Come to a land of mystical snowy mountains, deep gorges, primeval forests, wide grasslands and fertile valleys. Immense natural beauty basks under the bluest of skies in the Diqing Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture of China’s Yunnan Province. Here, modern-day seekers can discover their own slice of paradise.
The hotel’s name was inspired by the word “highland”, which refers to the topography of the very special region in which it is situated. The unique experiences to be enjoyed here are truly immersive and genuine.
The Hylandia experience begins the moment you arrive at the hotel. Buttermilk tea and mountain walnuts dipped in local organic honey await you in the Wisdom Room, a library where you enjoy a smooth check-in by the hotel's staff. After the warm welcome, you fall asleep in your spacious guestroom, which features Tibetan and Yunnan elements, anticipating the journey that awaits you the next day.
The following morning, you are ready to explore the rich history and spectacular natural landscapes of the region. Three UNESCO World Heritage Sites lie nearby, including the famous Tiger Leaping Gorge and the Meili and Haba Snow mountains. Songzanlin Monastery, the largest Tibetan Buddhist monastery in Yunnan, which is also known as Little Potala Palace, is a 10-minute drive from the hotel. Regardless of if you are a nature lover, culture buff, gourmand or adventurer, our ambassadors will lead you to unforgettable experiences in this magical place.
At the end of an enchanting day, you enjoy the breathtaking views of snow-capped mountains from your guestroom and know that Shangri-La is not a destination to arrive at, but a journey to experience.
