The name Shangri-La has become ubiquitous in paradise. It calls to mind visions of picturesque landscapes untouched by human hands, the last vestige of truly pristine nature, where people live in harmony with the world around them.
In Tibetan, Shangri-La means the "sun and moon in heart", an ideal home only found in heaven.
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-capped Himalayan peak and gorge views.
