We recommend to either carry cash or withdraw at Dehradun as there are hardly any ATMs in Sankri or post that.

Mussoorie and Nainbagh, on the way to Purola, are the last places where you will find an ATM.

Mobile Connectivity

You can get pretty fair connectivity on BSNL sims, Other connections are shaky and won’t work properly.

Purola is the last place before the trek where you’re likely to get a stable mobile signal. This is about an hour and a half before Naitwar, the base camp.
