Shangri-La County is a primarily Tibetan county in northwestern Yunnan province, People's Republic of China and is the location of the seat of the Dêqên Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture.
In the second half of the 20th century the county was called Zhongdian County, but was renamed in 2001 after the fictional land of Shangri-La in the 1933 James Hilton novel Lost Horizon, in an effort to promote tourism in the area. The original Tibetan population refers to this place by its traditional name Gyalthang, meaning "Royal plains".
