    Shangri La

    temple

    Shangri La does not really exist.
    It's an imaginary place described in a novel written by James Hilton.This does not automatically makes Zhongdian, today told to be the real Shangri La, a tourist trap, I myself came here in a certain way, with the aim of following the myth.
    Problems come if you want to build a real Shangri La for tourists destroying the original Zhongdian and this has been my first impression when we entered the town in the night.
    The dark of the nearby landscapes substituted by the coloured lights of this modern temple with a sort of huge cylinder tower moving around itself.

    Unique Suggestions: Walk around the small streets of the old town, taste some local food, take a bike and go out of the centre.

    Fun Alternatives: Just come before it's too late.
