About 15 km from Bir is the beautiful valley of Billing. This is also a very popular paragliding site where “you ride up from Bir (1400 m) to Billing (2500 m) and get strapped on with a licensed pilot who can take you as high as 3000 meters and float alongside eagles and then slowly fly down towards the Bir landing ground.” says HolidayIQ scout Khaliq.
