Shangri La

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.

Sitting at 3200m/10500ft – we begin our acclimatisation process, but can enjoy a relaxed time here in sight of the stupendous Ganden Sumtseling Monastery – the largest Tibetan building outside of the Tibetan Autonomous Region.

Mt. Meili also known as Prince Snow Mountain. The continuous mountain ridges feature snowy peaks and the sun throws golden lights on the low-floating clouds which form various extraordinary shapes are truly spectacular.

Mt. Kawagebo 6740m / 22112 ft is highest in this mountain range

Mt. Mianzimu 6054m / 19862ft

Yading National Park is a mountain sanctuary in the far south west of sichuan province, and a very important pilgrimate site comprising three peaks sanctified as emanations of the three boddhisatvas by the 5th Dalai Lama.

Mt. Chenrezig 6032m / 19790ft

Mt. Jambeyang 5958m / 19574ft

Mt Chanadorge 5958m / 19547ft

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!
