   Situated in the northwest Yunnan Hengduan Mountains on the southern Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, 709 kilometers from Kunming, Shangri-la means ‘the sun and the moon in the heart’ in Tibetan, referring to a place of idyllic beauty. As a loanword it appeared first in 1933 in the novel ‘The Lost Horizon’ by a British writer, James Hilton. The book sold very well after its publication. Ti was especially popular after the Hollywood shot a film of it, whose popular theme song ‘This Beautiful place Shangri-la’ helped ‘Shangri-la’ become better known. Within Shangri-la, there are magnificent sights such as: Three Parallel lowing Rivers, the world-famous Gorge, the highest peak in Yunnan, Buddhist Temples and lamaseries, the birthplace of Dongba culture, and many other wonderful scenes. There are also a national nature reserve, three provincial reserves, and a historic and cultural relic under national protection. For the people who have sought for Shangri-la tens of years, the good news is at present most sights open to tourists. But they are mainly within Diqing Tibet Autonomous Prefecture.
