After a hiatus of six months, the most famous tourist activity of Bir Billing- paragliding is scheduled to resume in the town from 15th of September.
The government of Himachal Pradesh had suspended this adventure sport after the country went into lockdown in March due to the coronavirus pandemic. Although the state government had allowed the activity to resume in July first week, the ban imposed on transportation services didn’t support the idea.
In accordance with the recent revelations of the government of Himachal Pradesh, all kinds of paragliding will open up in Kangra Valley in an attempt to give a boost to the tourism of that region. This comes as great news for the adventure enthusiast, who had been desperately waiting for the world-famous Bir Billing paragliding to resume so that they can enjoy a thrilling post-COVID holiday amidst the Himalayan mountains. The resumption of paragliding in the town of Bir Billing is also expected to improve business for the travel agents and tour operators, who have been struggling a lot with their business operations since tourism came to a standstill.
Although Bir Billing hosts the International Paragliding World Cup Championship every year in the month of October, there is still no official confirmation about the event being held this year. However, Billing as an exotic paragliding take-off site and Bir as a landing spot are all set to welcome the adventure seekers for an adrenaline-pumping experience.
