Sleeping under sky!

Reflections!

"Laugh, I tell you
And you will turn back
The hands of time.

Smile, I tell you
And you will reflect
The face of the divine.

Sing, I tell you
And all the angels will sing with you!

Cry, I tell you
And the reflections found in your river of tears -
Will remind you of the lessons of today and yesterday
To guide you through the fears of tomorrow."..... Panch Bakhtar Temple - Mandi Himachal Pradesh

When you come across many parked cars, while traveling on such terrains, you know that you are stuck there for quite some time.

The Highest Twin Peaks of Himachal Pradesh as seen/captured from Kinner Kailash Shivling point 🏔️🇮🇳😇 •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
1: 'Reo Purgyil, 6816m' (Highest Peak of Himachal Pradesh)

2: 'Leo Pargial, 6791m' (3rd Highest Peak of Himachal Pradesh with 2nd being {Gya Peak,6794m} just 3m higher) •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
~ These two Peaks are amongst the Very few times Scaled Peaks of Himachal Pradesh. { Reo Purgyil being scaled only twice: Climbed for the first time in 1971 by Indian Army of which details were not available and the summit was always questioned & then successful summit was done in 1991 by 4 Climbers from Delhi } { Leo Pargial being climbed for first time in 1933 & then second & third Summit was done only during 1970s & 80s by Indian Army & ITBP, no other records available after that for the successful summit of this Peak } ~ These peaks are Technically Difficult to Climb due to Tough Terrain, Unpredictable Weather and other Geographical factors. •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
~ Chinese boundary begins on the Eastern side of these Peaks. •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••~ Out of 5 times, this is the first time I was able to see/capture these peaks due to clear weather this time on these peaks (let me remind you it was just for about 30-40 seconds that these peaks were visible) ~ Captured through Nikon L340 (28x Optical Zoom) 📷

14 kms from Kibber (14200 ft) ,we trekked to an altitude of 15500 ft to have a magnificent view of 14 villages in the spiti valley and a fantastic view of Chau Chau Kang Nilda peak (CCKN -also known as 'Guan Nelda' or 'blue moon in the sky' ) and Kanamo Peak (also known as “White Hostess”). Our guide was a young man called Norphil -extremely knowledgeable and helpful.He also owns a nice home stay at Kibber( Norling Home stay) #westernhimalayas #himalayas #mountain #mountains #nature #trekking #naturephotography #spiti #roadtrip #trek #iphonephotography #bluesky #peaks #norlinghomestay #blueskydestinations #just_photography

In India many destinations have derived names from the mythology. The mysterious Prashar Lake in Mandi is one such place. The panoramic vistas of Dauladhar Ranges welcome the travellers to this enchanting place. An oval shaped lake with the back drop of mountains look dramatic, like the one from landscape paintings!
It is believed that sage Prashar meditated on the banks of this lake. Hence it is named as Prashar Lake in Himachal Pradesh.

Prashar Lake Trek is one of the famous trek routes in this region. The trail which begins at Baggi Village passes through the jungles and hilly slopes accompanied by the Dhauladhar Mountain Ranges. Even Pir Panjal and Kinnaur Peaks are visible through this trek route. The mystic blue lake and a pagoda-like temple next to the lake surrounded by splendid scenery gets stashed in your memories forever... .

तीनो लोक में बसता है वो , शिव नही तेरी भक्ति का रस्ता है वो ।। माथे पर धारे भस्म वो , काँधे पे उसके कंच चिनार
केश पर बांधे वेघ गंगा का
कंठ में है उसके विष का संसार ।। तीनोँ लोक में बसता है वो ,शिव नही तेरी भक्ति का रास्ता है वो ।। आंखों मैं उसके अन्तदृष्टि
जटाओं में है बैरवनाथ
वो भविष्य भूत से है परे
कहते है उसे भोलेनाथ ।। वो गौरी नही वो शंकर नही
वो तो है काली का महाकाल
ओमकार नही नटराज नही
वो है सती के अस्तित्व का एहसास ।। तीनो लोक मैं बस्ता है वो,शिव नही तेरी भक्ति का रास्ता है वो ।। गले मे उसके माला रुद्राक्ष की
काँधे पे उसके वासुकी नाग
त्रिशूल में उसके यथार्थ है
ना अन्त उसका , ना आरम्भ का प्रतिकार ।। तीनों लोक मैं बस्ता है वो , शिव नही तेरी भक्ति का रास्ता है वो ।। Location :- Bijli Mahadev

A few Ladakhi women, from Sumur, were visiting the Skuru Monastery. They were having a picnic of sorts in the grounds of the monastery when, upon spotting us, they invited us to join them in their revelry. They offered us Chhang (local liquor) and then performed their traditional dance for us. Amazed by their simplicity and wonderful hospitality.

Location 👉DEV KAMRUNAG TEMPLE
・・・
एक झील है यहीं पास में तेरी आँखों से गहरी और मेरे अरमानो से ज्यादा थकी हुई

किनारे उसके टहलने चला जाता हूँ कभी

वो जो गाना था हम साथ में गुनगुनाते थे

उसे अकेले ही गाता हु कभी
इश्क़ से भी वो महरूम ठहरी है
सांसो से भी ज़्यादा वो सहमी है
साहिल उसका हर रागिनी सा झिलमिलाता है

बिन कहे वो सारे गीत मुझे सुनता है
मैं रूठ जाउ तो गालिब सा मुझे मनाता है
डर जाउ तो चांदनी सा सहलाता है ll

किनारे उस झील के मुझे हर वो कहानी सुनाते है , जो कह कर भी किसी ने सुनी नही
दासता उस मोहब्बत की जो मुकम्मल होकर भी कभी बनी नही
चांदनी जहां नीर को छू कर हीरा बन जाती है
हर दरख्त जहां इबादत की दास्तां सुनाता है
एक झील है यही पास मैं जहां जब भी मैं जाता हूं ,खुद को जन्नत मैं पाता हूं ll
