           The historical center of Bir is in Upper Bir (Bir proper). The Bir Tibetan Colony (often simply called "Colony" by locals) is at the west end of the village of Chowgan, about a 20-minute walk (or five-minute taxi) below Upper Bir. 

         Sherab Ling Monastery is a 50-to-70-minute walk (or 15-minute taxi) from Chowgan, or slightly longer from Upper Bir. The village of Ghornala is the location of the Dharmalaya Institute,  Ghornala Resort, a Sikh retreat centre, and a few cottages. It is about midway between Bir and Sherab Ling, and slightly to the north.
