Livein - That is a very good idea and I am relieved to hear that land grabbing is not of much concern. Please do tell me how to contact you.

Dilliwali- mussoorie and almora are really very good options but I am afraid with this budget of mine will I be able to get what I am looking for. Please let me know how can I contact you, coz i have lot of post in which you have mentioned that you have spent lot of your time in and around mussoorie..!!

I don't mean the towns themselves - as livin has emphasised you will have to look outside. That's where you will find cheaper land. But travel around you must.

I really don't have any specific info to give you on where exactly you could buy in any part of UA. For now let me say that if you are going Mussoorie way any time, we'll be in contact then .
I can though suggest to try contacting K S Chauhan who lives at Sainji, which is near Kempty Falls - http://gems-school.org/
(Read the Who Are We section for a better idea)

No they're not, on the whole an ugly environment choked up for a good part of the year by holiday-makers and lots of hassle with water and i can't see the great advantages really.

Don't over-estimate that it's a great quality of life, nor under-estimate the wonderful benefits of a more distant location upon a young mind, where the education is no less yet the environment so far superior in so many ways.
Vsat is not that expensive these days.

A closer perusal of the concerned posts will reveal that nobody was talking of staying in the towns, rather in the vicinity.
That water supply has to be assured before moving anywhere is a given.

How about - proximity to decent English medium schools.

Can't say specifically about NT, but in recent years construction has come up at Mahragaon, which is close to Bhawali and on the way to Sattal. Again it would be a matter of making a trip and investigating.

You know all the children of friends and acquaintances whose kids went to the Convent school in Uttarkashi, are so polite and bright with lovely English and the girls so confident too.. like a centre of excellence in a remote area.

We could not have shifted our son who was at a DPS to a lesser entity. Thankfully the Uttarkashi school existed and although he had to change streams it was, a blossoming for him, therefore we could shift here.

Paleface,

Thank you very much for breaking the ice.
There is lot of notion and misconception about the remote areas, therefore your experience is coming handy to us.

Thank you once again.

Vinod

It's no easy thing to shift and set-up in remoter places, but that's not a barrier to those that really know they want to be more isolated.

That, for the majority of folks becomes their problem. One really has to know the answer in advance.. Do I, do we, want this? Can I/we handle it?

Nobody can rewind a life but for sure i would have shifted to the hills earlier and not lived thirteen years on the plains. But then or now i have no young children as the supreme responsibility and if i'd had children, would i have shifted here?

You can't really say, but i see no problem with raising a family or anything else other than funding and supporting the whole operation long-term.

Otherwise, it took along time for the view, land, water, electricity, road and feasibility to align.
