Traveling , after Lijiang to the City of Shangrila, as the ancient story goes, and the myths describe, a small city that in the heart of it all. This ancient city was fabled to house the fountain of youth, as some ledgends go. Todays modern city, if you can call it modrn by todays standards, has a lot of old mixed in. The temples and mountains poised up top with gold agorned accents , are a reminder of what was one the focal point, of the ancient and is not a tourist attraction for the modern. The way up to the mountain, it is said that one must turn all golden objects, then one will be granted luck, well who am I to argue with the ancients, I could use a little luck…so turn away.
