I found Shangri-la...

Many passes between Litang and Shangri-La
Many passes between Litang and Shangri-La

Shangri-la is really not very easy to access. At least not from the north: After seven passes on 450km from Litang, climbing 6'600m in six days I finally reached Shangri-la. These days I was cycling through beautiful, hilly and very remote areas of the Himalayan forested valleys. There were more or less no guesthouses or hotels on this stretch and camping was very easy in these high coniferforests. Although tough riding sometimes definitely one of the highlights of my journey.


My first impression of Shangri-la: A lot seems to have changed since James Hilton's times... ;) But still a nice town to hang out some days, clean the bicycle after dusty roads, relax the tired legs from only going up and down the past six days and extend the visa before Chinese holidays beginn on the first of October.

    Hi Bruderherz
    Immer wieder schön, deinen Reiseblogg durchzustöbern. Lehrerkollegen wollen dich schon anheuern, um von deiner Reise zu berichten. Einer ist total begeistert und kann's kaum erwarten, wie ich übrigens, bis du wieder zu hause bist.

    Hallo Philipp

    Nach Hong Kong war das bestimmt ein riesiger Kontrast - oder umgekehrt auch, oder? Es ist schön deinen Bericht zu verfolgen. Fast hätte man das Gefühl dabei zu sein. Natürlich ohne die Strapazen.
    Noch weiterhin alles Gute für deine Weiterreise. Hast du das Buch übrigens gefunden?

    Wow habe erst vorgestern gekuckt, ob schon etwas neues von Dir zu lesen ist und jetz Shangri La. Diesen Leckerbissen spare ich mir für heute abend auf. Das möchte ich in Ruhe lesen können. Du schreibst übrigens sehr gut und lebendig, es macht nir grosse Freude Deine Berichte zu lesen. Vielen Dank dafür und für die echt tollen Fotos.
    Als Lehrer würde ich Dich auch engagieren, das gibt doch den Jungen Visionen, dass man sich das Leben selbst heute noch interessant gestalten kann. Alles Gute Gassho martin st.

    Its like you read my thoughts! You appear to grasp so much about this, such as you wrote the e book in it or something. I think that you simply can do with some percent to pressure the message house a bit, however other than that, this is fantastic blog. A fantastic read. I will definitely be back.

    Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates. I've been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.
