This was our second visit to Dharamshala and Macleoid Ganj. My son was in one week leave, and wanted to do paragliding. He searched this site Bir Biling. And we started from Dehradun early around 6a. m.

Route we choose, was dehradun - chandigarh - una- Kangra - Palampur, Bir. Later I realized we took long route. Shorter route would had been, after chandigarh to mandi to joginder nagar and then Bir. Reached Bir around 8.00pm. And stayed at a new property known as Mud monkey resort. Its a tented accommodation. We were provided 3 comfortable beds, in a tent. But washrooms were common.

We had simple dinner around 10.00pm. Our paragliding was booked for 5.30am, so we hit the bed. BIR is a small village slightly off the road on Jageswar - Joginder nagar route. Situated at 4500ft. And Billing is 18km uphill at 7900ft. Our Bolero arrived on time. Collected 3of us and a young couple. Collected parachutes and pilots on the way. And on a bumpy bolder kachcha Road this 18km journey took more than an hour.
