For those traveling the world in search of places that will stimulate their senses and curiosity, Songtsam Retreat at Shangri-la is bound to captivate. The beauty of Shangri-la, a traditional welcome and calm serenity await you. Songtsam Retreat at Shangri-la consists of twenty-four dry stone structures spread over twenty-one acres of hillside. Priceless Tibetan treasures greet you as you walk through the beautifully carved entrance portal, from the two ancient brass Buddhas to the intricate and exquisite prayer rugs mounted on the walls. Throughout Songtsam Retreat you can soak up the magic of Shangri-la and learn about the local culture.
The trip might have been the absolute best of our lifetime (thus far). We particularly want to commend our guide Peter in the Guilin area-he was so incredibly attentive, energetic, enthusiastic-and absolutely dedicated to ensuring that our meals were 100% vegetarian.
