_GG***10Great place to go to see the beautiful nature and walk for a few hours. There is a bus from Old Town leaving every day at 9:30 am if you don't have your own car.

Snow Mountain
rwwishartThis is an amazing place and somewhere I’d recommend everyone visiting Shangri-La visit. The bus runs from near the old town in the morning and you arriving back by maybe 7pm. The walking parts of the national park are some of the most spectacular places you will see in Yunnan!
Tiger  Leaping  Gorge
4.6/5

Canyon
_GG***10Tiger Leaping Gorge is closed at the moment, it will be reopen in May/June 2021. I was in the area in December 2020 and couldn't do the walk as the road was closed. The road works will take a few more months. I will have to visit again.
Shika Snow Mountain

Snow Mountain
HoooooIt was stunning! liked the top of the mountain and a small village in a valley.
Gadansong Zanlin Temple
4.6/5
331 Reviews
Temple
rwwishartTake the walk around the lake before going into the temple complex. You will find better spots for panoramas and the light is better when you go in the morning. Photos inside the temple halls are not allowed, so get what you can from the outside. Visiting takes maybe 3 hours if you want to wander over everything.
Baishui Terrace
4.4/5

yy020Shangri-La repaired the road, the whole journey was dug up, all of them are small stones, the road is very difficult to walk, the experienced master to go one way 4.5 hours, the return trip can only take this road. He said that he would not go to the White Water Table next time he died. I will send up the scenery I saw, good looking is good, but suggest you wait a few years, repair the road again, by the way to Tiger Leaping Gorge Shangri-La section, very close.

China is an enormous country. The world’s most populous nation is a case study in contradiction. Gleaming skyscrapers dot the Shanghai skyline while the garrison at Jiayuguan has guarded the country’s western approaches since the Ming Dynasty. Time seems frozen in Shangri-La, deep in remote Yunnan Province. Beijing’s modern architecture rises above centuries old, densely-packed hutongs. Everywhere you go you find a country constantly moving towards the future yet never managing to escape its past. In this short guide, we provide our recommendations to those places that captured our imagination. Places that stuck in our heart and minds long after we left. This is our insider’s travel guide to contemporary China.

Napa Lake: Lake in summer and meadow in winter Located in the northwestern part of Shangri-La County, Napa Lake is a seasonal alpine lake. During the rainy summer and autumn it is a large lake, surrounded by a small swamp pasture. The dry winter and spring months see the lake gradually shrink and turn into a large swamp meadow, called “Yila Grassland”.

About Shangri-La

Shangri-La is located in the northwestern part of Yunnan in Diqing Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture. It is located at the confluence of the three provinces of Sichuan, Yunnan and Tibet. Shangri-La was formerly known as Zhongdian County. It was renamed due to its similarity to the heavenly location described in James Hilton's 1933 novel "Lost Horizon". In Tibetan, Shangri-la means “Shang Mountain pass”. It is a pure land that perfectly preserves the area’s natural ecology and traditional culture. The grasslands surrounded by snow-capped mountains are full of bright sunshine and fresh air. There are also clear and tranquil lakes as well as magnificent temples and friendly Tibetans.
