Description

Yunnan is the most southwestern province in China, with the Tropic of Cancer running through its southern part. Famous for its towering mountains and plentiful rivers, abundant natural resources as well as many ethnic groups, Yunnan is situated on a plateau and borders on the eastern section of the Himalayas where Shangri-la area is located, thus it seems to be the last step to Tibet, the "roof of the world".

 

Synonymous with utopia, Shangri-La was first used in 1933, coined by the British author James Hilton in his novel Lost Horizon. Characterized by towering snow-capped mountains, blue moon, lush forests, vast gorges, idyllic lakes, mysterious monastery and immortal people. Shangri-La is described by Hilton as a mystical, harmonious valley, gently guided from a lamasery. It has become synonymous with any earthly paradise, and particularly a mythical Himalayan utopia – a permanently happy land, isolated from the outside world. In the novel Lost Horizon, the people who live at Shangri-La are almost immortal, living years beyond the normal lifespan and only very slowly aging in appearance. The word also evokes the imagery of exoticism of the Orient, arouses a certain curiosity and mystery whenever it is heard.
