The more I wander out.. The deeper I look within.. Slowly but surely I understand.. What all around is happening.. All the people I've met so far.. They came along with some learning.. The lessons that I have to learn.. Are the only way of growing.. N not just humans I'm looking at.. I sit with birds n share a chit chat.. Not in the places or the people's eye.. Can you find why you're still alive.. And the air that I am breathing in n out.. Has all the answers for what I had been looking.. I touch the trees n tell they are beautiful.. Cuz I can feel they're most soulful.. Man may go to as many temples.. But the journey to inward can only fulfil.. One may find the peace in somebody.. But after sometime it will be dreadful.. The one who finds the connection within.. Doesn't really care where he wanders out.. I'm only speaking what I just feel.. Ain't no need to fake out.. Cuz I'm looking deep within.. Far away I'm wandering out.. . . #innerjoon #deepthoughts #doyoutravel #traveldeeper #templesofindia #spiritual #spitilife #highonlife #traveldiary #indian #gypsy #hippie #soul #travel #wander #beyourself #travelwriter #poetry #poet #feelalive #travelwithme #earthofficial #mytravelgram #onelove #travelphotography #himalaya #mytripmyadventure #culturetrip #adventureseeker #theotherside

Strangled between the mountains and the milky way.. . During my last road trip to Spiti Valley in June'18, I stayed in the dormitory of Tabo Monastery. And after exploring the caves, monastery and the village..it was the night time and traveling solo gives you the amazing privilege to be your own self and to do your own things. . And the most beautiful thing one can do is just to witness the wonderful nature and it's miracles around, and get absorbed by them. . The nights in the dry mountains are usually colder, and sleeping of course will take me to some other dimensions but before that, I decided to go upstairs and try some star capturing with my pretty old camera @sonyalpha 6000 and the very basic 18-50 mm kit lens. No expensive gears or nothing, but only the will to witness, experience and capture the beauty of nature. . I never imagined to see the milky way with the naked eyes..but this was the moment which just arrived in time, and after many trials of portraying self with the milky way I got this almost perfect shot. . I've always been in love with the nature, and in return it has always been showing me it's true colors in amazing places. . And I simply observe and appreciate the whole existence for giving me such experiences in this human life. . I believe, that's what I was meant to be..a traveler. . Infact, We're all travelers of light..no matter we realize it or not but we are. . N this journey seems like a neverending relationship, and I'm blessed to feel one with the one. . . #innerjoon #nightphotography #milkyway #himalayas #mountains #spitivalley #roadtrip #adventure #outdoor #travel #travelphotography #IncredibleIndia #solotraveller #wanderlust #visualambassadors #neverstopexploring #outlooktraveller #cntgiveitashot #NGTIndia #natgeo #lonelyplanet #bbcearth #universe #paradise #earthfocus #roamtheplanet #travelblogger #shotzdelight #sonyalpha6000 #nature
Yes, I am a shooting star..shooting the stars.. I am a traveler..lost in the milky way so far.. Yes, I am a watcher..I don't need no drug or tar.. In my isolation..questioning the one where my roots are.. . When I gaze upon them..they come close to me.. Or I'm dreaming..but then what is my reality.. I don't know everything..but I'm gaining clarity.. Ain't no wondering..this is bliss and serendipity.. . Words are less in world..but stars are too many.. Some shine brighter..but mostly are tiny.. Who am I though..just a passenger on my journey.. I'm a vibration..just tuning my symphonies.. . . #innerjoon #milkyway #nightphotography #stargazing #traveling #depthsofearth #nightsky #lonelyplanet #ourplanetdaily #himalayas #nightscape #milkywaychasers #artofvisuals #himachalpradesh #wanderlust #outdoors #neverstopexploring #travelwriter #skywatcher #longexposure #nature #earthfocus #IncredibleIndia #outdoorphotography #awesomeearth #gramslayers #SonyAlphaIN #travelphotography #optoutside #outlooktraveller
On a lonely Hill, I met the Wandering One.. Behind the Mountain and Clouds, was the shining Sun.. Hiking where you had never walked, is the real fun.. When you see no trail, but watching it all was the tree of one.. . . Kabir, the Spanish cyclist I met in the dormitory of Tabo Monastery encouraged me to hike up the steep n dry Hill. The hill made up of rolling Stones and sand, on every step you can feel the thrill. Sun was bright and the wind was blowing, doing is enough instead of knowing. We shared the talks and experiences, like we're not meeting first time..that's how the universe sends out the guides and signs. Not all the things I still remember, but some for sure. But it's there in the subconscious for sure. He was a cyclist, so smoking was one thing he was stubborn to say No. Coming back to the dorm, he even denied to sleep where one of my friend was sleeping after the smoke up. Learning to say NO, is one the major learnings in Life. I'm slowly n gradually learning the art of saying No. Thanks to the friend, I hope to see again sometime. . . #innerjoon #travel #himalayas #nature #beautifulsky #cloudporn #landscape #dslrofficial #outlooktraveller #travelmagazine #lonelyplanet #bbcearth #natgeotravel #natgeocreative #travelblogger #travelwriter #bbctravel #instablogger #adventure #hiking #dogsofinstagram #fatalframes #passionpassport #wanderlust #mountains #photographers #travelphotography #travelgram #outdoor #_travelersofindia
