Shangri-La Hostel

Hostel Shangri-La

Hostelling International

Welcome to our hostel

Lao Shay Youth Hostel Shangri-la, newly opened in January 2009, is surrounded by a boundless meadow in the Tibetan Areas merely 6kms away from the county of Shangri-la.

For your convenience, we offer free arrival pick-up service from Shangri-la Airport, long-distance bus terminal as well as other in-town areas. (Free arrival pick-up service from 08:00 - 22:00, otherwise there will be a charge the same as taxi charges)

We provide simple but quality service while you breathe in the stunning views and enjoy the Tibetan settlements in our neighborhood without the disturbance from restaurants, bars or shops in close proximity.

All year long, the meadow in front of the hostel is scattered with flocks of yak, pigs and sheep. Flowers are in their full blossoms in the summer, while blushing chamaejasme discloses its fiery nature in fall. In the winter, the same piece of meadow covers itself with a silvery white blanket and even houses will find themselves having a newly-formed layer of icing. This is the perfect land for photographers and those who appreciate the beauty of nature.

Most are attracted to Shangri-la by the 'Lost Horizon' of James Hilton and wonder where they should go in this piece of heavenly land. Many left in great disappointment after touring a few tourist attractions and spending a couple of nights in town, feeling they have not seen the sacred heaven they have been dreaming for.

We suggest you to slow down your pace, let the tranquil aura of Shangri-la embrace you and bring you to the world you have never dreamed of: open your eyes to see the vast meadow, the nameless pastures where no buses or guides will lead you to; look at the lights reflected on the curves of the mountains at dawn and dusk; experience the local Tibetan lives and have a laugh with the friendly Tibetans.

For sure you will bring home more than what you expected.

Landscape is graet and you are closer for trekking. You can see a big lots vultures, cattle of yacks and Naxi. When I was there problems with Internet and electricity.
