Shangri-La is located in the northwest of Yunnan Province, with Tibet to its west and Sichuan to its east. It is known for its beautiful landscape and Tibetan culture. It sits at an altitude of over 3000 metres and altitude sickness is common amongst visitors. It's also very cold due to the high altitude.

Here are some photos:

Dancing in the square in the evening - mainly to kept warm I presume.

Thanks for looking.

it was safe, clean, people were hospitable and friendly. No begging or hustling at all. Inhabitants in these small towns and remote areas are so genuine and honest unlike the big cities. A very memorable and rewarding experience. cheers fernando
