Homestays and Lodges

There are also a number of home-stays both in Bir Tibetan Colony and the nearby Indian villages. These usually do not take advance bookings, and in some cases, very limited English is spoken. Ask around on arrival – for Tibetan home-stays there are several (unsigned) on the road running downhill from the center of Bir Colony; Indian home-stays include Manoj Home Stay on the landing site road (tel.9816847037) and Hari Om Home Stay (9882917238) nearby, in the lane just past Men Tsee Khang.

Also, for those on a budget, some of the cafes in the town center (Delek Cafe/Lodge, Emaho Cafe) have basic rooms for rent – again, these would have to book on arrival.
