The Best Remote Bars Around the World

5. The Irish Pub

Where it is: Namche Bazaar, Nepal

Why it’s awesome: Why climb a barstool in a village hidden high 
in the Himalayas? Because it’s there! Despite 
an absence of roads, the Nepalese proprietor, knowing that Irish bars are on-brand for boozy fun, hired porters to lug shamrock kitsch up to the village’s 11,000-foot altitude. All so you can munch a yak burger while watching sherpas shoot pool and international climbers en route to Everest gulp what could be their last shots of Jameson.

What to drink: Though the “Donkey Piss” cocktail is tempting, an Irish bar must pour a perfect pint of Guinness, even if it has to be imported via Kathmandu.

6. The Thirsty Camel

Where it is: Gobi Desert, Mongolia

Why it’s awesome: Three Camels Lodge offers plenty of brag-worthy forays into the vast Gobi Desert that swallows it, from nomadic archery to digging for dinosaur bones. Between these dusty adventures and falling into a well-appointed yurt, unwind back at The Thirsty Camel. The elegantly rustic space, constructed of stone and exposed wood beams, is both open and intimate, making it easy to strike up conversations, or perhaps to wager on a round of shagai, the dice-like Mongolian game played with goat ankle bones.

What to drink: Astonishingly, in the middle of freaking nowhere, is a world-class collection of whiskeys. Just don’t slip any to the actual Bactrian camels. Camels are mean drunks.
