Welcome to Bhutan

The Last Shangri-La

The word Shangri la became well known after the book Lost Horizon was made into a movie in 1937, after which the word became quite a catch. The movie shows a group of westerners who board a plane which is unfortunately hijacked and it crash-landed in a remote area in the Himalayan Mountains. They were miraculously saved by some of the Tibetans that resided there and taken to the middle of the mountain haven where it was a beautiful haven with sunny and temperate climate. The movie introduces this place as Shangri la where everything is perfect and exactly how a heaven is supposed to be. After this movie, the Shangri la became a word for an imaginary distant place where everything is pleasant and you can get everything you want here.
