Is there any Cellular service and wi-fi facility for tourists in Ladakh?
Yes there are cellular services in Leh Ladakh, however Prepaid mobile phones do not work in Leh. We recommend getting a postpaid connection before venturing out. Also, connectivity is poor and you may not always get a signal, especially while you are on excursions to places such as Nubra Valley or Pangong Tso. However, in case you need to connect to someone urgently, the PCO booths in Leh market can save the day for you.
If we talk about wi-fi facility, few hotels and cafes offer Wi-Fi connectivity in Leh but it’s uncertain. Connections are slow and go down for long hours. However, if you are in dire need to be online, there are a number of internet cafes in the main market you can use. Again, the connection at these cafes is a bit on the slower side.
