5/5 Stars --
From $935 / night


In 1933, British author James Hilton wrote about a mystical earthly paradise in the mountains of Tibet that he dubbed ‘Shangri-La’ in his novel Lost Horizon. The utopia he depicted told of a mythical land isolated from the outside world " a ‘Garden of Eden’ where people enjoyed lengthened lives far beyond the normal lifespan. Although his musings were fictional, much was inspired by his readings of National Geographic accounts about several regions around the Himalayas.

One such place is Zhongdian, which has now formally renamed itself Shangri-La County to reflect its accurate likeness of the utopia Hilton described.

Our four-day, three-night ‘In Search of Shangri-La’ tour provides a glimpse at some of the most picturesque landscapes and terrains of Southwest China and includes visits to: Tiger Leaping Gorge, one of the deepest gorges in the world; Baishuitai, a collection of stunning limestone pools; Nixi, a small pottery town nestling on the mountain side; as well as spending time at Songzanlin Monastery and the Mingyong Glacier.
