Summary
James Hilton popularized the tale of the magical hidden valley of Shangri-La in the 1930s in his novel, Lost Horizon. However, the story of a lost kingdom high in the Himalayas - a paradise free from war and suffering - is descended from a much older Indian myth. In this program, Michael Wood takes a thrilling trek through India, Nepal, and to Tibet's Mount Kailash, the sacred center of the world for all Hindus and Buddhists. After hundreds of miles on dirt roads, he reaches the fantastic ruins of the lost city of Tsaparang, which he suggests is the real inspiration behind the Shangri-La myth
