For guests travelling to Shangri-La, we have an exciting new program designed to reveal the true beauty of this staggeringly diverse and well documented region. We start the morning with a drive to Nixi village, famous for producing Shangri-La pottery. About seventy out of the one hundred families are engaged in the traditional art of pottery making, all of which is handmade, unique and precious. The raw material, clay, comes from a mountain roughly three kilometers from the village.
Following lunch at a local restaurant we then take a cable car up to the summit of Shika Snow Mountain which towers 4449 meters above the city of Shangri-La. The views are magnificent, reaching as far as Gyalthang and the Napa grasslands, creating a momentous occasion that will always be fondly remembered.
