Where is Shangri-La?

Two explorers set off to southwest China in search of the elusive Shangri-La.

Taking a cue from links between the book Lost Horizon, and Joseph Rock’s travel stories published in National Geographic, we embark on an arduous quest.

Could the mythical place be based on Muli in Sichuan?

From the Other Side

We cross Victoria Harbour into Kowloon to look back over the city from the other side in the second in the series of Hong Kong Short Walks. First we climb Lion Rock the hard way, straight up from Wong Tai Sin. For the second walk we take the gentle 2 km Kap Lung ancient trail through the Forest in the west of the New Territories.
