Just returned from a memorable trip to Bir Billing. Memorable in multiple ways - the thrills of paragliding, the laid-back small-town life, the lovely countryside, sumptuous food or a luxurious stay at Colonel’s Resort.

Tucked away in village Chogan, close to Bir, Colonel’s Resort is a 25-acre expanse of greens amidst beautiful mountains – just the right place for peace and tranquility. Set up by Colonel JP Singh, the resort has been designed tastefully by his architect wife.

The 10 rooms in the Standard, Deluxe and Super Deluxe categories are spacious, airy and fitted with all amenities to make your stay comfortable.
The restaurant provided fresh and tasty buffets forf breakfast, lunch and dinner. What’s remarkable is that the Colonel’s entirely family is devoted to making your stay a comfortable and pleasant experience. From asking your choice of meals (they even served trout on request) to interaction with all guests at their respective dining tables.

The lawns are lush green with monsoon rains – a view that is available right from the bedside. It is blooming with flowers and the trees are laden with juicy pears, with tea gardens on the periphery. Horse riding is also available for the adventurous minded.

All the Colonel’s team members – from the Manager Titar Singh to restaurant and housekeeping staff were so eager to be of help, as would the Colonel himself – from arranging transfers from and to airport to suggesting the most experienced paragliding pilots and co-ordinating, that one felt spoilt for choice.

More than a resort, it is a home, away from home. Look forward to coming home again!

Room tip: All rooms overlook greens; however plan early to avoid disappointment as this is a small resort and occupancy is usually full.

We had the opportunity of spending five days at Colonel's Resort. Our stay was extremely comfortable and relaxing.
The resort made all the arrangements for us, right from airport pickup at Dharamshala and the drop. They even organised the Paragliding for us, including pick and drop from the resort.
The room was spacious, clean, comfortable and tastefully done. The staff was cordial and helpful. The room opened out to green exteriors, with ample fruit bearing trees.
The food was sumptuous, hygienic and tasty.
The icing on the cake was the personal touch by Col and Mrs JP Singh, who interacted with all the guests regularly, to make them comfortable.
Overall a nostalgic sojourn. I would definitely like to stay again and would highly recommend to everyone visiting Bir.

I had this amazing holiday at the Colonels Resort. I had informed the Colonel of my arrival and he most painstakingly guided me to his resort. I later on saw him actually guiding guests after they left the resort. That is the kind of fine detail he goes into.

The cottages of the resort are located in a pear orchard and the trees were laden with fruits and all kinds of birds visit the orchards- a bird watchers delight. The vegetables they serve at the resort are harvested from their garden and they are organic. The resort is surrounded by the Colonels Tea Gardens and you can get some pretty exotic tea at the resort. The garden if full of flowers roses petunia nasturtium and the most amazing Hydrangea. If you are fond of butterfly watching this is a place you should visit! The view from the resort is pretty stunning. All around the resort are some stunning stone sculptures.

The rooms were neat and clean. The entire resort is clean everything is in order - very army like.

The resort has two beautiful horses. One is Marwari and the other is a mountain pony. The Colonel and son are excellent horse riders and they organized a fantastic cross country trail ride. If you love horse riding this is a place you should visit.

Bir does attract people for paragliding but this is a hidden gem for cyclists. The Colonel knows some awesome cycling tracks . We had a wonderful time going on some tough mountain biking trails. If you are up to the challenge then ride up to Billing.

The food at the resort is at another level! The family that runs the place are present for every meal they are present to attend to every guest! that pretty unique.

If you want to get way from the city and just breathe fresh air this is the place to go to.

After a long COVID confinement for more than a year, all family decided to go for a nice one week vacation and to Bir famous for world class paragliding and monasteries in Himachal Pradesh and have a wonderful luxury stay in Colonel’s Resort at Bir, Baijnath. Our experience for a week staying in luxury at Colonel’s Resort of Colonel (Retd) J P Singh and his wife Pratibha has been awesome. The overall ambience, landscaping with beautiful lush green gardens, very spacious well lit rooms with nice pine wood flooring, dinning hall and front open spaces for morn evening tea and bonfire, overlooking hills and also watching paragliding all day, horse riding, morn even walking trails around the resort and amidst tea gardens, most delicious multi cuisine food and unparalleled hospitality has been superb. The family’s personal attention to guests, their guidance and help for all our visits including for paragliding has been our most memorable experience.
