FROM ONE TEMPLE TO ANOTHER … IN FLIGHT!
Bir Billing is a small, rural village at the feet of the Indiana Himalaya Mountains. The town is in the administrative confines of the Himachal Pradesh region; a fascinating region described by Lonely Planet as:
“Forest-covered valleys, majestic mountain passes, Buddhist monasteries, and the residence of the Dalai Lama: few Indian states can compare with Himachal Pradesh for its variety and the stunning beauty of its landscapes. Dominated by the imposing peaks of the Dhauladhar, the Pir Panjal, and by the western ranges of the Himalaya, Himachal Pradesh offers the ideal setting for many extreme sports, even if many travelers come here essentially attracted by the Tibetan Buddhist culture.”
