu Kush, and has been followed by trading caravans since ancient times; it is also the most obvious route for an invader from Persia (modern-day Iran) to the Indian plains.
