Find 'the Sun and Moon in the Heart'
4-Day Shangri-La Exploration Tour
Shangri-La is also known as 'the sun and moon in the heart' in Tibetan. This famous city is the paradise that James Hilton described in his novel and once you arrive and see its beauty, you’ll understand why! Loved by the local Tibetan people, this city is full of uniqueness and natural beauty. It is Shangri-La!
This 4-day Shangri-La tour will not only impress you with charming landscape and the holy Songzanlin Monastery but will also connect you with local people. (zd-1)
Tour 'Wow' Points
Visit a Nonpublic Dormitory of Songzanlin Monastery
Talk with a local religious leader in his dormitory's study room, which is not normally open to tourists. If you are lucky, you might meet a living Buddha!
Walk in a Tibetan Family’s House
Avoid the commercial house tours like the one near the Pudacuo National Park and visit a traditional Tibetan family’s house near quiet Napa Lake. There, you will enjoy some homemade Tibetan snacks and friendly conversation.

Learn how to paint a tangka and take the good luck and energy from Shangri-La back home with you.

Best experience ever!
Our tour guide Mervyn was extremely knowledgeable. We had to change our plans due to a virus closure and she found other activities that we loved! By the end of the trip we felt like we had made a close friend and would enjoy spending time together again.
