Hikkim Post Office

Post in Hikkim

Hikkim's small cluster of houses hides what is locally claimed to be the world's highest post office, 4440m above sea level. Some spoilsports say the post office at Everest Base Camp in Tibet is higher (5200m), but that doesn't stop gaggles of tourists traipsing down dusty paths between the village houses to get their mail hand-stamped.

Buy postcards and stamps from the little cafe across the yard and get them hand-stamped here.
