Some say that Shangri-La can be found in sacred Tibet, or maybe in wild Qinghai. They are others who say it can be found in artistic Yunnan. Author Laurence J Brahm hitchhikes off the beaten track through western China, meeting monks, nomads, artists, rock and pop musicians, dancers, composers, environmentalists and living Buddhas, each searching for their own version of Shangri-La. Shangri-La can be found in a cup of café latte or yak butter tea if you search carefully enough... Searching for Shangri-La... Can you find it? Maybe you are not searching carefully enough……

Laurence J. Brahm travels through the western region of China in search of Shangri-La – only to find that it is not a place, but a state of mind. Shangri-La has now become a source of creative inspiration, drawing China’s leading figures in pop culture and art circles to western China, all in search of Shangri-La. China’s leading cultural figures such as composer San Bao, dancer Yang Liping and pop singer Dadawa appear in the book, together with artists, lamas, and living Buddhas Searching for Shangri-La is an alternative philosophy travelogue.
