One thing must be kept in mind here. Searching for a decent and clear agricultural property is a huge task anywhere in India. Even more so in Uttaranchal, due to its hilly terrain and distance from usual metro cities. So unless you are willing to make umpteen trips and have patience for a few years in the process, there is no point dreaming about it.
I am not perfect !!! So bear with me. I will get quite bearable with time !!;):D;)

Hello all,

During my visit to Badrinath dham i was mesmerized by the beauty of this place.
Is it possible to have a land in badrinath?
What would be land price of this place?
Is a non UK person is allowed to buy there?

The second place i liked most in UK was Harsil.
The same question for this place too.

Purpose is to stay not for commercial use. I am a purely a city person, only hit mountains during my daughter's summer vacation. Dream day & night that one day i will stay in mountains. I am open for any other place which may have the similar scenic beauty with some basic requirements like electricity water. If it is far from Delhi say > 500km then i am interested to know the place. If it <400km its not an ideal choice for me.

Hi Mahesh,
I too was looking around New Tehri - Chamba - Ranichouri area but now have changed my mind and looking around Mukteshwar in Kumaon.
The rates for good property were in the range of 8-10 L/Nali in New Tehri- Chamba area.

Thanks Captain. Can I ask you the reason for the shift to Mukteshwar? I had chosen New Tehri and Uttarkashi because of water availability. I find Mukteswar attractive too but am not too sure of the long term water availability. Can you please educate me on the same and the reasons you have for Mukteshwar.

Don't expect career and relocation to go hand in hand. You will be hard pressed to find decent earning opportunities in your field of expertise. If you have any chance, it will be towards Garwhal side, close to Dehradun.

Secondly, look for places on or close to foothills if you really wish to move but have employment and kid's education as a priority. If you move from Sitargang all the way to Herbertpur, you will find some beautiful flat land where you will be close to hills and have access to good schools and employment opportunity.

If you wish to move higher to places like Ranikhet, Nainital, Musoorie etc., then employment will take a hit and schooling opportunities will be limited to few options. So in nutshell, don't expect your present lifestyle to tag along with you, contentment, either forced or voluntary, is what you will be looking at.

If you don't have existential issues and have enough money to provide for your kid's future and make normal assets like home, small farm etc, then you can think of moving to hills and look for career by getting involved in local opportunities. Remember that moving to hills requires passion, which in many instances turns out to be misplaced, and what follows is regret.

Hi Jitu,

Thank you for your insight.
What about opportunities for my wife?

Also what do you exactly mean bh local opportunites, will I able to earn atleast 20-20k per month.

Selling what I have in Mumbai and relocating is a very tough decision. That is why I am listing out the possibilities in and around kumaon..!

Msc Med is education, right? If that is so, then opportunities for your wife will be plenty. Quality educators are lacking here so she should have no problem getting a good job. In fact, she can open up her own education center, teachers, specially in science stream are hard to find.

20K/Month is not difficult. Local opportunities mean like education, tourism, farming, dairy etc, mostly entrepreneurial. You will have to do some in depth analysis on what is required and what you can provide.

Any clue about my query. I have no intention of settling in UK as of now. I will continue to remain where i am and do whatever i am doing in this dead town. Its just the first step towards my dream. If everythings goes well, at some later point i will ask "how to settle and earn my livelihood" in UK.

Badrinath area may be out of reach for non uk people, the place seems to be dominated by tribal people (near mana gram etc.).
And Badrinath connectivity is very tough. And for 4-6 months people can't stay there due to snowfall and extreme weather.
Hence forget Badrinath

And to add to that, most of Joshimath Tehsil panchayats have unofficially banned villagers to sell land to outsiders.

Had inquired in a few different villages, and was told that few years back, a group of Punjabis had bought land near Joshimath. shifted here, and they used to hold rave-parties, loud dance music all night long, car-races in mountain roads, quarrels in panchayat meetings, and such things. So panchayats don't allow registration of land to outsiders. Long-term (10-20 year) rental is possible, but no registry.

Punjabis rock :danc:

Thanks rajat and blue bharal.
I totally agree with you rajat regarding the natural challenges of this area and that’s the only reason to buy. I am not intending to live up there. I know even Badri vishal comes to Joshimath during winters, so no plans to stay there. I would love to lock the house throughout the year but when the itch becomes uncontrollable then only nature can stop me. When we visit such places we generally plan and explore the tourist points but there are things beyond those points which due to financial / time constraints we don’t cover.

That's bad for me the_blue_bharal. So even though they don’t sell to outsider could you still through some light about the land rates of joshimath, pandukeswar or badridham. The place I am looking for should be secluded peaceful, full of nature and far from delhi. I am not looking in guptkashi, Uttarkashi, almora, dehradun, nainital i.e. nearby places. I am more interested in Karnprayag, chamoli, harsil, badri, gangotri somewhat remote but due to tourism on such places I expect water and electricity shouldn’t be any problem.
