Asia, Afghanistan, Restrictions on Expeditions in Afghanistan

Restrictions on Expeditions in Afghanistan. Friedrich Weber of Mark- toberdorf, Germany informs us that the Afghan government is now collecting duty on food imported amounting to one to two dollars per kilo. Porter fees are very high; they had to pay $16 per day for each porter for the 1 ½-day pack from Qazi Deh to the Noshaq Base Camp.
