Located at point where Tibet, Sichuan and Yunnan all meet, Shangri-La is the “Eden in dream”. 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. There the lofty and continuous snowy mountains, endless grasslands, steep and grand gorges, azure lakes and the bucolic villages always leave a deep impression on visitors. 

Highlights of Shangri-La

▪ Haba Snow Mountain Climbing: The upper part of the mountain is gentle but the lower part is filled with cliffs, which makes Haba Snow Mountain precipitous, magnificent and mysterious.
