About the event

The name Shangri-La has become ubiquitous with paradise.

It calls to mind visions of picturesque landscapes untouched by human hands, a last vestige of truly pristine nature, where people live in harmony with the world around them.

It’s a place cloaked in mystery, part fantasy, part reality, where the legend is older than the place itself.

In Tibetan, Shangri-La means the "sun and moon in heart", an ideal home only found in heaven.

Since it first appeared in British novelist James Hilton's Lost Horizon in the 1939, it has been associated with the mystique of a place which could not possibly exist here on Earth.

For years, people are confused as to Shangri-La’s whereabouts, it was not until the year 1996 that people finally realize that it is in the Deqin Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture in China's southwestern Yunnan Province. And its veils began to be revealed.

In this 7-day tour, you’ll fully explore the mysterious Shangri-La town, to breathe in the Tibetan world, a perfect choice especially if you don’t have the chance to visit Tibet.

You’ll take a light trek at one of the world’s best trails – Tiger Leaping Gorge, taking in the unbeatable snow-caped Himalayan peak and gorge views;

you’ll go beyond the popular sights to see what few people see and to get a real encounter with the local Tibetan culture and people at Xiaozhongdian and cook a meal with the locals at their farmhouse;

You’ll hike to the legendary Balagezong Grand Canyon,explore the stunning Blue Moon Valley, wonder into the old Yuhu Village surrounded by the Himalaya mountains, lost yourself at the fairytale world of Napa Lake Natural Reserve, and so much more….

This is not just a tour to see the sites, but a journey to truly find your inner peace and tranquility.