Repost @innerjoon ・・・ Always Alert Avoid Accident. Universe is always guiding you..if you're aware enough to listen to.. . Yes. In the picture 1, the sign board gave me the signs but I was unaware of what was coming next. And in the next picture 2, my bike's front wheel got stuck into a sewage hole which just appeared in the middle of the road from no where. . I'm a safe rider, never in a rush or hurry to arrive.. who loves to breathe the air and capture the views around in eyes and sometimes in the camera. . I was riding smoothly from Nako to Chango, to explore the monastery. The thoughts of little over confidence popped in my head, as I had ridden more than 1000 KMS from home. What a wonderful ride it had been through one of the world's most treacherous roads. And then I met with the first major accident of my journey. . The front wheel (rim) was bent, the handle was bubbling and the total weight that I had to drag on feet by pushing would be around 200+ kg at least. The tyre and tube were visibly out but luckily no other damage was done, and the electric start also worked. In picture 3, I drove it back to till the main road as I could see a car mechanic shop, I asked the guy for some help and he tried his best to straighten the rim by hammering it. But the wheel got some cracks, and wasn't stronger enough to bear another hump or jump like that. . Tough times come, and I know they only come to make you more tougher. . .

The tree was standing alone on this dry mountain.. Don't know when it drank water from the last rain.. N I could not think any better than this.. That life is possible on any damn terrain.. . The dog was simply watching the last sun rays.. Just like the way I send out my prayers.. . I look at the vast sky and the whole nature.. N I look upon thy, what a smallest of creature.. . . The picture was taken in Tabo, up ahead on the dry mountains where the ancient caves were carved. I saw this only Green tree.. surviving..standing..on top of this Hill under the blue sky filled with cotton candy clouds and like always a dog was following on the trail and guiding.. . . . #innerjoon #travel #himalayas #nature #tree_magic #sky #clouds #landscaping #mypixeldiary #CNTGiveItAShot #vscoindia #lonelyplanetindia #bbcearth #natgeotravel #natgeocreative #travelblogger #travelwriter #poet #naturelovers #adventure #hiking #storytelling #visualart #hippieinhills #himgeo #mountains #indiapictures #travelphotography #travelgram #oph

Sometimes the unknown roads take you to the most unique places. . I never imagined I'd find an isolated helipad in the middle of mountains, with no men around. And all I could see were these beautiful mountain scapes, and the most reliable partner of my journey..my bike! I hardly shoot my motorcycle, but I think this was like the perfect place for a perfect bike and a perfect shoot. . Following your instincts is always an amazing experience on this journey called Life. And it took me a lot of time to actually realize the power of this gift called intuition, but its like a blessing now and I'm grateful to the universe for the guidance I receive on my way. . . #innerjoon #solotraveller #hiker #solorider #bikers #makelifearide #helipad #mountains #Himalayas #avenger220 #cruiser #travel #travelphotography #bluesky #roadtrip #heaven #travelsolo #travelblog #motorcycle #motorbike #himachalpradesh #india #traveldiaries #travelgram #photooftheday #photoshoot #ilovemybike #instatravel #feelalive #bestoftheday
~Absorbed at Nako Lake, Himachal Pradesh~ "My journey is my ultimate destination.. My only way of self manifestation.. No greed no lust no frustration.. No fixed time to arrive at the station.. I am one with the one n that's my inner extension.. No need of anyone's physical attention.. Cuz when I look deeper in the Nature.. It simply takes me to other dimension.. I am grateful for this life everyday.. Small things I never forget to mention.." . . #innerjoon #travel #hiking #Himalayas #himalayan #mountains #outdoors #nature #wanderer #explorer #theuncommonbox #travelbloggers #indiapictures #travelphotography #hippieinhills #outlooktraveller #KnowFurther #earthcapture #lonelyplanet #adventures #sky #poetic #travelalone #travelmagazine #lakeside #instagram #roamtheplanet #wanderlust #photooftheday #travelwriter
~The little Himalayan Wanderer~ A young Buddhist boy walks through the ancient stupas and expresses his belongingness to the village Nako, Himachal Pradesh. . Contrasting with the colors of sand and sky, the mountain child wearing the sweatshirt with boats printed.. just like a dream walking alive n waiting for mountains to meet the oceans. . . #innerjoon #travel #wanderlust #himalayan #himalayas #nako #himachalpradesh #documentary #photojournalism #photooftheday #travelblogger #everydayindia #lensculturestreets #streetphotography #kidsofinstagram #travelingram #buddhist #nature #sky #heaven #sonyalphasclub #photojournalist #natgeotravel #travelmagazine #natgeocreative #peoplescreatives #lonelyplanetindia #roamtheplanet #wanderer #traveldiary
