The video started with him taking a flight, and then a car to reach there. In the caption, he stated that it took him 4 flights, 23 hours of insane driving through uncharted terrain, rocks, water bodies, valleys, and a 9 KM tunnel to reach the place.

The post office in Hikkim village is one of the highest in the world, located at an elevation of 4,400 metres (14,400 feet). Without a doubt, the post office is situated at the highest elevation in India. Small towns in this remote area are linked to the outside world by this post office and it sends and receives postal mail. It also serves as a savings bank where residents of the village can make deposits and withdrawals. To send their letters from the highest post office on Earth, travellers journey all the way to Hikkim village.

Since the beginning of the service in 1983, Rinchen Chhering has served as postmaster. The mail is delivered on foot to Kaza. Due to the amount of snowfall during the winter, this post office is closed.
