Shangri-La Farm was inspired by the legendary fictional place of Shangri-La described in the 1933 novel Lost Horizon by British author James Hilton. Hilton describes Shangri-La as a mystical, harmonious valley, gently guided from a lamasery, enclosed in the western end of the Kunlun Mountains.
Shangri-La has become synonymous with any earthly paradise, and particularly a mythical Himalayan utopia–a permanently happy land, isolated from the outside world. In the novel Lost Horizon, the people who live at Shangri-La are almost immortal, living years beyond the normal lifespan and only very slowly aging in appearance.
The scenery of Shangri-La is most magical and truly breathtaking—fields of wildflowers and wild grasses are shaped by lazy, meandering paths that lead the eye to the soft curves of the Green Mountains. The Waterfalls and the river that border the property create a peaceful white noise to complete the idyllic setting for a wedding or any special event.
