We are planning a trip to Shangrila in March, late March. How is the weather and temperature there? Any clothes suggestions please?

Shangrila in March is ideal for travelling. The weather is not too hot in March, but it gets hot in April. The temperature will be ok if the sun comes out, but better take some warm clothes with you.
