Trivia Question: Lost Horizon by James Hilton introduced many westerners to what mythological Asian paradise?
Shangri-La’s existence is alluded to by some Buddhist religious texts. They describe the land as a haven for their people to escape to in times of great turmoil. Hilton described the place as an earthly paradise in his novel and brought the name Shangri-La into the western lexicon.
Founder of IHP, husband to a great wife (my best friend), and dad to 5 wonderful kids. Big fan of history, quizzes, and just about anything trivia related. I also enjoy reading biographies, non-fiction, and fiction (fantasy novels). My other hobby is board games and in my opinion there is nothing better than a family board game night!
