  Shangri-La (香格里拉)


Located at the junction of Tibet, Sichuan and Yunnan, Shangri-La – Diqing Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture – corresponds fairly closely to the description of Shangri-La in the popular British novel "Lost Horizon," a mystical, harmonious valley. Shangri-La means the "sun and moon in heart" in Tibetan. The azure sky, extensive fog-enveloped snowy mountains, steep grand gorges and a boundless stretch of grassland add to its breathtaking beauty and the stunning scenery. The multi-ethnic culture also makes the place very attractive. In addition, the area abounds in natural resources from valuable plants to mineral deposits and wildlife.

How to get there:Take the long-distance bus from Lijiang.
