Lao Shay Youth Hostel
Lao Shay Youth Hostel Shangri-la, newly opened in January 2009, is surrounded by a boundless meadow in the Tibetan Areas merely 6kms away from the county of Shangri-la.
For your convenience, we offer free arrival pick-up service from Shangri-la Airport, long-distance bus terminal as well as other in-town areas. (Free arrival pick-up service from 07:00 - 23:00, otherwise there will be a charge the same as taxi charges)
We provide simple but quality service while you breathe in the stunning views and enjoy the Tibetan settlements in our neighborhood without the disturbance from restaurants, bars or shops in close proximity.
All year long, the meadow in front of the hostel is scattered with flocks of yak, pigs and sheep. Flowers are in their full blossoms in the summer, while blushing chamaejasme discloses its fiery nature in fall. In the winter, the same piece of meadow covers itself with a silvery white blanket and even houses will find themselves having a newly-formed layer of icing. This is the perfect land for photographers and those who appreciate the beauty of nature.
Most are attracted to Shangri-la by the 'Lost Horizon' of James Hilton and wonder where they should go in this piece of heavenly land. Many left in great disappointment after touring a few tourist attractions and spending a couple of nights in town, feeling they have not seen the sacred heaven they have been dreaming for.
We suggest you to slow down your pace, let the tranquil aura of Shangri-la embrace you and bring you to the world you have never dreamed of: open your eyes to see the vast meadow, the nameless pastures where no buses or guides will lead you to; look at the lights reflected on the curves of the mountains at dawn and dusk; experience the local Tibetan lives and have a laugh with the friendly Tibetans.
For sure you will bring home more than what you expected.
The newly renovated hostel is built in Tibetan style, the extravagant wooden carvings and colorful paints exhibit the craftsmanship of Tibetans to its full. The cozy cafe/dinning area on the ground floor welcome you to read, relax, dine and have a chat with your new friends.
All rooms have either a grassland or snow mountain view, offering you the choices to wake up to different beauties of nature. Other than dormitories, all rooms are carpeted and decorated in natural colors, helping you to relax in this tranquil environment.
