Lijiang–Shangri-La railway

The Lijiang–Shangri-La railway or Lixiang railway (simplified Chinese: 丽香铁路; traditional Chinese: 麗香鐵路; pinyin: lìxiāng tiělù), is a railroad under construction in Yunnan Province of Southwest China, due to be completed in 2020. The shorthand name of the line is named after its two proposed terminal cities, Lijiang and Shangri-La.

The line is slated to run 139 km (86 mi) from Lijiang, the rail head of the Dali–Lijiang railway, north to Shangri-La in northwestern Yunnan. Despite approval of the project’s feasibility plans by the National Development and Reform Commission in May 2009, construction did not begin until July 22 2014. Construction is expected to require six years.

Next year, (2020) when the Li Xiang railway put into operation, it will takes only about 1 hours to go from Lijiang to Shangri-La by the high speed train. It will takes only 4 hours to complete the journey from Kunming to Shangri-La.
