All about Shangri-la

The mystic fictional land of Shangri-La may or may not have been inspired by this mostly Tibetan county, known until recently as Zhongdian, but the cobblestone streets and Tibetan architecture of Yunnan’s celebrated mountain towns reflect the charm of the legend. Outside of Tibet proper, visitors to Shangri-La don’t need a Tibet Travel Permit.
