Bir Paragliding Photoblog 

The things that scare, the only way to defeat obstacles is to face them.

I believe it refers to every situation in life and the same while deciding upon Bir Paragliding.

Y’all understand what disturbs the most. It’s the thinking.

If you were somehow able to control the worry of thinking, then nothing is impossible.

I feel that let’s get on to the Bir Paragliding Photoblog without further talk.

But, 

Before starting any Adventure sport, checking all the essential protective gear is mandatory.

 

A comprehensive check of the equipment is damn necessary to assure safety before progressing.

The one above the picture is called Tandem Paragliding. The Expert pilot will be there with you while Paragliding.

Let me share my experience with Y’all –

While preparing, the pilot informed me to run when he speaks. The feet were shaking, and the piolet reassured that nothing will happen, don’t bother much.

I gained self-confidence that there’s an experienced pilot with me. It’s all in the mind that makes me worry.

Without thinking further, the piolet says run and 1,2,3, we are off the plain surface in the air.

Cost of Tandem Paragliding

The price of tandem Bir Paragliding is around Rs.2000 – Rs.2500 per person for a 20-25 min approx in the air.

Let me share a pleasant part with Y’all, 

The people who were previously hesitant to do Paragliding truly end up doing it twice the same day. 

Because they were somehow able to overcome their fear of height instead (fear of height) converted to (fall in love with the Paragliding).

Upon conversation with one of the pilots in Bir Billing, he stated that he was a Pilot for a long, and his age was around 18. So, it’s like getting self-dependent because Paragliding is a learning opportunity for the local youth. Some of them were competing at the State level also.

The Paragliding world in 2020 at Bir Billing was about to happen but got canceled due to the COVID pandemic.

What is the Best Time to do Paragliding

I had spent plenty of days in Bir Billing. 

There was not a single day where I had not gone to the Paragliding landing site to see the paragliders over the sunset.

I believe that there’s no best time of the day to do Paragliding. 

But one thing I loved the most is the Sunset at Bir Billing is just astonishing. So, sunset could be the reason for you to try the Paragliding near about the Sunset time.

The best time could also be determined by the wind because the wind and the direction will play an imperative role during Paragliding.

Leave the wind phenomenon upon the skilled piolets because they know way better than us. You just have to concentrate on the moment of flying.

Important Tips before Paragliding

Some important tips that will be useful for you from my experience whenever you do a Paragliding –  

  1. Try to make a small conversation with your pilot before taking off. It will be a beneficial way to make your body comfortable & mind relaxed.
  2. Listen to the pilot instructions carefully.
  3. Don’t look downward before Paragliding because you will make yourself scared even more further.

I believe these are sufficient enough to go. After all, you are going to experience life inspiration & not in an examination hall.

Let’s look at further Photographs to excite you –

Damn! I will be happy if you let me the Photograph you loved the most.

Bir Billing is close to heart & Paragliding experience even closer.

Love & passion makes people achieve the unbelievable.

It’s just a matter of few seconds that period between taking off and had taken off is enough to give goosebumps and a lifelong experience.

Enjoy your time before Paragliding & after Paragliding because during your Paragliding the jaw-dropping views would not allow you to look anywhere else but down.

Apart from Paragliding, there are so many things to do in Bir Billing.

    Hey Vansh! This article is written so beautifully. My paragliding experience was somewhat similar. I was a little scared in the beginning but once I was in the air, the experience was something I will never be able to properly pen down. I believe people have to experience it for themselves to understand the feeling of being suspended in the air!

    Beautiful photos! The sunset one is definitely my favourite – I’m partial towards sunset/sunrise photos.
    We were supposed to go to Bir in 2019 but that weekend was a washout – rain wise and our plan got cancelled. Hope to go there soon.
