National Park
_GG***10Great place to go to see the beautiful nature and walk for a few hours. There is a bus from Old Town leaving every day at 9:30 am if you don't have your own car.

Snow Mountain
rwwishartThis is an amazing place and somewhere I’d recommend everyone visiting Shangri-La visit. The bus runs from near the old town in the morning and you arriving back by maybe 7pm. The walking parts of the national park are some of the most spectacular places you will see in Yunnan!

Tiger  Leaping  Gorge
2,563 Reviews
_GG***10Tiger Leaping Gorge is closed at the moment, it will be reopen in May/June 2021. I was in the area in December 2020 and couldn't do the walk as the road was closed. The road works will take a few more months. I will have to visit again.

Geological Sites
yy020Shangri-La repaired the road, the whole journey was dug up, all of them are small stones, the road is very difficult to walk, the experienced master to go one way 4.5 hours, the return trip can only take this road. He said that he would not go to the White Water Table next time he died. I will send up the scenery I saw, good looking is good, but suggest you wait a few years, repair the road again, by the way to Tiger Leaping Gorge Shangri-La section, very close.
Dukezong Ancient Town
1,015 Reviews
Ancient Settlement
rwwishartTry to book your hotel inside the old town. This is the best part of the city proper. It’s better to come outside the peak tourist season. We went in late November and it was great. The nights got a bit cold but there was lots of sunshine during the day and far fewer people. Wandering the temple complex on the hill takes about an hour.

Shangri-La Travel Tips

About Shangri-La

Shangri-La is located in the northwestern part of Yunnan in Diqing Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture. It is located at the confluence of the three provinces of Sichuan, Yunnan and Tibet. Shangri-La was formerly known as Zhongdian County. It was renamed due to its similarity to the heavenly location described in James Hilton's 1933 novel "Lost Horizon". In Tibetan, Shangri-la means “Shang Mountain pass”. It is a pure land that perfectly preserves the area’s natural ecology and traditional culture. The grasslands surrounded by snow-capped mountains are full of bright sunshine and fresh air. There are also clear and tranquil lakes as well as magnificent temples and friendly Tibetans.
