It's a very interesting thread. But one thing I don't understand...what has Stockholm to do with China...?

Zhoingdian was renamed to "Shangri Lah" in 1996, because scientists had done some research work on where the lost paradise of Shangrilah was located and finally found, that is was located just next to the obscure town of Zhongdian. This is the official government's version.


Actually it was a clever marketing campaign to lure tourists further north on their route from Dali and Lijiang.



Back then, Lijiang was a shithole with unpaved roads and no proper accomodation.

It is famous for its monasteries. The biggest one is located some km outside of the town and will be shown later


The town has about 50,000 inhabitants.
