I had considered Zhondian and area for a trip on its own. The site of the fictional Shangrila (re: James Hilton) seems to be something of a mystery I would like to explore. I understand the current town with that name won it in a competition :)

The Mosuo intrigue me but seem to be held in rather low regard by the Chinese. My wife wasn't as enthusiastic as me to explore that idea, she seems to prefer having a husband. The air is a little thin at 3200 mt but I survived a trip at similar altitudes in Jiuzhaigou and Huanglong. I believe you reach 4000mt on the journey there.

Don't miss Shangri-la, and Tiger Leaping Gorge, it's not far from Lijiang.

Wish to see your travel log.
