  • Trip introduction

    This adventure-packed trip to Bir Billing combines a short trek from Bir to Billing with an exciting session of paragliding at Billing. The trek from Bir to Billing takes you uphill through pleasant meadows and pine woods with scenic views of the Kangra hills in sight.

    Your paragliding adventure will strap you in for an exciting flight from Billing to Bir with birds-eye views of the entire valley below you and the Dhauladhar mountains on the horizon. At night, you'll stay in cozy alpine tents pitched to give you the perfect view of the star-studded night sky. Before the trip comes to an end, you'll also take a tour of the monasteries at Bir and explore the local markets, cafes and attractions.

    Destination

    Bir is a small town at the foothills of the mighty Dhauladhar range of mountains in Himachal Pradesh. Home to a large population of Tibetan refugees, the town has developed a unique culture of spiritual study and meditation centred around Buddhism. A short distance from Bir is the town of Billing, located atop the foothills with scenic forests all around. The combined area of Bir Billing is popular among paragliders due to favourable wind conditions and breathtaking views of the upper Dhauladhar mountains. With international competitions bringing in travellers from all around the world, Bir Billing is often called the paragliding capital of India.

    • Participate in an exciting paragliding session at Billing.
    • Stay in alpine tents pitched under the stars.
