Day 5 - Shangrila

... the bus. This is when the Shangrila tour guide joined us to tell us more of the people here. Apparently Shangrila means "the place where the gods live". Judging by the environment I wasn't too sure what they meant by that. But I soon found out first hand that it actually means that Shangrila is located so high above sea level that it is hard for regular people to be. The oxygen level here is very low and ...

... rotation of the outer wheel equates to literally about 1 billion single wheel turns. Eager to do our good dead for the day we got a bit of a group going to move the wheel.

We're at 10,000 feet elevation here, and the cable car will take us up to about 15,000! Fingers crossed!

... utopian land called Shangri-la, supposedly tucked away in the Himalayas where people are almost immortal and live in undisturbed paradise. The government hoped this rather crass move would help boost tourism to the area... and it has. Shangri-la is considered to be a primarily Tibetan county, and with Tibet being closed to all foreigners for the whole of this month, it's about as close as we're going to get!