Life is beautiful in mountains..Every traveler or tourist thinks that, but ask the ones who actually are living there all seasons. . They will tell you the real story of life, why migration is a becoming a major issue in the mountain regions, if basic education and health facilities are being provided, are they satisfied with the government policies, what if it doesn't rain in monsoon, what if it doesn't snow in winters, how do they survive, how do they find labour for their farms, what price they get from the market for their crops and produce, how they are surviving with the nature, if life is treating them better or worse, what did it take to build a small mud n stone house, do they fear the wild, does the invisible haunt them, what festivals they celebrate, what folk songs they sing, what are small moments of joy in their lives.. . I can write down N number of questions that occur to me as thoughts, and I often ask them in conversations and one think comes out of it..Never Give Up! . Yes, they are the real inspiration for life. As life can never be perfectly fulfilling if we are not ready to accept things the way they are and have a will to survive with heart full of gratitude not miseries. . If u ever come across the locals in mountains, sit along and have a conversation like this and think how blessed you are. . . #innerjoon #travel #mountains #himalayas #clouds #natgeo #everydayindia #dreamhome #dreamer #traveller #outlooktraveller #feelalive #neverstop #bbctravel #EarthCapture #travelphotography #incredibleindia #indianaturally #creativeimagemagazine #photojournalist #fhotosthatspeak #indiapictures #travelblog #themountainsarecalling #nature #peoplescreative #cntgiveitashot #lonelyplanetindia #uttarakhandtourism #tourist
Never forget to just look around n embrace.. While you're running in the race of time n space.. Cuz it's not just the eyes that see the beauty.. It's the soul that connects with the art n creativity.. We're all sharing the same Earth.. But never get too busy to make this life worth.. We're all worthy as we're all still alive.. We're made up with the same elements of five.. Look around your self n feel the jive.. If you still can't see the beauty then take a deep dive.. Dive into ur body n hear what it says.. Nothing lasts forever neither scary night nor fancy days.. So why not to just look around.. N embrace.. embrace.. embrace.. . . #innerjoon #india #indianphotos #indianwriters #indianpoets #indiapictures #indiahikes #indianblogger #incredibleindia #indianaturally #indiagram #wildlifephotography #indiaclicks #wildlifeindia #animalplanet #doga #india_gram #indiatravelgram #ngtindia #cntgiveitashot #bbcearth #lonelyplanetindia #inspiration #dog #mountains #nature #photography #liveauthentic #bevisuallyinspired #traveldiaries
Standing alone on the mountains high.. I am the tree of life.. . Watcher of the light.. I see the clouds taking flight.. Birds sit on the branches n sing along.. I hear everyday the shepherds song.. Witnessing the onset of seasons.. I grow up n deep knowing the reasons.. The ground is lush green n shining.. Few months back it was drying.. I shower in the rain.. N dress up in the snow.. I am one with the nature.. I am a watcher in this amphitheatre.. The mountains are high.. But I am also not shy.. I've seen the travelers coming and going.. Wandering without a will of knowing.. I've seen all shades of white black n grey.. I see people running to temples to pray.. I can write millions of book on what I see.. I can even tell you the way to set your will free.. . Yes, I am the tree of life.. Standing alone on the mountains high.. . . #innerjoon #nature #naturephotography #landscape #landscapephotography #travel #travelphotography #lensbible #poet #travelwriter #traveldeeper #travelmagazine #incredibleindia #indianaturally #natgeotravelpic #earth_shotz #naturelover #tree #clouds #sky #mountain #ourplanetdaily #planetearth #bbcearth #lonelyplanet #wphofficial #instagram #india #travelphoto #travelawesome
I said Julley...They said Joolay !!! N the joy was all around our faces n places.. Julley !!! Joolay !!! . When a stranger walks alone in the stranger streets..n meets new people with a welcoming and overwhelming heart...the beliefs on humanity reforms..that there are still good people living on Earth..who wear a heart bigger than their pockets and wallets. . These beautiful ladies saw me coming and invited me to have some paranthas with them..I had to refuse because I had filled up my tank already before walking down the streets of Leo village, but people and their curious nature gives me pleasure to know little tiny bits about them..the laughter and smile we shared in just a couple of minutes time..was priceless and precious.. . People living in the cities..lead in a superficial way..always in an ego trip of being something n showing off something.. where as when you go deeper in the roots of living..you realize that there is no limit to be joyous and share the good vibrations. . These Kinnauri ladies sharing a small untidy kitchen and cooking food together reminded of my Nani's place..when in early childhood days we used to go to village and see people doing all the daily routine stuff altogether and sharing was real caring. . Traveling solo does expose you to the real time experiences which are essential to firm your beliefs on humanity. . . #innerjoon #travel #travelblog #himachal #himalayan #travelstories #travelphotography #julley #travelalone #wander #sonyalphain #streetphotography #streetsofindia #storiesofindia #beautifulpeople #photojournalism #photooftheday #womenempowerment #humanity #tribal #india #photocollective #lensculturestreets #india_undiscovered #reportagespotlight #love #blogger #strength #photojournalist #humanitarian
U may call it my wanderlust, but I call it my destiny.. When I look at them, they look at me.. When I talk to them, they talk back to me.. When I am close to them, they're close to me..

