That India is a quirky place when it comes to travel and tourism is no news; from a temple where rats are worshipped (Karni Mata Mandir, Rajasthan) and a place known for mass bird suicide (Jatinga, Assam) to the magnetic hill of Ladakh and the living root bridges of Cherrapunjee—India has it all! And if that’s not enough, India scores high, riding the ‘est’ wagon (largest, tallest, highest). Here is a quick view of some of the highest places on the Earth located in the mystic land of India.
Rinchen Cafeteria, highest cafeteria on the Earth
Situated along the famous Khardung La, Rinchen Cafeteria is a major tourist pit stop and why not, for it’s the highest cafeteria in the world! Named after the local war hero and Maha Vir Chakra winner Colonel Chewang Rinchen, this food joint is known for its different flavoured teas and noodles. Imagine being at 18,380 ft above sea level, craving a cup of hot tea and suddenly coming across a cafe that happens to hold such an enviable distinction.
