Bir Billing Paragliding and Trekking Trip

Bir is a small town in Himachal Pradesh and Billing which is 15 Km away from Bir and makes up for a 42-minute trek, is the center for adventurous activities. Trekking and Paragliding in Bir Billing are the two main adventure sports that Bir Billing is famous for around the country and the world.
Bir Billing has its own set of stories about how the paragliding actually started in the place. If we go by what the local guides claims then it was started by a guy who was interested in paragliding and made his first paraglider using torn polythene pieces and rags.
There is a heavy Tibetan influence over the place and one could never miss the monasteries in Bir Billing, which is also one of the main attractions besides paragliding and adventure sports.
The best time for paragliding in Bir Billing is divided into two segments, which are October-November and March-June. Bir Billing receives snowfall in the winter season and thus, the paragliding is not possible without a clear sky which is the reason.

Apart from all the adventurous activities, Bir Billing is famous for, there is still much more to the place like its delicious cuisine. From softest and tastiest pancaked to hot-chili momos, you get it all and the little Tibetan touch in the cuisine is noticeable and equally appreciated as well.
