Your Shangri-La Story
Boarding the roof of the world
to visit the plateau of snow
Lhasa is an old city with a storied history, but also a blend of modernity and tradition. Let the beauty of this city spread all over the world.
Shangri-La Lhasa is located at 19 Norbulingka Road, an excellent location. Just 2 kilometres to the east is the Historic Ensemble of the Tibet-Potala Palace (winter residence of the Dalia Lama) and 1.5 kilometres to the west is the Tibetan garden, Norbulingka (also known as the summer residence), located exactly in the centre of the city, giving you great convenience. On the hotel’s fifth floor is an overlooking spot where you can enjoy a 200-degree of Lhasa City, the undulating mountain range and the holy blue sky without hindrance – the view is truly amazing. The rising and setting of the sun will give you a pleasant surprise. As on the high plateau, you can visit the hotel’s oxygen lounge for 24 hours to restore your physical strength. You can also take a nap at Altitude dining cafe and in the small courtyard outside. Sip on delicious coffee with desserts and let the warm sunshine of the Sun City bathe your whole body as you enjoy the cool breeze of the snow mountain and the colourful flags dancing on the roof of each house. From Lhasa, you can drive to Tibet’s most scenic holy lake – the hotel concierge will arrange everything for you with pleasure. When you return to the hotel, it will be dinner time. You can meet your friends at Shu Garden Chinese restaurant and enjoy sweet highland barley wine and other Tibetan food. Alternatively, you can enjoy a seafood feast or an international cuisine at Altitude. In the evening, let your body get relax with flow of nature on the fifth-floor view deck of the hotel and enjoy the grandeur of the Potala Palace and the sunset glow. Of course, it’s a place to take pictures of you and the beautiful twilight for your wallpaper with just a few clicks. When night falls, the cool breeze gently caresses. You can return to the comfortable guestroom and fall in the bed of hidden rhyme. Gently, slowly and softly, you will fall asleep. This Shangri-La property in the clouds can help you reach the Shangri-La of your dreams.
