In the year 1893, James Hilton described an eternally peaceful and quiet place among mountains in the East—— Shangri-La in one of his novels for the first time. In the novel Lost Horizon, an English diplomat Conway and his brother Gorge scattered the English citizens and helped them leave the dangerous region. On their way home, their plane was hijacked and fell down into the mountain in the region. Some lucky survivors were taken to Shangri-la where Conway found lots of fantastic things in such a state founded nearly 200 years ago, in which the local people lived up to more than one hundred years old and lived peacefully and harmoniously with the other people, animals and everything here. The place was called Shangri-La by the local folks.
Nowadays, that is not only a beautiful scenery, but also a kind of artistic conception.
