Gaststube – Chacaltaya, Bolivia

At 5,300 metres above sea level, Chacaltaya was once the world’s highest ski resort. Unsurprisingly, it garners a number of other “world’s highest” records without much extra effort.

One of these is the world’s highest restaurant (photograped, above, by jfjwak), although we also thought world’s highest flushable toilet in a ski resort was pretty impressive too.

Tea House – Everest, Nepal

The area around the Everest Base Camp boasts a number of small tea houses and modest restaurants. So even there, more than 5,000 metres above the rest of the world, you can still browse different menus and be picky about where you’re going to eat.

At.mosphere – Dubai, UAE

Technically not the third-highest restaurant in the world, but it is the one most guaranteed to make you throw up your lunch if you don’t have a head for heights.

Just looking at the Burj Khalifa from the ground is a sweat-inducing experience for most people, but those who can stomach sitting at a sheer 422 metres will be rewarded with some supremely fine dining.
