So this first solo backpacking trip started from Mumbai, I had plan this trip for my birthday to be precise my 32 birthday (oh no did I just reveal my age ;) and I choose to travel to Bir Billing because I wanted to do paragliding. So my travel started with train journey from Mumbai to Delhi.. you will ask train???? yes cause I love train travel.
Day 1: Reach Delhi
I had booked bus from Delhi to Bir which takes around 12-13 hours to reach , the bus was at evening and I had whole day to explore Delhi so I started by exploring "tibet colony" in Majnu ka tilla, then Gurudwara Bangla Sahib followed by Sis ganj saheb, Majnu ka tilla and the very famous Chandani Chawk.
How to reach Bir :
There are few options to reach Bir
Kullu Manali Airport at Bhuntar is the nearest airport from Billing. The nearest railway station is at Joginder Nagar, from where Billing can be reached by a half an hour taxi ride.
Bir can be reached by an hour ride from Dharamsala too. You can also access the Pathankot junction, which is about 85 km away from Dharamsala. There are Volvo buses which ply from Delhi to Dharamsala and take an approximate time of about ten hours. You can reach Bir from Dharmasala within 2 hours by road.
There are buses from Delhi ISBT Kashmere gate to Bir leaving around 7:30 PM and takes 12 hours to reach Bir.
