LEH, India – Amazon began offering doorstep delivery to its customers to the top of the world. Leh, the highest point in the world now started receiving its orders from e-commerce site Amazon with the help of Incredible Himalayas.

A plane carrying 16 to 21 bags from Amazon arrives from Delhi which then delivered with the help of its local partner, Incredible Himalayas.

Leh is geographically located to near to Tibet with a population of 30,000 residents. The couriers usually use motorcycles and scooter to deliver their packages. During winter they use four-wheel vehicles to deliver due to heavy winter.

Amazon has monks and local soldiers as their big customers who regularly order things as per their need. This great step by Amazon is part of winning the Indian battleground with Flipkart. Amazon will make less profit out its customers from Leh, as it is more expensive to deliver via planes. But the company will compensate its expenses from the profit made from dense urban areas of Mumbai and Delhi.
