Highest military base
Siachen Glacier
India (Siachen Glacier,Kashmir)
The world's highest military base belongs to India and is at a height of approximately 6,000 m (19,685 ft) on the Siachen Glacier in the state of Kashmir. Troops are regularly deployed to 6,700 m (21,981 ft) on the glacier during the on-going conflict with Pakistan over the state of Kashmir. As a result, the glacier is often refered to as the world's highest battlefield, however this is a casual term, as the countries are not officially at war. Another high base is at 4,350 m (14,271 ft) in Putre, Lauca National Park, Chile.
