Peace, unspoilt nature's beauty, chanting monks and smell of freshly steamed momos - it sounds like perfect getaway from city hustle, right? Bir Billing is a world-famous and world second best paragliding destination (after Lake Como in Italy) surrounded with forests, valley and hills. It's a great place for solo travelers as well.
The town located in Kangra district in Himachal Pradesh is a unique place to explore, espescially when you look for some peaceful moments away from polluted mega cities. From Delhi it takes around 12 hours in overnight bus to reach Bir. First thing which you will notice after entering the main street in Bir is the big amount of multicolour tibetan prayer flags. The Tibetans believe the prayers and mantras will be blown by the wind to spread the good will and compassion into all pervading space.
What adds more charm to this travel destination is the presence of many charming buddhist monasteries. Many monks and students come to Bir for buddhist studies and you can capture some beautiful moments with little boys running on the massive staircase of the monastery. Take a deep breath, meditate and absorb the exceptional atmosphere. The stupas are not only located in lovely place but also marvelously painted. Many people from allover the world come to Bir to do one thing - fly from the hill. Paragliding is a thrilling experience which will give you memories for a lifetime. You don't need to have any special training, just few minutes of instruction, because through the whole paragliding experience a trained professional is going to accompany you. If you want to do the paragliding you have to be in general good physical and mental condition and your weight should be between 45kg to 85kg.
If you are not a fan of adrenaline dose, still you should visit the top of Bir Billing for amazing views. Bir is meant to be discovered on foot and explored slowly. Take a stroll and enjoy the beautiful surrounding.
