 Oct 5 2015- The Defence Research and Development Organisation inaugurated an Extreme Altitude Research Centre at Chang La in Jammu and Kashmir at 17,600 ft above main sea level making it the world’s highest terrestrial R&D centre.

It has been established by Defence Institute of High Altitude Research (DIHAR), Leh, a constituent establishment of Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO).
The centre, 75 km off Leh town towards Pangong lake, is poised to be the world’s highest terrestrial R&D centre in the cold desert of Ladakh, where the temperature goes as low as -40 degrees Celsius during extreme winter months in addition with reduced atmospheric pressure and humidity besides high wind velocity and UV radiation.
“A large number of life sciences activities are proposed to be undertaken at this centre including human physiological work, long term conservation of plant genetic resources, designing, testing, validation and demonstration of mobile and portable greenhouses, soil-less micro-farming technologies for fresh food in remote landlocked posts besides conservation and propagation of endangered extreme altitude medicinal plants and others,” said DRDO Chief S Christopher.
