Cellular service for tourists

Prepaid mobile phones do not work in Leh. We recommend getting a postpaid connection before venturing to the “roof of the world”. 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 Lake. However, in case you need to connect to someone urgently, the PCO booths in Leh market can save the day for you.
