A trip to Shangri-la 香格里拉 in YunNan province

Shangri-la (XiāngGéLǐLā) was a semi-fictional paradise depicted in the book 'Lost Horizon' by James Hilton. This town in YunNan province, with a great likeness to the fictional paradise that Hilton depicted, was renamed from ZhongDian to Shangri-la in 2001.
