“The amazing Post office - Highest in the world”
Reviewed July 28, 2012

The amazing thing that a post office functions at such an altitude and caters to such an inhospitable and huge terrain. Hats off to the Indian Postal Services. They could possibly keep it in a more traditional way.

“Old building”
Reviewed June 28, 2012

Highly overrated. Nothing much to talk about, except an old post office. No need to make a special stop for this.

There are many other sight-seeing options nearby. Try the gompas, mosques, and monastries

“Not like the U.S.”
Reviewed December 3, 2011

If you are expecting a U.S. esque post office you will not find it here or anywhere in India for that matter. In some aspects the country moves at a slower pace, with the post moving at a slower pace, and if you really desire to immerse yourself in India you have to understand that everything does not go at the speed of light a la the U.S. Workers may be eating right in front of you, while you sit in a chair waiting for post on one letter, but that is the custom and it is all part of the experience. I promise everything will be sent and delivered, just a bit slower :)
