Our hike to the Yakfields around Shangri-La and our Tibetan Homestay we arranged with: Khampa Caravan.
Loved it! The hike is definitely lonely and unique, though the village was not as spectaculair as we'd hoped.
And for those who wonder: Till early 2000's this town was called Zongdian, but the government thought it would attrack more tourists if they would rename the place Shangri-La. After the novel of James Hilton. Where Shangri-La is described as a mystical paradise on earth....
In 2014 the old city got fire and hundreds of houses were destroyed. Though rebuilding goes fast!
CAMERA equipment I use
**Canon Powershot N100 – http://amzn.to/2aEbDZS (affiliate)
A budget option I loved very much for my first year of travel vlogging.
** Sony RX100 mk4 – http://amzn.to/2awvMyn (affiliate)
Oh my, how I love this new camera! Use this one from the Batanes series (Philippines II) onwards.
** GoPro HERO4 Silver – http://amzn.to/2aEpnqy (affiliate)
I mainly use this camera for under water shots. Love the little screen at the back so your shots will not be a surprise till you're at your computer
** Joby Gorilla Pod – http://amzn.to/2aIFsJd (affiliate)
Small and compact, will stable shots. Love this mini tripod. Especially when traveling alone it's a great help.
