I don't know how many of you have felt this, but I truly believe that there comes a point in your life where you just have to take that leap of faith. This trip, my first "solo trip" was all about my leap of faith from the word go. I had read about Bir throughout the year but somehow was unable to plan a trip because till this point I was heavily dependent on other people for my trips and sadly not everyone shares my zeal for travel. In the month of December, I switched jobs and had a week to spare in between and this week off had a trip written all over it. I ended up planing my trip to Bir-Billing within 2 days!!
Bir-Billing is located in Himachal Pradesh and is known to be the second highest take-off spot for Paragliding in the whole world. There is a direct Volvo that HRTC runs from Delhi-Bir at 6.30 pm from Kashmere Gate. Make sure you book your tickets in advance. Luckily, I met another girl who was also on a solo trip to celebrate her birthday and both of us were staying at Zostel Bir and we instantly hit it off because of our common love for travel.
