Bir Billing Paragliding Overview

Experience an amazing paragliding ride in the skies of Billing on your next holiday with your family and friends. Experienced pilots will offer you both single and tandem rides for Bir Billing paragliding experience and will take you on both short and long flights across the Dhauladhar ranges.

After a quick briefing session by instructors about the activity, a group of professionals help gliders get adjusted onto the paraglider. Once that's done, the fun begins! The experience of paragliding in Bir, picturesque view of the Dhauladhar ranges and the cool breeze brushing against gliders makes for a thrilling adventure.

The short fly will be for 5 to 6 minutes depending on weather conditions. You will get to enjoy a birds-eye view of the beautiful hills. The take-off point is at Billing, which is a popular offbeat paragliding site. This activity is suitable for the age group of 16 years to 45 years. The equipment you will need is imported from France and are tested for safety.  If you wish you can also opt for recording your paragliding moment on a GoPro to save your memories for a lifetime at an additional cost.

How to reach: It is located at about 16 km from Bir and you can reach the landing site by either taking public transport or by hiring a private cab.

    Bir is located in Bhangra district, at a convenient distance from Dharamshala. From Delhi also, it is easy to reach. Paragliding has a lot of fans these days and it was evident at this place. A glide along the beautiful location had me in bliss. The organizers have made it into a proper adventure spot with so much enthusiasm. A lot of people were there when I reached there. Had to wait for a while to get my spot. But i was really waiting to do it with all my heart. Proper instructions and the flying gears were absolutely fine. I had the best time of my life doing this remarkable adventure. I am looking forward to doing it again next year. Great effort people. Thank you.

    The experience with Thrillophilia was worth remembering. I was little reluctant to the concept of online booking initially but is glad to be proven wrong. The whole team was supportive and available 24/7 for any queries. The vendor provided was also experienced, friendly and held good knowledge about the adventure supports/trekking etc. I highly recommend Thrillophilia packages.

However, in case you are paragliding using your own equipment, you need a license and permission from the concerned authority.

Bir is the landing site and qualifies for a safe landing site owing to its smooth ground and low wind intensity.

    7. What should I wear while doing paragliding?

    13. If in any emergency will I be provided with a first aid box?

      Yes, the activity organizers normally have measures in place for any mishaps and have first aid kits with them. Yet, it is recommended that you carry your own first aid kit whenever you are travelling just to be on the safer side.

    14. What happens if the wind stops? Do I fall?

      No, you will not fall if the wind stops because paragliders can be flown even when there is no wind at all. Relative wind over the wings acts against the gravity and is responsible for the flight. So, there is no risk of falling down since you will just glide down in any case.

    15. How is paragliding different from hang gliding?
