We stayed in all 5 Songtsam lodges in Shangri La area in this trip. Songtsam Tacheng is the first stop, of which we fell in love immediately. Site of each lodge is chosen carefully in the midst of a small village. Rooms are tastefully designed with Tibetan touch, not fancy, feel like you are visiting home of a good friend... More

The hotel is situated in a beautiful rural area of China with serene views, comfortable beds, and clean and well-appointed bathrooms. The food is very good. The overall feeling is very relaxed which makes for a very relaxing and enjoyable stay. But what made this hotel excellent was the staff, especially Nu Nu, who took us to the local monastery...

Another great experience in my collection staying in the various Songtsam Lodges. As in the previous Songtsam Lodges we received a very warm and personal welcome. Although arriving at 2:30pm we were offered a late lunch which was excellent, prepared fresh from ingredients all harvested from the adjoining village. The room was clean, lot of space and we had a... More

Beautiful lodge in countryside of Tacheng. Rooms are large, comfortable and well-equipped, all with terraces overlooking terraced fields. Loved being in the middle of nowhere for a few days and visiting local minority villages, seeing rare golden snub-nosed monkeys and walking around a mountainside Tibetan Buddhist monastery. Especially nice to be there during Chinese New Year - with locals dressed... More

This small hotel is located in the middle of fields and near a small village and not much. The views from everywhere were beautiful and the view from the dining room was framed by a pine tree looking exactly like a Chinese painting. We had a room with a downstairs sitting area, bathroom and balcony. Thr sleeping area was in... More

Our tour of the Yunnan Province began at Songtsam Tacheng hotel. As other reviewers have shared you are greeted by several smiling staff members who whisk your luggage away to your room. We were offered honey and lemon water and exchanged our shoes for cloth slippers in order to "make us feel at home". Rooms are spacious with king size... More

We arrived at this picturesque Songstam lodge on a rainy summer afternoon. At dinner, we were treated to a double rainbow and then what can only be described as a rainbow "bolt" that looked like it had been photo-shopped or animated it was so vibrant. This is a magical place with electric blue skies, and lush surroundings embraced by Yunnan's... More

Songtsam Tacheng was the third stop in our 7-day circuit with Songtsam Lodges across northwestern Yunnan. Situated on a mountainside at the fringes of a lovely village called Qibie, the lodge has a distinct architecture. Its design is inspired by the local mix of Tibetan and Lisu cultures (the Lisu are another ethnic minority in this part of Yunnan). The... More

We stayed here on a tour with Elder Treks on a tour through Yunnan. This hotel was a highlight of the visit. Fully equipped, staff speaks some English, relaxing lobby, good food and very large comfortable rooms. In a remote area overlooking tiered farmland and a short walk to a quant village. We wanted to stay longer.
