Shangri-La, Yunnan, China
Songtsam Shangrilalvgu Lodge
  • You are greeted with warming tea and cookies upon arrival - a welcoming touch when it is chilly outside

  • Make sure you have enough time to do some hiking to take in the extraordinary scenery and to acquaint yourself with the fascinating local culture

  • Fabulous rooms with lots of attention to detail, with fresh fruit and tea everyday

  • Ask for a room with a view of the monastery - it is a rather lovely scene when the sun catches the gold roof

Located just outside the centre of Shangri-La with views to Songzanlin Monastery, Songtsam Lodge provides a unique and personal experience in Shangri-La.

All the rooms and suites here are decorated in the traditional Tibetan style with unique design features such as antique furniture and warm Tibetan carpets.

The intimate restaurant serves an array of Western and Tibetan dishes, all presented with charming service. Complemented by large windows you are welcomed with beautiful views over the surrounding town of Shangri-La and the rolling countryside in the distance.

After days exploring the old town of Shangri-La and dramatic landscapes beyond you are welcomed back with relaxing spa treatments and are invited to unwind in the sauna and hammam or with a cup of freshly brewed tea in the pretty garden and courtyard.
