Bengaluru: A Bengaluru student has managed book a taxi to the world’s most notorious nation with only a click. Evaluated cost of the round trip was Rs. 1.4 lakh. Maybe this is a small amount to pay for the most difficult to reach place on earth.

On Saturday night, 21-year-old Prashant Shahi figured out how to a book a taxi rides through Ola from his home in Bengaluru to South Pyongang, North Korea. The student says such transaction was made only by a chance.

Prashanth speaking to the media said “North Korea had been slanting everywhere throughout the news… I once opened the Ola application rather than Google Maps to check North Korea’s street availability to South Korea. There, I saw was the choice for booking a taxicab. I was shocked to see it possible myself,” 

As per screen shots shared to the media, the taxicab organization affirmed the ride and even sent driver points of interest to the rider. The estimated charge for the five day road trip was an astounding Rs. 1,49,088.

When others attempted, they could book an outstation taxicab by dropping the location stick in North Korea or Australia.

This isn’t the first run time a technical glitch has entertained Ola taxi riders. A year ago, a Mumbai man was erroneously charged 149 crore for a one minute ride.
