Frequently Asked Questions


Private Buses from Delhi will drop you at Main Market, Chougan.
Bir Nest is 2 KMs from there. You can either take a taxi available for ₹100 on request or take a walk towards [Upper] Bir.

If you are coming via HRTC bus then you will reach Bir bus stand.
Take a walk downhill towards Chougan Main Market, Bir Nest is about 500m from there.

The duration of your flight depends a lot on the thermals in the air and the air-current. Thus, the best time to take a tandem-flight is during the summers when there are good thermals in the air and the winds are strong (not a problem for experienced pilots that you go with in tandem). The best time to learn paragliding though is post monsoon during the winters (the wind is more stable and is beginner friendly).

The flight might get cancelled in case of bad weather (strong winds or rain) and thus we don't take bookings from 1st July to 15th September.

For the maximum flight time, you should try to do it from 9 AM to 3 PM since the thermals are maximum during that time. Some people also prefer to watch the sunset during their flight, but the flight might be smaller due to the absence of thermals during sunset.

Bir Nest
Backpacker hostel in Bir

The hostel is named Bir Nest since we believe in giving a home-like feel to all the flyers of Bir (Birds fly, nest is home -- how poetic!).

We offer one of the best sunset viewing points in Bir, 360° view of the valley, homely food. We are a couple of conversation-hungry backpackers who ran away from the city life, and opened up a hostel to meet new people everyday.