Leo, Himachal Pradesh. A small village in the midst of dry mountains on a sunny day. . About 105 kms from Reckong Peo pearched on small rocky eminence, on the right bank of Spiti river, and at the confluence of the Lipak torrent flowing from the west is the headquarter of sub-tehsil Hangrang in pooh sub-division. At the east of it is an insulated rock once surmounted by a fort, now in ruins considerably. It occupies a slip of soil embosomed by sterile masses of the earth glowing under the ardour of a tropical sun. . . #innerjoon #travel #travelphotography #himachalpradesh #kinnaur #nature #mountains #himalayas #village #incredibleindia #roamtheplanet #thediscoverer #roadtrip #nomad #wanderlust #lonelyplanetindia #vscoindia #earthfocus #explorer #planetearth #traveller #travelgram #naturephotography #instatravel #bbctravel #wanderer #awesomeearth #landscapephotography #landscape_lovers #spiti
Whatever comes someday will go.. N so does the flock of flamingo.. . On television, I had heard Amitabh Bachchan advertising to visit Gujarat and spot these beautiful birds species. But this time I found a whole flock of Flamingos near the Salt Lake in Rajasthan. . And the beauty of this species of bird is unique, like every other bird species and unlike sick hooman :D . They appear to be pinkish from outside but The blood red coloured wings can be seen only when they're flying, with equal black feathers extended on white feathered body and back with sleek legs and a downward curved bill is cute and a bit similar to hornbill in shape but different. Observing them for while of course make you realize that nature has created such beautiful creations around us, it's us hoomans who fail to see and kill the environment and nature from where it all has evolved. . And as soon as..I could get closer to them..they realized that I'm gonna shoot them, but not with the gun. . And once again, the expression was proved right.. Birds of a feather, fly together. . . #innerjoon #flamingo #bird #birds #birdsofafeather #wildlifeindia #wildlife #nature #wildlifephotography #naturephotography #birdphotography #janekyadikhjaye #birdsofinstagram #travelblog #explore #outdoors #travel #travelphotography #flamingos #pink #featheredfriends #natgeowild #bbcearth #earthcapture #animalplanet #birdsofindia #birdlovers #naturelovers #earthporn #kings_birds
Elegance and Playfulness, is what I see in these beautiful birds called American Avocet. . The one on the right is enjoying the swim and clutching the feathers of the other one walking on water and ready to take a flight. . The playful nature of these little birdies was a delight at the end of the ride. And the upward curved bill is the most unique feature of these black and white feathered flying buddies. . Sometimes, just observing can make you feel delighted. But, not the case with humane society! Rest of the nature, yes!! . Migratory birds fly all the way to different parts of India, and while riding from Sambhar Lake to Pushkar.. I detoured to find a family of Flamingo, But before I could spot them from far away, I found these beautiful friends playing in the waters near a salt factory. . . #innerjoon #birds #americanavocet #wildlife #nature #birdphotography #wildlifephotography #migratorybirds #janekyadikhjaye #birdsofinstagram #earthcapture @bbcearth @natgeo @nature #naturephotography #birdlovers #naturelovers #best_birds_of_ig #ourplanetdaily #nakedplanet #naturegeography #wildgeography #natgeowild #animalplanet #wildlifeindia #natgeo @animalplanetindia #birdwatching #birdstagram #theglobewanderer #earthfocus #travelblogger #solotraveller #wildlifeonearth @natgeoindia @natgeowild @discoverychannelin @bbc_travel @thewcs @lonelyplanetindia @lonelyplanet
