Dujiangyan Panda Base Tours and Activities

star-5
71 reviews
Dujiangyan Panda Base
China’s Dujiangyan Panda Base focuses on rehabilitation, disease prevention, and public education for the conservation of the endangered giant panda, one of the rarest species in the world. Tour the panda hospital, enclosures, and educational center for the opportunity to spot dozens of pandas munching on bamboo and playing.

The Basics

The sprawling 126-acre site is divided into six separate zones dedicated to various areas of research and care. Choose from among a range of experiences at the Dujiangyan Panda Base, which spans 40 sets of enclosures, a panda hospital, a medical lab, and an educational center with a small auditorium and interactive displays covering the center’s rescue and rehabilitation efforts.

The most popular tour option is to volunteer for a day. After a physical exam to ensure you’re safe to work with the fragile bears, you’ll be outfitted in work garments and work alongside dedicated panda experts to observe and record animal behavior, clean enclosures, prepare food for the pandas, and simply explore the base.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The panda base is a must-visit for animal lovers and families with kids.
  • Book tours and activities in advance of arriving; the base allows a daily limit of 30 volunteers.
  • Volunteer experiences at the panda base generally last between 6 and 9 hours.

How to Get There
The Dujiangyan Panda Base is located about 34 miles (55 km) from Chengdu city center. The best way to get there is to join a guided tour from Chengdu with included round-trip transportation.

When to Get There
The panda base is open daily from 8:30am to 5pm. Arrive early and book any special experiences in advance to avoid disappointment on the day. If possible avoid visiting on weekends and Chinese national holidays when the base can get particularly busy with domestic tourists.

The Pandas of Dujiangyan
The animals who live at the Dujiangyan Panda Base are there for a variety of reasons. Most are being cared for as elderly, disabled, sick, injured, or vulnerable wild pandas on the road to recovery, but some may be healthy pandas being held in quarantine before or after they leave the country.
