Thank you Henry Sir...!!Now a days there are many cameras available (DSLR/mirror-less) in the market with WiFi built-in. You can use appropriate app on your mobile phone to compose and trigger the camera.
Also, if you are buying Nikon DSLR like 3xxx, 5xxx, or 7xxx series camera, you can auto-focus and trigger the shutter with an cheap wireless remote in your hands.
these wirless remote must be having some range till where they work... any idea on that Sir..!!
cause for taking action shot one must be bit far from the camera... so that the background also comes..!!
regarding Wi- fi I don't know how much it will be useful in LADAKH...!!
