The name Shangri La was coined by James Hilton is his book Lost Horizon. A fictional utopia hidden high in the Himalaya. Although Hilton never visited Tibet, it is though that the name was a mispronunciation of the Tibetan Shambhala, meaning Pure Land in Buddhism.

The highlight of the region is the drive through a landscape full of gorges, mountains, rivers and glaciers on the way and probably one of the finest mountain views in the world. Nowhere else in the Himalaya can you view 7000m peaks from the comfort of your bed or balcony!
Tibet and Mt. Everest
The short flight from Zhongdian to Lhasa is one of the most scenic anywhere. Layer after layer of gigantic peaks recede before your eyes and the descent into the Lhasa valley is just stunning.
Journey to the Rombuk Valley, which is the usual launching point for expeditions to climb Mt. Everest from the North, and you are truly gazing across the roof the world. From the Pang La Pass, five of the 8000m peaks can be seen.
Qomolangma – 8848m (29029ft ) – 1st
Lhotse – 8516m ( 27940ft ) – 4th
Makalu – 8485m (27838ft ) – 5th
Cho Oyo – 8201m ( 26906 ft ) – 6th
Shishapangma – 8027m (26335ft ) – 14th
There is no denying that it takes a certain effort to be there, but to be among these valleys and peaks is simply purification for the soul.
