The highest mobile tower in Eastern Ladakh at an altitude of 16,000 feet has been operationalised on 26 June 2015 in a joint effort by public sector telecom services provider Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) and the Indian Army.
The tower provides a vital communication link to one of the remotest locations of Eastern Ladakh at Chongtash. 
An official press release said the tower had been established with assistance from the Indian Army’s Trishul Signallers in terms of transportation, setting up and rearward connectivity.  
"The Indian Army, with this effort, continues to contribute towards development of communication infrastructure for benefit of the local population of Ladakh," it added.
