Lumberjacks preparing to roll the trunk of a big pine tree they just cut (India)

This was on the mountain road to Gangotri, in the Bhagirathi valley. The lumberjacks did not have any power tool or chainsaw, just two-man crosscut saws and wood axes. Yet they were able to cut and move large pine trees. Trucks had to wait some times until they cleared the road.
