Paragliding

As free as a bird riding the warm thermal currents of the air is perhaps the closest man has ever come to sailing the skies. Seemingly at will you dip and wheel high over the hills and valleys.

The bald peak of Billing, above the Buddist monastery of Bir in Kangra is considered to be amongst the best sites in the world for para gliding. This is the venue for national and international rallies and Himachal tourism hosted the Pre-World Cup rallies here in 2003 and 2004. Other places where the sport is possible are Bundla Dhar near Bilaspur, select spots in the Kullu valley and at Intakali in the Pabbar valley near Rohru.

Himachal Pradesh
..................................................................................................................................................................................
Capital city - Shimla
Ideal time to Visit - March to June.
Spring (May/June)- You would get lots of snow but roads are at worst, lots and lots of tourists and obviously a costly trip with escalated price.
Monsoon (July/Aug) - Ladakh/Lahaul/Spiti is historically there is no rain but traffic is high.
Autumn (Sep/Oct) - Roads are at the best but almost no snow enroute. Weatherwise I like this season personally the most, the weather after monsoon recedes remain crystal clear with least haze/dust/mist and gives excellent visibility for watching peaks.
Winter (Nov-April) - At your own risk without any tourists, excellent bargain and budget trip is likely. Also for special interest tours like say Chaddar trek of Zanskar, this is the time to go.
