The background sky includes bright star Sirius on the left, prominent constellation Orion in the middle and Aldebaran on the top right of the image. The pyramid-looking Mount Jampayang with an elevation 5958m is located in Yading national nature reserve, Sichuan province of China. The name Jampayang means “the avatar of Manjusri”, the Bodhisattva of wisdom. Many Chinese regard Yading as Shangri-La, a fictional place described in the 1933 novel Lost Horizon by British author James Hilton.
