Overnight in Bir.
After a lazy start of the day, we will start our scenic drive to Barot valley. Barot is straight out of a fairytale! Famous for its trout farming, one can catch his/her own fish too. Few activities like fishing, river crossing, etc. are planned for the day.

Today, we will proceed to the village of Badagram from Barot by cab. Badagram is the base village of our trek. The trail, starting from a village, will pass through deodar, pine forests, finally reaching another village of Rajgundha. It’s a very easy yet uphill trek of 4 km. Evenings will be spent by the bonfire with millions of stars to company. Stay in a camp.
Today’s trek is a long one. Starting from Rajgundha, we will pass through thick forests of Deodar, finally reaching the famous paragliding site of Billing. Night stay in a camp.
After 2 days of trek, today is a downhill day. For all you adventure junkies, from Billing, if the weather permits then you can choose to do paragliding. We will start our downhill trek from Billing for Bir. We will reach by mid-afternoon. Bir has some of the most amazing cafes at such peaceful locations. Evening is free to spend leisurely in one of the quaint little cafes in Bir watching sunset. Bir is surely one of those places which has most beautiful, calming sunsets one can experience.
