National bank of Pakistan has again made Pakistan proud by installing the world’s highest automated teller machine (ATM) at 16007 above sea level at Khunjerab pass, commonly known as Pak China border.
Khunjerab Pass the Pakistan/china wall is located in the Karakoram Mountains. It is inside the northern border of Pakistan’s Gilgit–Baltistan Hunza, the Nagar District on the southwest edge of the Xinjiang region of China.

Let’s imagine traveling in the lofty snowcapped mountains amidst Pak china border at the elevation of 16007 meters and suddenly running out of cash so, there is nothing to worry about because world’s highest ATM is there at your service.
Installation of the ATM was initiated after getting enough information of height and other requirements from Guinness book of world records It’s no hard to imagine that this task must have been a really challenging one to pursue in the harsh climate of Khunjerab pass.
The atm is powered by solar energy and special care has been taken of its supervision by NBP. It is regulated by the NBPs nearest branch. The ATM doesn’t only allow cash withdrawal, but it also provides services like digital bills payment and funds transfer. NBP has made sure that the ATM works well even in harsh winters of Khunjerab. Technical issues and availability of cash have also been taken care of. Moreover, it has been observed that this ATM has not only created ease for the tourists and travelers but for the locals as well.
In a nutshell, installation of the highest ATM in the world in Pakistan is a commendable initiative of NBP which has not only bagged a Guinness book of the world record for Pakistan but also aims at facilitating trade, tourism, and locality in the region.
