Hi, I'm aware there's phone reception in the khumbu but can anyone confirm if this is the case for Cholatse BC (south side) and upper camps?

Also is there 3/4G for weather forecasting?

thanks in advance

I don't remember there being mobile phone reception at Cholatse base camp in 2017, but maybe things have changed in the last few years!

In reply to Rikardo: No phone signals in most places in upper Khumbu after Namche. None at Cholatse BC or higher. Nearest connection is internet via Everest Link, the Khumbu internet system offered by most lodges.

Thanks, I'm trying to gauge if i need to take a garmin in reach as I had phone reception on ama dablam in 2013 throughout the upper camps. It was a bit sketchy at BC but i suppose Cholatse is quite far up a different valley system in dead ground from Namche.
