On the Road to Shangri La


With Mike Turek, Historian

As a student of Tibetan history, the instructor began looking for Shangri La, a mystical valley in China, in 1983. Returning there in 2011 and 2013, he arrived at what is now known as Shangri La, or Xianggelila, Yunnan. He will share these adventures through discussion and slides.
