Shangrila was established in 1983 with the opening of the first Resort Hotel in Skardu, Baltistan.It was named"HEAVEN ON EARTH" because of its spectacular beauty,and breathtaking view and peaceful atmosphere. Shangrila Resort Hotel was founded by the late Brig.(Retd) Muhammad Aslam Khan, the first commander of the Northern Scouts who liberated the Northern areas in 1948.
Shangrila was named after a book titled "LOST HORIZON" by James Hilton. In the book, the author narrates a fictious tale in which an aeroplane crash landed near a riverbed, in the early 1920's. The surviving passengers came across some Buddhist monks from a nearby temple and sought their help. They were taken to a beautiful lamasery filled with a variety of fruits and flowers. The monks looked quite young, although they claimed to be hundreds of years old. The idyllic place was called Shangrila,a Chinese word meaning
" HEAVEN ON EARTH".

We would like to introduce Shangrila Heaven on Earth, which is situated in the Northern Areas of Pakistan. This region has some of the finest Tourism attractions in the world, such as K-2( 8611.M ) 2nd highest peak on earth. Deosai Plains the longest, widest and highest plateau in the world, the fast flowing River Indus which starts from Ladakh and snakes its way through the Karakoram and Himalayan ranges, along picturesque valleys, glaciers, natural wild life, forests and historical monuments ,dating back thousands of years and across the country into the Arabian sea
From Islamabad there is a daily Air Bus A-320 flight and ATR, which takes 45 minutes, flying over the most spectacular Himalayan, Karakoram and Hindu kush ranges from where you can see the tallest peaks in the world, flying over the Kaghan valley, Chilas and then following the mighty Indus river, skimming past Nanga Parbat the 9th Highest peak in the world, which is called the killer mountain at a height of 26,660 feet, flying north and entering the valley of Skardu which is the capital of Baltistan.
