The K2 Base camp area of Concordia now has a 4G BTS – Base Transceiver Station installed.

The site named as Ali Sadpara in the memory of late mountaineer, will enable the mountaineers and trekkers to receive better communication facilities during expeditions.

Made operational by the SCO-Special Communication Organisation, the mobile coverage and internet access will prove to be pivotal for mountaineers and trekking groups to stay connected with their families and assist in emergency situations. It will also help promote adventure tourism and weather monitoring.
