Bir Billing offers thrill seekers a chance to experience the Himalayas like never before. The starting point here, where flat land ends, is the approachable Dhauladhar range, one of the branches of the main Outer Himalayas, with the added advantage of easy landing fields along the ridges. “This is the base where you get to experience the Himalayas, but not the extremes of it. Also, here you have a long range of high mountains, which allows you to hop from one ridge to another,” says Roy, who has been paragliding since 2003.
This is also the best place to do distance flying, from Bir Billing to Dharamshala (approximately 100 km) and back. Paragliders come here from across the globe to fly, from September to December and March to May. “Bir Billing also gives you a peek into Tibetan and Himalachali culture,Bir-Billing, the twin paragliding sites, provide perfect weather conditions and infrastructure for paragliding all-year-round. The open valley in the Dhauladhars also makes for some beautiful from-the-sky views.
