Bremen Hindu Kush Expedition. Five Germans from Bremen made a modest expedition into the Hindu Kush. They drove from Germany to 50 miles beyond Kabul, where they organized a pack train to take them 100 miles farther. They made the first ascent of a peak which they measured by aneroid as 20,506 feet and which they called Koh-i-Chrebek (Snowbird Peak). It is not clear exactly where they were climbing.
