From Billing the mountain range runs all the way to Dharamsala by separating the Kangra district distrc from Chamba. To the north of the meadow is the high peaks and to the south the plains. The fall from the meadow is about one kilometre and an average straight top to bottom flight to the Chaughan landing area lasts for about 30-45 minutes.A View of Jogindernagar region from a small road towards BILLING from Aehju...Road between Aehju and Bir is fine but the stretch of 10 kilometers was in very bad conditions. Its a very narrow road and rough at most places... Careful driving is very important because there are deep valleys on the other edge of this road... Initially its discouraging but after reaching BILLING, we found it worth it... A View of landing place BIR from the most famous paragliding destination in Dhauladhar range... The huge Dhauladar mountain range and Kangra valley with its panoramic views offer opportunities for high altitude flying for more than 190 kilometers. The Dhauladar range runs from Dalhousie in the North West of Himachal Pradesh in a curving arc of south-east to Mandi. Billing lies roughly midway between Dharamsala and Mandi and to the south west of Manali/Kullu valley.Tourist Vehicles @ BILLING, amazing para-gliding site in INDIA..
