A mystery and a dream, a wonderland hidden in a remote place, a paradise sought for ages; this is Shangri-la as first depicted in James Hilton's novel Lost Horizons. It Describes the adventures of Hugh Conway and his three Western traveling companions who, whilst traveling from South Asian Baskul (a name invented by the author) to Peshawar, were taken by a mysterious oriental skyjacker to the hidden Valley of the Blue Moon and the city of Shangri-La. On Sept 14, 1997 Yunnan provincial government proclaimed publicly to the whole world that Shangri-la was a city in Diqing county, Yunnan.
