Mobile Network and Internet Connectivity in Zanskar (2022)

Zanskar valley is the new travel destination this year, people are Travelling to the Zanskar region. The future of Zanskar is bright from a tourism perspective, as govt is building a road network in Zanskar for easy connectivity from Manali to Leh and Manali to Kargil, road construction is going on in full swing.

As Govt is planning to establish many Army camps, and it is going to be the main road route for Ladakh after the Shinkula tunnel.

On Leh Manali Highway we have to cross 4 major mountain passes, which increase travel time and also get shut in bad weather conditions, on another side Zanskar route to Leh can be an all-weather route after the Shinkula Tunnel.

BRO working hard to flatten the surface of the area to make world-class roads, and in another one or two years, you will find butter smooth roads in Zanskar.

Thousands of workers working in Zanskar right now from the different departments, like electricity, roads, and telecom to ensure the connectivity work finish on time.

Due to this JIO has installed towers in the whole of Zanskar Valley.

Mobile and Internet Connectivity in Zanskar

I recently completed my Solo Ride to Zanskar Valley on my Xpulse 200 Bs6, I found JIO 4g in every village and town. I did the route Kargil-Rangdum-Padum-Darcha.

On this route, you will find networks even in a small village like Abran, so Network connectivity is not an issue in Zanskar. If you are traveling to Zanskar make sure you have a JIO Postpaid sim or Jio Prepaid sim from Jammu and Kashmir/Ladakh.

In some places, BSNL also works, but I would suggest you go with JIO sim only.

This post is based on my Travel in May 2022, Internet connectivity in Zanskar may improve in the future, so You may find better connectivity and more network coverage in Zanskar for JIO Sims.
