To promote responsible tourism, Telenor also distributed reusable bags to inculcate the habit of keeping the beautiful region clean.

This is the second year in a row that Telenor has organised this event which shows their commitment to the region.

Telenor delivers on its claim of “maidanon se wadiyon tak apka hamsafer” by providing connectivity to not just locals, but also the tourists in the region, so they stay connected with their friends and family even while travelling to the remotest of areas.
