Zhongdian Shangri-la, China, oct 22 - oct 24, 2011

Zhongdian, nowadays better known as Shangri-la, has a beautiful old town. We could get a taste of Tibetan culture and architecture, visit the stunning buddhist Sumtseling monastery, enjoy the view from the peaceful 100 chicken temple above town, see lots of yaks and breath some thin air at an al`titude of 3200 meters. We wish we had a bit more time to explore more of this beautiful plateau at the foot of Tibet. But there's always a next time. :)
