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 small but growing international population (including students of meditation and philosophy, volunteers, and seasonal waves of paragliders and other outdoors enthusiasts).
