This hostel is located at the foot of Shika Snow mountain, a place very far from the downtown,there are no restaurants or shops around it, and you need to pay them if you ask them to bring you to downtown aera,so i think,this is not a good choice for visitors without a car.

We arrived at Shangri-la bus station at 9 a.m. and called them. They immediately sent a minivan over ( ¥3) to pick us up.

The most beautiful location you can think of. Right in the middle of a meadow. Wild horses and yaks all around. 5 min. by car outside Shangri-La. But the hostel provides a 3 yuan taxidrive in and out the city. Also they rent good bicycles. Take the little bit more expensive mountainbikes (you need the gears) The room was very... More
