|Shangri-La is the new name of the Diqing County, Gyalthang (གྱང་ཐང་རྫོང་) in Tibetan. It is a part of Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture of Diqing (Deqen). Situated on the margin of the Tibetan Highlands at about 3380m in altitude, it is cold all year round. Many people felt sick and we had to stop here at the oxygen supply centres to get some oxygen boosters.|
