  • Why Us
Located in the midst of three rivers, Shangri-La is a sacred scenic region blessed with majestic mountains. In Tibetan Shangri-La means the “sun and moon in heart”, an ideal home only found in heaven. The lofty and continuous snowy mountains, endless grasslands, steep and grand gorges, azure lakes and the pastoral villages in this area always leave a deep impression on visitors. Shangri-La is inhabited by many different ethnic groups, with the Tibetans comprising the majority of the population. Like this it is a great opportunity to experience Tibetan life, religion and cuisine, if you cannot make it to Tibet.

Deqin is to the very north of Yunnan on the borders of Tibet to the west, Sichuan to the east and Myanmar to the southwest. It is at the border with Tibet, which is closed to foreigners. At an altitude of 3550m, Deqin is a small Tibetan town and the administrative center for this remote region, 80% of its inhabitants are Tibetan. The main attraction in Deqin is the grand Meili Snow Mt.(Kawakarpo) and Shangri-La mystique.
