Shangri-La is a mountain paradise, with dense forests, alpine lakes, grasslands, and gorges distributed among the meadows and plains. A land endowed with breathtaking natural scenery and holy religious atmosphere.

Shangri-la is a Tibetan word meaning 'a land of sacredness and peace'.

Travel Information

Shangri-La or Xianggelila, formerly known as Zhongdian County, is the capital of Diqing Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture of Yunnan Province in southern China and is the location of the seat of the Diqing Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, bordering Sichuan to the northwest, north, and east.

Shangri-La is at an altitude of over 3,000 meters (9,800 ft). You may experience. So prepare well for high-altitude sickness and give yourself a couple of days to acclimatize.

My advise that you avoid winter, because the city practically shuts down and transportation is often halted by snow storms.