Bhangarh Fort | The tales behind the most haunted place in India . Located at the border of the Sariska Tiger Reserve in the Alwar district of Rajasthan, Bhangarh Fort is a 17th-century fort, infamous all over India for being the 'Most haunted place in India'. . Because of the numerous ghostly experiences and happenings in the fort premises, villages have sprung up far away from the fort, due to the fear of what lies within. . Even the Archaeological Survey of India or the ASI has forbidden the locals and tourists from entering the fort at night. . According to legend, a sadhu named Baba Balak Nath lived within the fort area, and it was his injunction that any houses built in the precincts of the fort should not be taller than his house, and if the shadow of any such house fell on his house, it would result in destruction of the fort town. . According to one popular folk tale, a wizard adept in black magic named N.K. Sinhai fell in love with Ratnavati, a beautiful Bhangarh princess with many suitors. One day, the wizard followed her to the marketplace and offered her a love potion, however she refused it, throwing it onto a large boulder that consequently rolled onto the wizard and crushed him to death. Before the wizard died, he supposedly made a curse that Bhangarh would be destroyed soon and no one would be able to live within its precincts. . Subsequently, Bhangarh Fort was invaded by the Mughals from the north and the city was surrounded and sacked, and all inhabitants including the princess were killed. . According to legend, the present state of the fort is the result of the wizard's curse, and the ghosts of the wizard and princess haunt the fort. Local folklore holds that the curse will be lifted someday when the princess is reborn and visits the fort. . . #innerjoon #travel #travelwithme #travelblogger #archaeology #paranormal #myrajasthan #haunted #bhangarh #fort #wanderfolk #exploretocreate #explore #travelphotography #incredibleindia #abandonedplaces #indianphotography #indiapictures #adventure #placestovisit #wanderlust #travelalone #solotravel #instatravel #travelawesome #everydayindia #travelmagazine #historytv18 #natgeotravel #bbctravel

Life is full of possibilities for the one with an open mind..not just opened legs and mouth. . We may be thinking, Life in the physical world begins from darkness..And ends up in darkness too..as we all are born to die. But, what's the point? The point is, Light. . Life, that we experience in this physical world is just because of the light. . And it's the purpose of our life to find the light within the darkness. . When we close our eyes, we nearly see nothing but darkness..and the one who aligns his mind, body and soul to see that light inside can become enlightened. . This human life, is a chance given to all just to experience that phenomena of consciousness. . But the one with open mind and not just opened legs and mouth, who has a free will to take this journey on the inside can experience the enlightenment. . When we are opening our doors of perception, all the definitions of reality are redefined. . It may sound not so easy and real, but what sounds unreal has equal possibility of being real too. . One can never see what lies behind the door without opening the door and walk through. . And the I am not saying anything different or new but just reminding of what we've forgotten long back and have piled up with miseries of this so called reality. .

I worship no God, but Sun.. Lightening up my earth, is the one.. So I just gaze and I praise And I thank him for the days.. Born as a human, standing like a tree.. Sun burns my fire of desires, and sets me free.. I am rooted to the ground, no matter what height.. I am nothing nobody, but a passage of light.. . Whatever idols u may pray.. Whatever words you read in grey.. Whatever bodies u may slay.. Whatever u do or not everyday.. . Try looking into the sun..

I'm in love with this wanderlust.. Lust to wander is feeding my thirst.. I may not be the last or the first.. But I'm in love with this wanderlust.. . Pitched my home in the salted lake.. There is nobody to share my sacred space.. I looked upon them n they kinda set me free.. I'm living the moments n nothing to hurry.. . Barefoot n naked I walked half a mile.. N without no reason I could feel my smile.. I am nature and I live it naturally.. Experiencing wholeness not in a rally.. . I took the long road to reach where I am.. What will happen tomorrow who gives a damn.. Sleeping under million stars makes me rich..

