Shangri-La: An imaginary paradise on earth; utopia. Likened to the biblical Garden of Eden, an earthly paradise where nature’s bounty reigns supreme. A fictional place from the mind of author James Hilton, yet Shangri-La may have at one time truly existed. For a short period in our planet’s existence, mankind lived in harmony with nature.
