The Long Journey Backpackers' Lodge

Photos Facilities Map Streetview Reviews

Opened in June 2012, The Long Journey Backpackers' Lodge is set to become the most happening place to stay in Shangri-la. It is run by an avid backpacker for backpackers from all over the world.

It features a tastefully decorated dormitory and 2 luxurious suites complete with sun roof, bath-tub and PC. Located just outside Shangri-la's old town, it is the ideal place for a good night's sleep. There is a nice veranda which offers panoramic views of the world's largest golden prayer wheel and the surrounding mountainscape.

The cafe serves a wide range of delighting Chinese and Western food at very reasonable prices. The bar on the ground floor has a nice fireplace and features good music, movie-screening and a wide range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. The Long Journey Backpackers' Lodge offers 24h hot water, fiber-optic WiFi, free use of computers and is the only place in Shangri-la where international calls to landlines and mobiles via Skype is possible.