Anu and Meenu. Two daughters of Rajbala, from the previous post drew these beautiful pictures of a hut and a doll. I always encourage creativity and kids have immense skills which are overburdened with the rest of the usual education and life shit. So, when they offered me to stay with them in there tent..I shared some chocolates with the kids and gave them a packet of wax crayons each. And asked them to draw something. Being the kids deprived from school and studies, both of them felt so so good and happy that I can't actually Express in words. It's truly said, happiness is real when shared. It can be shared with anyone or everyone with a clear mind and pure heart. I wish them luck for the future as they're growing young and in a financially poor family and in a small village of India where life would not be as easy as it seems. In the morning, I made them wonder with my little juggling and it's so good to share it with completely strangers. That's how I began on my new journey with some very new kind of experiences. . . #innerjoon #travel #wander #explore #shotononeplus #kids #girlpower #encouraging #happiness #photojournalism #photooftheday #incredibleindia #travelphotography #wanderlust #educate #youngartist #villagelife #indianphotography #travelblogger #travellife #discoverglobe #roamtheplanet #neverstopexploring #yourshotphotographer #documentaryphoto #kids_of_our_world #igers #instatravel #instagood #documentaryphotography
Waiting for justice. Rajbala, a widow with 3 daughters and 2 sons lives here in this nomadic tent. She lost her husband around 10 years ago, and till then she's surviving with her kids by doing field jobs in the farms nearby. She dreams to get her kids educated, and become successful in life and out of the miseries of being poor. As per her, her ancestor's land which is to be inherited by her is no longer hers because the locals of the village being strong and powerful acquired her land. She has plead in the district court, and is still waiting for justice. I don't know how to help her out but if I come across with any organization which actually works for the rights of poor, definitely I will explain the story to them. On the other hand..The old fort is the new hotel now, the ruler king threw the Baba and his piir down the little hill and the poor woman and her kids living in the nomadic tent. I drove up till the fort, considering that it's still a fort but is a luxury hotel now unfortunately. The doorman didn't allow me to go inside the fort without a booking just to even check out the fort or view from the fort. He was doing just his duty, nevermind. Though the cars were parked and I could pitch my tent in a lesser space than a sedan, but they denied for that too..part of their job. Okay. So, i drove down the hill and headed back n saw a grave (mazaar) and my curiosity landed me here. Grounded people have bigger heart, and so was Rajbala..and she offered me a stay in her tent for the night. I bought some Vegetables and Atta for the dinner and later use for them. And we enjoyed the basic meal under the lights of the one. . . #innerjoon #travel #travelblogger #photojournalism #travelphotography #nomadlife #myrajasthan #humanrights #ngo #supportlocal #women #wanderlust #storiesofindia #indiapictures #neemranafort #sky #camping #fort #roadtrip #potd #followmyjourney #cntgiveitashot #ngtindia #truestory #neverstopexploring #explorer #wanderer #traveler #lifeofadventure #backpacking
In conversation, two Nuns outside the temple. Hango Nunnery, Himachal Pradesh. . . I photographed these two nuns in conversation when I was walking out of the main temple hall. I can only assume that they were discussing about my request to stay there, by that time I was unaware that it's a nunnery and men are prohibited. The robes were same as monks, even the outlook was identical with monks. Though, I later learned that the Head of this nunnery was a Lama only. The life that nuns are supposed to lead deprives them from many worldly goods, one is men. In many ways I find the contradictions in the religious setups, be it Buddhism. What exactly is the agenda, and why all this propaganda? Buddha, one of the most popular and wide spread symbolic character for enlightenment, which in my understanding is the awareness of the consciousness. How can limits set you free for experiencing the unlimited, the consciousness. And how can eating of animals be granted at a religious place? What is the truth? And if the truth exists then why so many limitations over it for experiencing it. So many questions arise and the mind keeps wandering for the truth, and so does the seeker. The Head Lama was gone to perform some ceremonies in the village, an old lady had died. Thanks to these kind nuns, who gathered faith and provided me little shelter to stay. Traveling solo has made me courageous and a believer of goodness, which the cities I was dwelled into had washed up that system of belief. . . #innerjoon #natgeoinspires #natgeotravel #sonyalpha #bbctravel #bbcearth #lonelyplanet #lonelyplanetindia #outlooktraveller #photojournalism #itswhatido #gettyreportage #creativeimagemagazine #lifeiswhatyoumakeit #mangofolk #yourshotphotographer #documentary #photography #travelphotography #incredibleindia #cntgiveitashot #natgeo #natgeofineart #travel #himalayas #buddhism #nuns #conversation #photooftheday #thephotosociety @natgeo @natgeotravel @bbc_travel @incredibleindia @gettyimages @magnumphotos @burnmagazine @lonelyplanet @lonelyplanetindia @creativeimagemagazine @indiaphotoconcept @thephotosociety
