Known as Zhongdian County, Shangri-La is the capital of Diqing Autonomous Prefecture. Shangri-La is 315 kilometers north of Dali and 659 kilometers away from Kunming. Shangri-la is a Tibetan word meaning land of sacredness and peace.

Many snow-capped mountains surround Shangri-la. The three well known ones are Meili, Balang, and Haba mountains. The Tibetans consider these mountains sacred. Meili Snow Mountain is one of the eight sacred mountains the Tibetans worship. Beneath Kang Karpo, the Mingyong and Sinong glaciers stretch down to a level of 2700 meters. Because of its changeable climate, Meili Mountain is fraught with danger and remains unconquered until today.
