  • This is the beautiful scenery of the white stone, being dissolved calcium carbonate flowing fountain. It seems white terraced rice fields. Approximately 100 km in Shangri-La, it took more than two hours and a half by car. It is China's largest flower fountain terrace. Known as the cradle of Naxi culture. A steep climb up whitewater and when we arrived, so the local people having a horse ride. And the sound of flowing water arrived hakusui-white gradually grows, you can explore. Is a place you will want to take a photo. Up a narrow road winding on the road beyond the mountains so pretty down on repeat. Had a herd of goats, to the ethnic minorities who often met! Ethnic costume, a simple smile, or ambiance is the very best. Too long on the road meeting with the landscape of Shangri La is a special place. Both toilets and shop on the way there, so watch out.

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.
