Tourist-Ready Connectivity

Given Zanskar's extreme winter conditions, rendering it nearly uninhabitable for six months of the year, the region becomes a popular tourist destination during its peak travel season, particularly for the famous 'Chadar Trek' along the frozen Zanskar River. In such remote locations, network connectivity is crucial for safety during emergencies.

Airtel says its 5G service is now operational across various locations, including Rangdrum, Phey Thang Zanskar, Sani Monastery, Kisherak Rd Padum, Techa Khasar, and Karsha, among others.
