Where to stay in Shangri-La County

Most of the accommodations in Shangri-La County lie in the south of the main town. Centered around Guishan Park, the options here include budget hostels and hotels, and family-run guesthouses on atmospheric commercial streets. Look to the north of the main urban area for a selection of more upmarket establishments--some set in converted historic buildings, and others offering new-build luxury with pools, restaurants, and spas. The rural areas of scenic farmland north of town feature a couple of refined hotels with extensive views of the landscape that surrounds.
