Muli monastery (Muli Da Si), 1994.

This is the beautiful monastery at Muli. It is where Joseph Rock stayed on many occasions and sought the help of the local ruler, a lama-king called Chote Chaba.

With its isolated situation and beautiful setting, I often think that Muli was the real inspiration for Shangri-La.
