Hi. I found Uttarakhand, India on Google Earth, but not Mukteshower. Do you know your latitude and longitude, approximately? Very mountainous region in or near the Himalayas. I don't see any part of Uttarakhand that isn't mountainous. What's your altitude? Either meters or feet will do.<br><br>
I don't have experience growing anything indoors, other than sprouting seeds. Do you have access to rice or other grains, and legumes?<br><br>
Oh, here we go. I found Mukteshwar. 7000 feet.<br><br>
I do see some clearings among the trees, and plowed fields, perhaps terraced, judging by the curves. Somebody is growing something in the area of Mukteshwar.<br><br>
Oh yea, in some places I can get down to 8000 feet or less, and see the terraces.

Hi Thank you for taking time. Yes they do grow vegetables, but all supplied to the major cities of India not to the local market, due to the money matters. We do get snow in winter.

Some people are growing cabbages. You can steam the outside leaves. If you can grow cabbage, you can grow brocolli, brussel sprouts, turnips - just about any cruciferous vegetable. Collards are a variety of cabbage that does not form a head. Sweeter, tenderer leaves.<br><br>
Hotels that cater to tourists are serving vegetables.<br><br>
Sounds like a beautiful area.<br><br>
Sorry I didn't see your post above when I posted this one. Maybe you can buy some land. I'm looking at prices now. Water is said to be in short supply although the goverment is bringing in another pipe, still it is said you will have to capture rain water. What is the weather like. How long is the growing season. Shouldn't be hard to find out.

I see land being offered for "4 lakhs per nali." I can't find lakhs on currency converter. Nor can I find the conversion to acres, from nali.<br><br>
Unless you own your own land, I guess you'll need to move away! Sprouted seeds are a good idea though.

How are you travelling those 80 km per day, is that by motor vehicle? I know that through the mountains the roads must wind around alot. Are the roads paved?
