Elections at Chamasari, Uttarakhand ! A long trek and a grand show...

Five km rugged trek from Saaremaa to Chamasari village 

Many temples and a beautiful view all along the way
A beautiful, motorable road joins Chamasari village to Dehradun via Sahastradhara, but the small stretch to our side of Mussoorie is still to be completed.
En route - a lot of campaigning happened all over Uttarakhand for the 3 in 1 election which happens every five years - for the Gram, Kshetra and Zila Panchayat
A major event indeed! Almost like a wedding with everyone showing up in their Sunday best!

Of trails, paths and benches...

One of the many paths leading to ..........
HIIUMAA.... up above...
Grandmothers bench - much cherished and used!
And one of the other many benches found  along walking trails across the property - nice to rest on, catch the amazing view and your breath !

Saaremaa verandahs and terraces

Saaremaa front verandah - best place on a warm summer day!

Saaremaa back verandah and terrace - for all seasons! For the best views and star gazing

Saaremaa rooftops - wonderful to hear the rain and hail under them!
