A team of researchers traveled to the highest city in the world

They're about to go the world's highest city, at 5,300 meters above sea level, to better understand the limits of human body adaptation to the lack of oxygen. This is Expédition 5300 in La Rinconada, Peru.

    There are rumors that is a destination for human traffick. Many girls are abducted and taken there for sexual exploitation

    La Rinconada is actually the highest place on earth with permanent human settlement. I wish the researchers all the best for their work at this altitude where during a long permanence high altitude deterioration occurs.

    Currently, I am hanging out in the Andes Mountains at 8,500 ft. I noticed the fatigue, the shortness of breath and getting less sleep. I refuse to let it bother me. This is my old age adventure for now and I love the mountains. Learning Spanish is the greater challenge. LOL

    People living in this extreme are not actually commoners like us. They may have DNA of Yeti descendent in them or is it the gold that making everything possible here. World is full of wonders in some cases. I however loved it and wish to be a member of this settlers one day.
