A small village nestled in the valleys of Kangra, Himachal Pradesh, is Bir and situated at a distance of 14 km is another hamlet, Billing. However, you would find that both these villages are often referred together because of a simple reason. They form India’s best paragliding site and Asia’s second-best paragliding site.
However, even though they are so popular all over the world now, they still remain untouched pieces of mountain beauty.
So, if you wish for an escape to a quieter and peaceful hill station in Himachal then Bir Billing is where you should head to. Apart from being known for paragliding, this place is also known for its Tibetan roots and is a great way to experience the Tibetan culture.
Here, you can explore the monasteries and learn more about the life of the monks while trying some delicious Tibetan cuisines like momos, Thukpas, Sha Phalay, and so on.
The number one reason why anyone would visit Bir Billing is that of the stunning paragliding experience on offer. The view of the valley, the jump off the edge of the cliff, and the stunts performed by co-pilots while flying are truly amazing.
