If you are looking for adventure and a tryst with nature, Bir is the place to be. Located a couple of hours from Mcleodganj, Bir offers travellers an unforgettable experience. The small town in Himachal is ideal if you'd like to paraglide or learn paragliding, though you can also spend a couple of days here just enjoying the scenery and the quiet. In recent years, Bir has also become a great place for spiritual seekers. Perhaps the perfect place for meditation sessions, the homestays here add to the aura of this stunning hill station. Do also visit the Bir Tea factory, the Sherab Ling Monastery and the Chokling Monastery. All these tourist points are close to the town centre though you may need a car to reach them. For adventure enthusiasts, you'll be happy to know that Bir and Billing is considered to be the second best paragliding site in the world and the pilots here are excellent at what they do. If you like and you have time on your hands, you can also enrol in a paragliding course here (the minimum course period being 5 days).
