The bus ride up the mountain allows us to enjoy breathtaking scenery of the national park. The winding road leaves behind fascinating view when you look back. The views of mountains with sea of clouds, canyon and deep gorges are stunning.

Located in the center of the Three parallel Rivers Nature reserve, this park offers stunning views of the river, steep mountains and deep gorges. Nice for a visit. Tickets for the bus ride is expensive and can be touristy.

The landscape is so unreal. You begin to see the river, calm, peaceful and reasonably wide when approaching the canyon. Once you make a turn, you will see the landscape changes within a few hundred meters. A drop of several hundred meters on your right hand side where the river starts to roar. The fiord on both sides of the... More

Please note: This location is also known as Shangri-La Grand Canyon National Park (香格里拉大峡谷国家公园) and Balagezong (巴拉格宗). Neither our hotel or the several taxi drivers we asked were able to identify "Shangri-La Canyon" (or its direct translation in Chinese) on its own. As for the location itself - both the park (and the drive to it from Shangri-La) presented absolutely... More

Maybe it was the rain, maybe the cold. But not worth the drive out there.

When we heard rave reviews about the shangri la canyon,we thought it was a must to see the place,but when we reached there, we were very disappointed. There was nothing much to see there and the trekking wasn't challanging at all. I heard they were still renovating the area so i guess i came on the wrong time but i... More
