" Some mountaineers are proud of having done all their climbs without bivouac. How much they have missed ! And the same applies to those who enjoy only rock climbing, or only the ice climbs, onyl the ridges or faces. We should refuse none of the thousands and one joys that the mountains offer us at every turn. We should brush nothing aside, set no restrictions. We should experience hunger and thirst, be able to go fast, but also to go slowly and to contemplate." -Gaston R-ffat (1921-985).

Well there is a Telephone / Mobile tower setup at Kalapatthar , ( approx. 17000 feet ) , a little ahead of Gorakhshep ( Everest Base camp trek, Nepal) ! Does not qualify as an exchange really , but you do get good coverage and internet connectivity .
