" To those who have struggled with them, the mountains reveal beauties that they will not disclose to those who make no effort. That is the reward the mountains give to effort. And it is because they have so much to give and give it so lavishly to those who will wrestle with them that men love the mountains and go back to them again and again. The mountains reserve their choice gifts for those who stand upon their summits." - Sir Francis Younghusband

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 .
