Day 10-20- It's time for some thermalling :)
Get introduced to the art and science of thermalling. Undergo assisted flights as you learn to catch your own thermals. Continue kiting practice in the afternoons. Continue theory lessons and self-study.
Day 20-30- Continue thermalling with more independence. Build more air time as you attempt 1-2 hour flights. Continue theory lessons and self-study. Explore thermals at different ridges and if possible, try your first mini-cross country flight.

Note- Day wise plan will depend on your individual learning curve and weather.
A typical day will have flights from around 9am-12pm. Spend afternoons practising kiting on the ground.
Pursuing the course with WFH is possible. Timings can be made flexible.
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 :)
