Trekking Class X


Trekking can be viewed from two different stand-points; as an intense physical exercise, or an amazing and unique learning experience.

This year once again the teachers and the students of class X chose Billing Top as their camping spot and spent an overnight. It was an adventurous and a memorable trip filled with fun and laughter mixed with hard work and challenges. Students were able to seek first hand experiences with joy and had great time exploring various untouched environments there.Bir is a small village 

surrounded by big mountains famous for paragliding in himachal Pradesh. It is known for Hang gliding and paragliding both, which serves as a landing ground for paraglide. Bir-Billing in the Dauladhar mountain range is known as one of the finest aero sports sites in the world.

Their launching destination ‘Billing’ is at (8500 ft) on the Dhauladhar ranges and highest aero sport site, 14-km distance from Bir. Bir billing is one of the nature wonders. This is perfectly designed as a launch pad, has become a legend on the international paragliding circuits and a destination for world champion paragliding pilots. The green meadow directly above the villages of Bir and Chauntra is one of the best gliding sites in the world. The massive Dhauladhar mountain range and the kangra valley below with its panoramic views offer opportunities for high altitude up and down and all over the world flying for more than 200-km. ( The Bir Billing has been a favourite trekking spot for our school children for the past 6 years).

We are glad and proud that they all had an experiential moment packed with wide scope of learning and for their safe return back to school with sound health.
