Herds graze on a pasture in Shangri-La, northwest Yunnan’s Diqing Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture on May 6.

Summer began on May 6 according to the traditional Chinese lunar calendar that divides the year into 24 solar terms.

However, vernal sceneries are seen nowadays across Shangri-La in northwest Yunnan’s Diqing Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, because of its high altitude.

The snow-capped peaks, the verdant villages, the lucid waters, the grazing herds, the azalea fields, the Dukezong old town, and the Songzanlin temple, all present a unique vernal scenery.

Strolling in Shangri-La, an Eden-like tourist destination, visitors could not tell if it is summer or spring.
