Highest City in the World: La Rinconada, Peru

As we were searching for unusual, remote places on the planet, we ran into Rinconada, said to be the highest city in the world. Located in the Peruvian Andes. at a height of 5,100m (16,732.28 feet) above sea level, La Rinconada is filled with stories that willprobably get you meditating.

“It’s on Earth, but yet not a part of our world”.

Population: 30 000 inhabitants
Economy mostly based on near-by gold mines exploitation;
No running water or sewage system

La Rinconada is not you average tourist city, nor is it a city you would probably like visiting. For hikers, it is a good place to rest while in the Peruvian Andes; for people all over the world it should be an example of surviving in a harsh environment.
