Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Limited (HPCL) has set up a fuel pump on the world’s highest motorable road.
Located at Leh-Khardung-La road, this new petrol pump will make refueling a bit more convenient to the locals as well as tourists. At an altitude of 15,300 feet above sea level, this KSP (Kerb Side Pump) is probably the highest petrol dispensing facility in the world.
Till now, only 60 such KSPs have been installed while the plan is to increase this number up to 125 KSPs.
If you’re traveling to Leh for the first time, such initiatives of increasing the availability of fuel will surely help.
