Welcome to the peak of Dhauladhar mountains.
It was shot at Bir-Billing(2290m high), HP, India in Sept,08.
This site is regarded as among the best in the world for Paragliding.Billing (2290 m) is the take-off site and Bir (1400 m) is the village at the landing site.The road distance between the two is 14 km. Bir is sheltered by the Dhauladhar mountains and the ridges behind keep rising to 3000 mtrs, 4000 mtrs, 5000 mtrs + one after the other so a pilot can fly at 4000 mtrs and still watch the mountains tower above. Bir is a beautiful village surrounded by tea gardens and spectacular scenery, whereas Billing offers unique opportunities for high altitude and cross country flying and flights of 180 kms have been achieved from here.
We reached to hours late so, we missed the paragliding shoot.
