TIRED OF YOUR REGULAR SCHEDULE, COME EXPERIENCE INFINITE VASTNESS OF UNIVERSE WITH ONE OF THE RARE ASTRONOMICAL PHENOMENON i.e. "LYRIDS METEOR SHOWER"

The Lyrids is an average shower, usually producing about 20 meteors per hour at its peak. It is produced by dust particles left behind by a comet. The shower runs annually from April 16-25. It peaks this year on the night of the night of the 22nd and morning of the 23rd. These meteors can sometimes produce bright dust trails that last for several seconds. The first quarter moon will set shortly after midnight, leaving dark skies for the what could be a good show. Best viewing will be from a dark location after midnight. Meteors will radiate from the constellation Lyra, but can appear anywhere in the sky.

OUR CAMP VENUE:

Venue: Billing
It is a place in a village Bir, Himachal Pradesh. It is rightfully considered the "Paragliding Capital of the World". The charming Indian town of Bir is known worldwide as a destination for ecotourism and meditation studies, and is praised by visitors from all corners of the world for its natural beauty. Bir is situated in the foothills of the Indian Himalayas in the Kangra District of Himachal Pradesh, amidst paths winding through tea gardens into the forests and mountains to the north. The greater Bir area (which includes Billing, the Tibetan Colony in Chowgan, Ghornala, and Sherab Ling in Bhattu) is home to a diverse community of over a thousand Indian villagers, a Tibetan refugee settlement, and a sizable community of students of meditation and philosophy, volunteers, and seasonal waves of paragliders and other outdoors enthusiasts.
