After traveling for 40 km from Kaza, travelers will arrive at the Hikkim Village- the village with the highest post office in the world. An interesting day-trip beckons for travelers who love to achieve milestones on their vacations. One such milestone or a bucket list item they can strike off is to send a postcard to their loved ones from 14,400 feet via a post office.

A quaint village where homes are build with stone and mud, and Buddhist prayer flags fluttering with the wind outside all of the houses. The Hikkim village also has a Monastery for the monks and a government funded school that teaches pupils till 8th grade.