Bell and Dorje. . The sound that is generated by the form of Bell goes back into nothing, into the void. Like the very phenomena of our existence, everything is nothing and nothing is everything. . Dorje represents the innate capacity of transforming every experience into enlightened perspective. . These sacred instruments have deeper meanings in there structure and design. . We go on using and exercising things around us without awareness and staying busy in leading the cyclic life. . Everything around us is trying to teach us something, only if we're willing and aware. . . #innerjoon #dorje #bell #sacred #instrument #buddhism #monastery #travel #travelphotography #instatravel #temple #indianphotography #details #explorer #wanderer #bbctravel #planetearth #lonelyplanetindia #vscoindia #traveller #roamtheplanet #indiapictures #exploreeverything #neverstop #knowledge #travelgram #sonya6000 #photooftheday #theglobewanderer #instalikes
Nothing is up there, but I see more than just two eyes. . . Look, look deep n as far as you can see.. The blowing wind will set you free.. . N only when I looked up, I got to see.. Those big eyes, were looking at me.. . I was wondering if it's a dream or destiny.. But I ain't lost, cuz angels were guiding me.. . . #innerjoon #wanderer #traveler #writer #explorer #wonder #wind #visualsoflife #mountains #clouds #sky #nature #path #awakening #dreamer #nomad #photographer #skywatcher #travel #travelphotography #naturephotography #traveldeeper #notallthosewhowanderarelost #gypsysoul #visualauthority #visualsofearth #weareone #earth #landscapes #visualambassadors
Where on Earth you can witness such heavenly creation? YASSS!! HIMALAYAS. . Anymore words, will be an understatement. . Shady blue sky full of hovering clouds.. One giant mountain with infinite contours formed by wind and snow, dry yet so vibrant.. the green trees and farming lands in steps.. Wind so chilly, of course the camera can't capture that.. . They say that Mountains we're first, then came trees and then us, the animals.. it would have been much better without us too! . Cuz we cut the Mountains and make roads.. We cut the trees, destroying the wilds homes.. We burn everything possible n kill the fresh air.. We throw shit here n there n spoil the beauty of this sphere.. . It surely would have been much more beautiful.. without hoomans!! . But still there some places like this, where the shit is least and nature is at it's best. . Hango | Himachal Pradesh | India . Stay tuned for more! . . #travel #instatravel #ngtindia #cntgiveitashot #bbcearth #bbctravel #cnntravel #natgeotravel #natgeofineart #discoverearth #roamtheplanet #lonelyplanet #othallofframe #outlooktraveller #incredibleindia #himalayas #travelphotography #naturephotography #natgeo #explore #thephotosociety #himachal #earth #agameoftones #bealpha #createexplore #landscape #nomad #photography #innerjoon . . .@natgeo @natgeofineart @bbc_travel @bbcearth @cnntravel @cnncreate @thephotosociety @magnumphotos @natgeotravel @lonelyplanetmagazineindia @lonelyplanetindia @lonelyplanet @outlooktraveller @condenasttraveller @cntravellerindia @incredibleindia
I kept looking everywhere.. . N the road just took me there.. . Drawings on mountain skin.. . I can feel every bit of cold wind.. . A face on the road carved rock.. . Deep in the valley are living folk.. . Rising up higher n deeper I see.. . Every mile is a magic n I am free.. . Are u watching what I have to show.. . Mountain peaks crowned with snow.. . Sand stone packed mount on my side.. . Other one looks orange and dried.. . Next ones are getting greener shades on.. . Who the hell fuck needs somebody to lean on.. . I am a dreamer I live my dream.. . To hell with the bitches who made u scream.. . Hail the nature and breathe the freedom.. . Man if you connect with nature there's no boredom.. . Everything I say, if u read in mind it'll stay.. . . #innerjoon #nature #landscape #mountains #Himalayas #poetry #dreamer #travel #wander #photographer #artofvisuals #discoverlandscape #exploretocreate #trip #himachal #landscapephotography #TravelPhotography #natgeotravel #bbctravel #cntgiveitashot #instatravel #indiapictures #india #explore #natureaddict #landscapes #igersofindia #roadlesstraveled #wanderlust #Adventure
Where am I? Chuling! . Chuling, isn't a slang word but the name of another beautiful village in Hangrang Valley which will take you to another last village of Kinnaur region, that I'll tell you in the next posts ;) . Well, The patch of green got bigger, as I moved further. . Every other vehicle on the road was heading to Nako, even the road was smooth like cream too. But I love to take the route less crowded, no matter if its little off road too. So, I took the left and it turned out to be right! . Shining from the middle of the valley were snow caped peaks, what else could be more fascinating to my wandering soul! . I could feel the wind getting a little colder here, because of trees and the streams of Spiti river flowing in the valley down there. . Vegetation as I see now, is abundance of Life. Trees, birds, fruits, crops, water, light and wind.. it makes me feel abundant..and whenever I get that feeling..i just let my arms stretch wide open..just as an expression..so do I feel as a part of it.. . . #innerjoon #traveller #explorer #wanderer #photographer #travelblogger #instablog #kinnaur #himachalpradesh #TravelPhotography #nomadsofindia #_travelersofindia #nature #mountains #himalayas #travel #natgeotravel #bbctravel #cnntravel #indiatravel #followmyjourney #travelgram #lonelyplanetindia #unexplored #letsgoeverywhere #landscape #makelifearide #bikelife #solo #adventuretime
