THE GYPSY CHIRING
Pronam, Namaskar & Kardom! 🙏
A travel Blogger based in Assam, India, The Gypsy Chiring is Joydeep Phukan. The word “Gypsy” (“যাযাবৰ” in the Assamese language) means nomad. While Chiring is the term signifying my lineage of Ahom roots. The logo of The Gypsy Chiring starts with the letter জ and চ of the Assamese alphabets. Kardom refers to greetings in Karbi dialect of Assam. This travel blog is my way of representing my love for travel, culture and nature.
The website is a fusion of stories on travel, adventure, hiking, trekking, mountaineering, culture and tourism as a whole.
I intend to promote the less-explored and off-beat destinations of Northeast India. Expressing authentic moments with nature, places and culture is my passion.
I also share travel guides and travel tips of such destinations in Northeast India and the world. Welcome to the plethora of thrilling experiences and soothing stories.
It is also a platform for enthusiast writers and travel bloggers to get their work published, thereby developing together through collaborations.
Northeast India is pristine in regard to its ethnic diversity, nature-human relationship and art forms. The Gypsy Chiring is my platform to know, learn, understand and promote the essence of Northeast India through a local’s perspective.
