This trip plan is perfect for those who needs adventure and leisure together. We are covering two beautiful and lesser explored destinations of Himachal Pradesh, i.e. Bir Billing and Barot. Bir Billing is famous for monasteries and is considered the best site for Paragliding in India whereas Barot is a serene and beautiful place which is popular for activities like angling, trekking, etc.
Bir Billing the paragliding capital of India, is a noted center for ecotourism, spiritual studies and meditation. Bir is also home to a Tibetan refugee settlement with several Buddhist monasteries and a large stupa.
The paragliding launch site is in the meadow at Billing (14 km north of Bir), at an elevation of 2400 metres, while the landing site and most tourist accommodations are in the village of Chowgan (also spelled Chaugan), on the southern edge of Bir.
Barot is a tiny village situated in the Mandi district of Himachal Pradesh. The road to Barot is scenic and offers views of terraced fields and dense cedar forest. The village also forms the gateway to the Nargu Wildlife Sanctuary. The sanctuary is home to varieties of animals such as Monal, Black Bear, Ghoral, etc.