Hangrang Valley, Kinnaur, Himachal Pradesh. . The entrance to the Spiti valley when you're riding from Shimla - ReckongPeo route. . The picture is not exactly from Spiti Valley, but Kinnaur. But what was running through my mind was Spiti. . And the magical views of mountains and landscapes have just begun to come in the line of sight. . Wind carved, barren and dried mountains and a patch of green overlooking from the middle of them in the valley..the floating cotton candy clouds..the sky that never looked so beautifully blue..the whole picturesque existence of nature when fits right into your small retina..a very amazing feeling of euphoria visits ur mind and stays. . Blissful, is the appropriate expression to this whole experience. . I find words being limited while describing about such a limitless composition of widely ranged landscapes. . All I can say is, you have to be there to feel it. N better if you do it alone, so there are no distractions between you and the blissful nature. . . #innerjoon #travel #explore #himalayas #spiti #kinnaur #himachalpradesh #incredibleindia #landscapephotography #travelphotography #mountains #nature #valley #indiapictures #lonelyplanet #natgeotravel #cnntravel #bbcearth #bbctravel #cntgiveitashot #roadtrip #travelblog #paradise #Beautiful #travelstoke #himgeo #scenic #landscape #skyblue #cloudy
The lone ranger in higher Himalayan ranges . The very first glimpse of cold deserted mountains carved by the wind gives you the chills and very simple feeling of WOW! . Heaven, is not a place but the feeling when you put your soul into the heavenly settlements of nature. . Such was the moment in life when after riding and wandering for 4 days and around a thousand kilometers away from the planes of Haryana where I was born. . This was the first time when i was riding towards Spiti valley, and first times are the best of the times undoubtedly. . What an amazing picturesque arrangement of almost dried mountains and adding beauty to them were the clouds hovering in the deep blue sky. . A black Raven flies by in the middle of it, some good omen! maybe. They have always been around to give me a company. . I just stopped my bike to witness the very magical happenings still and moving, but just like the Earth keeps revolving n rotating I had to move further too. . Where I was going I had no clue, but I was going in the right direction n I felt it true. . #innerjoon #digitalnomad #indiapictures #writersofindia #theweekoninstagram #outlooktraveller #lonelyplanet #tripotocommunity #BBCTravel #yourshotphotographer #EarthCapture #travelgram #outdoor #landscape #cnntravel #travelstoke #beautifulview #doyoutravel #roadtrip #guardiantravelsnaps #cntgiveitashot #incredibleindia #travelphotography #travelpics #wanderlust #mountains #himalayas #kinnaur #spiti #himachalpradesh
Finding the right balance is the key to abundance in Life. . Positivity comes with Negativity, Goodness comes with Badness, Happiness comes with Sadness, Light comes with Darkness, Politeness comes with Harshness, . And it all comes with Experience. . Nature has it's own way of keeping everything in accord with it's own balancing scheme. You may realize it sooner or later, but the Universe is existing in this way only. . Finding balance is never so tough, all we need to do is to raise our vibrations and tune into the higher frequency. . And where there is a will there's a way! . . #innerjoon #trekking #hiking #trekwithforclaz #_travelersofindia #wildcraftwildling #Himalayas #himalayan #mountains #travel #outdoors #treepose #yoga #nature #wanderer #explorer #balancing #namaste #theuncommonbox #uttarakhand #positivevibes #travelbloggers #indiapictures #travelphotography #hippieinhills #outlooktraveller #KnowFurther #earthcapture #lonelyplanet #adventures
The winter's on the line.. N the moon is up to shine.. When the sun sets down behind.. I see the ocean of the dreams.. Clouds flowing through the pines.. N the mountains are so high.. Taking me closer to the one so divine.. . How often do you see the magic.. Well I'm just a seeker n everyday is mine.. I feed my soul in the laps of nature.. N that's my only shrine.. No idols no symbols no boxes no books.. But I fold my hands to thank the one so divine.. . . #innerjoon #himalayas #himalayan #sunset #sunsetlovers #skyporn #hiking #travel #heaven #nomad #wanderlust #nature #mountains #lonelyplanetindia #KnowFurther #vscoindia #earthfocus #planetearth #traveller #travelgram #indiapictures #naturephotography #roamtheplanet #instatravel #view #bbctravel #wanderer #awesomeearth #earthpix
