“An Alternate To Napa Lake”

Napa Lake Grasslands
Reviewed 19 June 2013

My Hubby and I intend to visit Napa Lake but end up we travel a stone throw away to Shi Ka Snow Mountain. At Napa Lake nothing to see just grassland and paid to ride horse. We make the right decision to go to Shi Ka Snow Mountain. The cable car got 2 stop. You have the option to take cable car to station 1 or both.The 1st station RMB100 took us to a beautiful grassland with flower and a tourist shop which sell local herbs and eco car RMB90 to a lake.
The 2nd station RMB120 took us to the top where we can view whole town of Shangrila and all around us Snow Mountains. The view was spectacular and worth the trip here. There were rental of jacket and oxygen. Be prepare because it can be cold here because it's 4500M.
There's not many tourist except their local people. I wonder why there's not much info about this place. This place was so much better than Napa Lake as its too commercial.

Went out with two guides - Jing and A Xue - both lovely girls, who took us to a Tibetan family in a village in Napa lake grasslands.
Visiting the house was wonderful, and we sat with the family and tried some Tibetan snacks, and also admired the fine woodwork of the building. The light around the grasslands is perfect for photos, and we enjoyed looking out to the mountains.
Try the yak butter tea, not as bad as people make it out to be.
We found a flier in our guesthouse and contacted the girls - they met us one night and next day took us out there.

Thank David D
