Billing India, Vol Biv

This Vol Biv trip will be lead by Debu Choudhury, who knows these mountains like the back of his hand.

Designed to be more adventurous, this Vol Biv course will focus on landing out for bivvy adventures and continuing from there the next morning.

We will fly XC for the first 5 days on the front ridge and then start the camping out adventures over the next 7 days of flying, varying from 1 night and extending them to upto 3 nights out. Possible options would be 360, Dharamsala, Parashar Lake, Hobbitton, and some sites over the back; decided by the guides, based on pilot skill level and conditions.

This course is designed to give you an insight into the adventure and thrill of Vol Bivving. To make the most out of this course and the Himalayan landscape, you need to have flown with us in Billing before and be very comfortable with top landings in tricky conditions. For the vol-bivs, you will have to bring and fly with your own gear. Once you book, Stefan will guide and recommend you on the best gear options.

We will all live, eat, sleep and breath paragliding for this time, flying XC every day and setting tasks to maximise the conditions of each day, and to push your flying ability within your comfort level.

As this trip is quite intense, we run it on a 1:3 guide to client ratio, and is priced at £1,350 for the 12 days.

All accommodation (beyond the vol biv nights) and retrieve/transport if required, to paid as per actuals.

Duration : 12 Days (5 days xc + 7 days vol biv)
Fees : £1,350

Dates : Oct 17 - 28, 2022

Trip Checklist

01.

Flying Kit


We assume that you will arrive with a functional paraglider, harness and reserve parachute, vario/gps.

We recommend you bring along your own trackers (Inreach / Spots). If you do not have a tracking device then let us know and we will provide one for you.

It is very cold at base, we recommend flying in thick down jackets, multiple layers and thick or ideally heated gloves. On the ground, days are warm and nights are quite chilly, so bring adequate warm gear.

02.

Insurance


It is essential that you have travel insurance which covers you in respect of the following :
      
1. Medical Treatment
2. Medical Repatriation
3. Search & Rescue by helicopter

We will hand out a central grab sheet form, where we would like all pilots to fill in their emergency contact details, insurance policy and contact numbers.

This grab sheet also mirrors all the Risk Acceptance sign offs that are a part of this document. Please give it a good read and make sure you understand and accept the risk involved.
