Shangri-la Trips and Travel Ideas
Shangri-la, a city in the northwest of Yunnan Province, is nestled in the Himalayan ranges. It is home to Tibetan people and in their language, Shangri-la means “the sun and the moon in heart”. It is true that this land was given snow-capped mountains, beautiful grasslands and the Asia’s mightiest rivers. In 1939, the British novelist, James Hilton, revealed its beauty to the world in his book “Lost Horizon". This Earthly Eden became to be known. It is a perfect destination for an escape from the city’s crowds and bustling. The high-speed railway from Lijiang to Shangri-la and onto Lhasa in Tibet will be completed in years. That will increase its popularity sharply. Come with ETripChina and see Shangri-la in your own eyes. We have insight tour of Shangri-la, Yunnan tours including Shangri-la, or long vacations from here onto Tibet.
