Picture taken in Shangri-La (also called Zhongdian or "Jiantang" in Tibetan), a Chinese town located at point where Tibet, Sichuan and Yunnan all meet.
Shangri-La is the "Eden in dream". Since it first appeared in British novelist James Hilton's Lost Horizon in the 1939, it has been associated with the mystique of a place which could not possibly exist here on Earth. In Tibetan, Shangri-La means the "sun and moon in heart", an ideal home only found in heaven.
