Drive from Songtsam Meili to Songtsam Benzilan takes about two & a half hours. We drove through Baimang Snow Mountain & were admiring the scenery when it started snowing again & the sky was gloomy. One car in front of us stalled & could not move despite several pushing it. We waited about 1 hour before we could continue our... More

We stayed at Benzilan lodge on our way back to Shangrila, having spent the 2 previous nights at the fantastic Meili lodge (see separate review). To be fair, Meili lodge was SO outstanding that it's hard to rate objectively Benzilan after that, but let's try. First: Benzilan is a great stop for transit between the 2 lodges, Meili and Shangrila.... More

we did the songtsam circuit back in apr2013: shangrila - benzilan - meili - shangrila this lodge shares most of the same characteristic as other songtsam lodges.. the only reason why this got a 4-star and not a full one is because it is just marginally below the other 2 lodges which have spectacular feel. refer to the other 2...

To those of you have spent time in any of the Mediterranean countries, you will feel at home in the small valley with a balmy climate where Songtsam Benzilan is located. The lodge sits on a terrace in front of its own vegetable patch, backed by wheat fields, and decorated by fruit trees, particularly pomegranates and cherries. Around the lodge... More

We spent an overnight at the Songtsam Lodge in a small village outside of Benzilan (which is not very big to begin with), high above the Yangtse as it flows out of Tibet. Getting there was half the fun. It involved a three-hour drive north from Shangri-La along a spectacular, switch-backing highway high above the river, passing through small villages... More

We stayed in Songtsam Benzilan lodge one night, as part of our 7-day 'Summer Family Package', booked directly through Songtsam website. Just like Tacheng, Benzilan was impressive for its delicious, healthy food; wonderful accommodation and friendly staff. There were plenty of activities: a walk in the mountains, visiting local Tibetan villages, Buddhist monasteries, hanging prayer flags, hunting for mushrooms, a... More

This was a return visit to this hotel and this like all of the Songtsam Hotels in the chain is a wonderful magical place. It is set in a village and from your window can see how village life goes on. The staff are genuinely warm and welcoming and go out of their way to make you feel part of... More

On our third leg we stayed at the Songtsam in Benzilan and yet again we were positivly surprised even at our arrival the road to Hotel temporarily was taken away by an excavator. The location is beautiful and quiet and we enjoyed the signing and dancing in the evening around the campfire.
