  1. National Geographic always coming up with this Shangri La myth. There was never a Shangri La nor will there ever be one. It´s just an old dream.
    Wake up!

  2. Shangri La exists within.

    Buddhist art and imagery is reflexion of this.

  3. Great post. I was checking constantly this blog and I am impressed!

    Very helpful information particularly the last part :) I care for such info much. I was looking for this certain information for a very long time.
    Thank you and good luck.

  4. And of course the climbing and fear of heights narrative is a metaphor for Buddhist practice and the importance of sangha. ;-)
