Property Description

Lao Shay Youth Hostel Shangri-la is surrounded by a boundless meadow in the Tibetan Areas merely 6kms away from the county town of Shangri-la.

For your convenience, We have shuttle service from Shangri-la airport and Shangri-la town( pick-up or send needs to pay 15 yuan per car).( shuttle service from 08:00 to 21:00, 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. View House Rules

    Shangri-La is cold this season, but there are a lot of migratory birds migrating on the grassland in front of the hostel, which surprises me!

    The hostel is located in a very beautiful grassland outside Shangri-La town. It’s highly cost performance. Now it is a beautiful season and good weather. I don't want to go anywhere in the hostel, just sitting in the yard to see the kinds of colors wildflowers, yaks and horses on the grasslands , that has enough to attract me.

    Pretty nice hostel, reasonably priced. Location is 5km out of the city which can be a problem if you're looking for a taxi into town in the evening. That said, the hostel offers its own lift service. Area is very beautiful, very nice to get out of the fake old town and into the grasslands. Good bicycles for rental

    The place itself was okay and staff was very nice for picking us up and dropping us off to bus station. However, the woman there didn't know how to cook many of the dishes and there was no one else there to help. The city with all the food is a 15-20 min bike ride away which you would have to do.
