Travelling Camera @ Billing, World's famous Para-gliding site...After a long road journey through Mandi, Hamirpur, Sujanpur-Tira, Palampur, Dharmshala and Baijnath, we finally reached Billing, world famous site for Paragliding.Just crossed Bir to reach Billing for experiencing paragliding on world's famous site in Dhauladhar Mountain range... Under legs of mountains and surrounded by tea gardens Bir a small village with a Tibetan Colony and monasteries in Kangra district of Himachal Pradesh(INDIA) which serves as a landing ground and a base for Hang/Para-gliders. Launching or take-off place is BILLING which is a little meadow at 2408 meters (8550 feets) on the Dhauladhar ranges: 14 kilometers up from Bir. This meadow is one of the wonders of nature seems like perfectly designed as a launch pad. Billing has become a legend on the international paragliding circuits and a destination for World Champion Paraglider pilots. The meadow directly above the villages of Bir and Chaugan is one of the best gliding sites in the world...Travelling Camera trying to capture wonderful colors of BILLING through side mirror of Hundai i10 ... From Billing the mountain range runs all the way to Dharamsala by separating the Kangra district distrc from Chamba. To the north of the meadow is the high peaks and to the south the plains. The fall from the meadow is about one kilometre and an average straight top to bottom flight to the Chaughan landing area lasts for about 30-45 minutes.A View of Jogindernagar region from a small road towards BILLING from Aehju...Road between Aehju and Bir is fine but the stretch of 10 kilometers was in very bad conditions. Its a very narrow road and rough at most places... Careful driving is very important because there are deep valleys on the other edge of this road... Initially its discouraging but after reaching BILLING, we found it worth it... A View of landing place BIR from the most famous paragliding destination in Dhauladhar range... The huge Dhauladar mountain range and Kangra valley with its panoramic views offer opportunities for high altitude flying for more than 190 kilometers. The Dhauladar range runs from Dalhousie in the North West of Himachal Pradesh in a curving arc of south-east to Mandi. Billing lies roughly midway between Dharamsala and Mandi and to the south west of Manali/Kullu valley.Tourist Vehicles @ BILLING, amazing para-gliding site in INDIA..
