In The Heart of the Himalayas
You arrived at the luxury resort of Shangri-La Hotel, Lhasa to find a copy
of Lost Horizon by James Hilton in your elegant room. This is the
legendary story of Shangri-La, a paradise for travellers high among the
Himalayas – and the inspiration for the hotel's brand.
On the cool patio of the Lodgers Lounge, overlooking the city and
majestic mountains, you enjoy a cup of tea while reading the book.
Afterwards, you adjust to Lhasa's altitude with a visit to the hotel's
unique oxygen lounge and reflexology pavilion.
Your first day in one of the world's highest cities begins at the nearby
Historic Ensemble of the Potala Palace, a breathtaking UNESCO World
Heritage Site and traditional residence of the Dalai Lamas.
From Lhasa, you can travel by car to each of Tibet's magnificent holy
lakes, which the concierge is delighted to arrange. Returning to the hotel
for dinner, you meet friends at Shambala for a taste of local barley wine
and authentic Tibetan-Yunnan tapas.
The following morning, your breakfast is prepared in the open kitchens
at Altitude, which offers delicious international fare throughout the day.
In the evening, you'll enjoy a relaxing massage in a private treatment
room at Chi, The Spa before retiring to the comfort of your room to
enjoy spectacular views of the Potala Palace and surrounding Himalayas.
As the temperature drops in the peaceful night, you marvel at your
experience in Lhasa so far. You have found your way to the original
