Arro Khampa Shangri-La
Arro Khampa means “Friend, I bid you welcome” in the eastern Tibetan dialect. This warmhearted phrase pays homage to the ancient tradition of welcoming caravans and travelers along the Ancient Tea Horse Road. Shangri-La Arro Khampa Is located in the heart of the ancient city of Dokhar Dzong. This ancient city is China's largest and most complete preservation of Tibetan residential groups, built on the ancient tea horse road.
History remembers Shangrila original name as Gyalthang, because of the lush beauty green fields that cover the valley floor for much of the year. For the last thirty years, the remote region’s lush beauty and mountains were off limits to outsiders, keeping much of the area isolated from other cultures and influences. For this reason, much of the region lives and speaks differently.
Today, as the gate of mountain and trails open up again, we hope our own modern version of the ancient greeting brings back the feeling of instant welcome and warmth to all new friends and weary travelers.
