    Mcleod Gunj

Cycle, Trek, and Fly across McLeod Gunj, Bir and Billing! We start off on foot before slowly progressing to two wheels, and finally wings, as we take in the sights, sounds and smells of Mcleod Gunj, Bir and Billing. Nature is the perfect antidote to city life, and we know how to get a dose! Let’s get immersed in the peaceful vibes of India’s Little Lhasa before we trek, cycle and go paragliding!

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!

“Om Mani Padme Hum”. The chant floats through your mind as you sip on your hot butter chai, conversing with monks in the Tibetan enclave of Mcleod Gunj. Your feet lead you through thick forests of oak, rhododendron and cedar, and bubbling brooks welcome you to take a breather and bring out the picnic basket. We’ll trek to hidden hamlets and explore the foothills of the Himalayas.

We’ve picked up the pace a bit, but the route is largely gentle, with no steep climbs. We clamber upon our two-wheeled steeds and pedal towards Bir! There’s plenty of stunning vistas of the surrounding peaks for company. And don’t bother with headphones – you’ll have the songs of Himalayan birds playing loud and clear as you ride along.

Now it’s time to don those wings! We’ll go paragliding down from Bir to Billing, an adventure that is as serene as it is blood-pumping. It offers an entirely new perspective on the world below, with the wind whistling through your ears as you sail down to earth.
