Description

Get up-close looks at bamboo-crunching pandas and crane your neck to take in views of the world's tallest Buddha statue on this private excursion. Visit the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding to learn about panda conservation and admire centuries-old stonework at the Leshan Giant Buddha.

After getting picked up at your Chengdu hotel in a private vehicle, make your way out of town to the Chengdu Panda Base, where scientists are hard at work developing new programs to aid in giant panda rehabilitation. Scope out exhibits where adolescent pandas are busy wrestling in grassy fields, examine displays that offer intriguing info about panda ecology, and then hop back in your ride for the trip to the Mount Emei Scenic Area, home to the Leshan Giant Buddha.

When you arrive, carefully head down a cliff-side staircase that leads to the base of the 233-foot (71-m) statue. Find out how this UNESCO-listed sculpture was carved in the 8th and 9th century as an effort to calm the area's raging rivers, snap some photos of its serene expression, and head back to Chengdu to get dropped off at your hotel, or at the airport.

I can't say enough nice things about this tour agency! Summer, my guide, was extremely accommodating: picking me up early to see the pandas and dropping me off at the airport! She even called the airline to confirm my flight and found that my flight time had changed. She moved quickly to secure a seat on a later flight. I can't recommend this tour and their kind guides enough! THANK YOU, SUMMER!!!
