Lots of people say they’ve been to Shangri-La.

But let’s be honest.

Most of them are talking about their own personal Shangri-La, like a secluded vacation home. Or a houseboat with a really clichéd name. Or whatever.

Good thing you’ve never been lots of people.

Presenting In Search of Shangri-La: Trekking & Pandas, an 11-day trip that entails exploring largely unexplored areas in China (including a place so glorious, it’s named after a fictional utopia...), booking now.

Basically, you’re trying to fit as much China into 11 days as humanly possible. For instance, it starts with spending a few days feasting on spicy hot pots, feeding pandas in a primordial forest and seeing a 233-foot stone Buddha. And as this slideshow demonstrates, it only gets better from there.

Because then you fly to the town of Shangri-La. You’ll leisurely take a boat out on a lake. Go horseback riding on grasslands if you desire. Dance around fires. Hang with the local Zang people. You know, normal Shangri-La stuff.

And then you’ll wrap things up at the beautiful Lugu Lake, near where the local Mosuo tribe lives.

The Mosuo always did have good taste in lakes.
