The next destination we covered was Bir billing. It is 70 kilometres away from Mcleodganj and takes around 3 hours to reach, crossing Palampur. It has beautiful monasteries, deer park and institute, tea garden to visit.
And, here comes Billing!!
The only reason I went to Billing was Tandem PARAGLIDING.
It has world's second highest and Asia's highest paragliding site which is 8000 feet above the sea level.
I wanted to do it for a long time. And, I finally flew in the sky. It was the best dream of my life with open eyes!
I visited Bir in the end of May and it had coolnees in breeze. It is again a beautiful place having monasteries like Nyingyang Monastery, Choukling Monastery, Tsering Jong Monastery, Deer Institute, Tea garden. Don't miss the monasteries in Bir. They are different from that of Mcleodganj.
While returning, we took a route towards dharmashala. Dharamshala can be covered in a single day.
Being in Dharamshala, the cricket stadium is a must visit!
You can take a halt in dharamshala for one day. For me travelling is not only visiting a place, just to tick off my bucket list but to feel that particular place.
