Bir Billing is one of the best flying destination in the world. Tandem paragliding to the 'Big Face' is one of the longest flights offered, which is exclusively curated by and for Zostel, it is very near to cross-country flying and needs special skills to fly such distance at a much higher altitude, only a few pilots are doing it tandem. We have the best team of top pilots with international ranking for long tandem flights. On this adrenaline pumping flight other than the spectacular views of the snow covered Dhauladhar range, if lucky one can also spot the twin town of Dharamshala/Mcleodganj on a clear day. To make your adrenaline tank overflow, we have also added aerobatics wherever possible during the flight. So tighten you harness to the blue skies!!
