Day 6-7- Time for some more flying. Complete 2 solo flights everyday (based on weather conditions).
Day 8- Pack bags and bid goodbye to Bir. Drive to Dharamshala airport with some great memories, flying videos that will make anyone jealous and most important, a new hobby that will stay with you for life :)
A typical day of paragliding is from 11am-5pm. You can buy lunch around the landing site. Note- Timing is highly volatile and subject to local wind condition.
Post paragliding, get back to the hotel, refresh and spend the evening walking around the Tibetan colony of Bir. Enjoy a meal of momos and thukpa, explore monasteries, or simply hang around. There are plenty of cafes serving great food and some with live music too :)
