Somewhere on the border of China and Pakistan there is an interesting place where adventurers and video bloggers often climb in. There is The highest-rise ATM in the world of the National Bank of Pakistan. Find him possible at an altitude of 4693 meters.

ATM - the invention is not new for a long time, but to see it literally on top of the mountain - a real curiosity. Yes, take advantage this ATM is possible while hiking in the snow-capped mountains of Pakistan. Its location is on the Khunjerab mountain pass in the northern Pakistani province of Gilgit-Baltistan, near the border between China and Pakistan. It is the world's tallest full-featured ATM confirmed by the Guinness Book of Records.

A feature of the ATM is that it works on solar and wind energy. It was installed here by the National Bank of Pakistan (NBP) in 2016, which was a rather difficult task, which required the bank about four months. ATM maintenance and replenishment cash is also problematic - and the nearest bank is at a distance as much as 82 kilometers. Local managers have to overcome strong winds, bad weather, frequent landslides and dangerous mountain passes to to get to the device - the road to it usually takes them 2-2.5 hours.

Although the ATM is not particularly busy due to its unusual location, it has "regular users". These are the border guards who collect their wages, a small number of local residents, and those few people who cross the border through the pass. Estimated bank, every couple of weeks from 4 to 5 million are withdrawn from the machine rupees.
