Have you read James Hilton’s bestselling science fiction “Lost Horizon?” It has opened to the world a mysterious place called Shangri-La — true paradise on earth. The fictional country of Shangri-La described in the novel as an ideal world that bypasses death and disease and where people live in harmony. Instead of officials and the government, Lamaist servants lay the course of human life. There are no wars, no conflicts, no ailments. A place is a dream! In Diqing Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture of Yunnan in China, the unreal Shangri-La has become a reality. Before the release of the science fiction novel this place was called Zhongdian County. It was mainly done for the desire to attract tourists, who, by the way, did not take long to come.
