In Shangri-La, where mountain peaks touch the clouds and there are endless valleys to explore, this is a true trekking paradise. Banyan Tree Ringha offers 4-wheel drive tours to remote lakes and villages, as well as relaxed nature walks, pony treks and serious trekking.
Officially part of Greater Tibet, Shangri-La has strong Tibetan influences and this is reflected in the beautiful lodges and suites at Banyan Tree Ringha, which are constructed from authentic Tibetan farmhouses. Each suite or lodge has an open fireplace and intricately carved wooden balcony offering breathtaking views across the river and valley.
Learn about the hundreds of types of tea grown in the provinces at the Jakhang Teahouse, sample the culinary delights of Yunnan province at Chang Sa, ride out for a romantic al fresco meal or even have a Tibetan wedding dinner - every experience at the Banyan Tree Ringha is in some way unique.
When not out exploring the extraordinary surrounds of the hotel, enjoy the fabulous world renowned Banyan Tree Spa experience surrounded by intricate carvings and Tibetan artefacts. Indulgent treatments are inspired by Himalayan practices and the ancient Chinese Five Elements philosophy and although they incorporate many western techniques, are exotic and unlike anything you will have experienced before.
