About Zostel Bir
Zostel Bir is a quaint, activity-led backpacker hostel in the middle of a scenic Himalayan village which doubles up as a hub for adventure activities too.
Bir is a small, hidden village in the Kangra Valley – just a couple of hours away from the famous hill station of Dharamsala. Not yet popular as a mainstream tourist destination, Bir is home to the most beautiful Tibetan monasteries and Tibetan learning centres. However, this is the second most famous thing about Bir.
Bir-Billing is India’s best destination to paraglide. From the moment you are in the vicinity of the village, a glance upwards will show you tiny flying people, who took off from the paragliding take off site in Billing, which is 14 Km upwards from Bir, and are now flying over Bir and would land on the designated landing site in Bir.
Our paragliding hostel, Zostel Bir, is also best to explore a few mountain biking trails in and around Bir, which would cater perfectly to your need of being as close to nature as possible.
