There are so many, Valmiki ramayan even have references of African countries like Ghana and Male, But youmight be talking abt Afghanistan, which was known as Gandhar , Vhalik was the name of Balakh and Bukhara, Parshupuri was name of Persia or Iran, Kapishey was name of Kabul, grape wine from Kabul grapes was known as "Kapisheyi" , china was known to ancient Indians and thats why silk was called as "Chinanshuk"
