I found this visit very interesting and informative. I have always been fascinated by pandas and the Chinese are doing a great job to preserve them from extinction. It is good to know that it is extremely humid in this area.

No matter how old you are, you'll be delighted and amused by these gentle and solitary animals. Get there early in the day when they get fed. They are more active. Otherwise, you'll just see them sleeping.

We enjoyed the Panda valley experience. While some of the pandas had to be seen behind glass, others could be seen directly.

It mistakenly combines the "Dujiangyan Panda Base and Center for Disease Control" facility in Dujiangyan (operated by Wolong) with the entirely separate "Panda Valley" research facility operated by the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding. These two...More

There aren't a lot of pandas in this center (less than 30), and there weren't any panda cubs either, but there were few people which allowed us to enjoy watching the pandas uninterrupted. You don't have to squeeze in any crowds to get a good...More

Who doesn't love Pandas? They are so cute and so much fun to watch. On the down side, this facility has only 4 enclosures, but it is in a beautiful area and the pandas were pretty active the morning we went. The best time to...More

If you are in Sichuan do not miss this. It is something you cannot do anywhere else. Be prepared for labour intensive work so if you have back, knee or joint problems this would not be the tour for you. The day starts at 8am...More
