Signature Trips
  • Windrush Rising

Cycle, Trek, and Fly with us across McLeod Ganj, Bir and Billing! We start this adventure on our feet before moving on to wheels and finally wings, as we take in the sights, sounds and smells of this region. Nature is the perfect antidote to city life and that's exactly what we get here. We'll get immersed in the peaceful vibes of India’s Little Lhasa as we trek through villages, cycle down slopes and go paragliding, meet travellers from over the world and learn a bit about spirituality.

Meet your host

Our Alpha Mike Foxtrot (military slang for Adios, motherf*****s!) program is the best job in the world: 3 hosts travel for 6 months straight! 

You’ll be travelling on this one with Chief Alpha. Like all our chiefs, Alpha’s a die-hard travel junkie, and has shed the city-slicker persona to go exploring with you. We’ve heard Alpha’s trips are all non-stop parties – lots of laughing and harmless prank-playing – sure to be a hoot!

Trip Highlights

What makes us different!

We'll begin our adventure on foot with a trek to different villages where we soak in the Dhauladar range, meet the locals and have a meal by a hill. 

We’ll pick up the pace as we clamber on our two-wheeled steeds to get to Bir. Imagine gentle slopes, stunning vistas of surrounding peaks and whistling breeze for company. No need to bother with headphones – we have songs of Himalayan birds as we ride along!

We’ll go paragliding down from Bir to Billing, an adventure that is as serene as it is blood-pumping! It offers a new perspective on the world below, with the wind whistling through our ears as we sail down to earth. 

We'll be experiencing the culture of this place through two different but overlapping lenses - the traditional Tibetan / Buddhist and the international. We'll visit monasteries and Tibetan institutes, do some local shopping, meet the people of the region but also hang with international travellers from all over. We'll eat at places that give us a glimpse into both these cultures and who knows, make a few new friends!

We've curated the stay so that we are spending our time in fun, quirky places! From an eco-resort to local guesthouses to a campsite, we're doing it all. 

 

“Om Mani Padme Hum”.. the chant floats through our mind as you sip on hot butter chai, conversing with monks in the Tibetan enclave of Mcleod Gunj! To get more immersed in the spiritual energies of this region we'll be visiting a monastery and even a nunnery of possible.
