We have two young children and they lived the train ride. The kids also loved visiting the kindergarten. Also loved visiting the village where they got to play with the children. All in all a very good day.

We had a great half-day tour on a rainy morning. It was school holidays so we had lots of children running along the train asking for lollies (ration your supplies as you will go through 4 or 5 villages). Our guide, Nuky, was fantastic!

Hi, we stayed at the Shangri-la and did this trip. We were picked up by a mini-van that took us to the station which is right on the main road at the entrance to the Shangri-La.
