  • Combined trip to Chengdu Giant Panda Bear Research Center and Leshan Grand Buddha
  • Combine two Chengdu attractions in one private full-day trip
  • Learn about panda conservation from the center's staff
  • Visit the enormous Buddha, carved into a rock face, and the surrounding shrines
  • Lunch included
  • Pickup and drop-off in Chengdu
Your private guide will arrive at your downtown Chengdu hotel to pick you up early for your full-day tour. In a comfortable tour vehicle, head for the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding.

Once there, learn about the different types of housing for pandas in different stages of rehabilitation. Each enclosure has an indoor room and outdoor courtyard to ensure the pandas have plenty of space. Pandas closer to being released back to the wild are kept only outdoors so they can adapt back to living outside full time and recover their natural survival skills. 

Departing the panda base, stop for lunch at a local restaurant before continuing your tour at the Grand Buddha. Carved into a large riverside cliff, the statue stands 230 feet (70 meters) tall. Walk around the area to see the other shrines, temples, carvings, some waterfalls, and the Haoshang Bridge. 

After your day of exploration, return to your original departure point or drop-off.
Stop At:  
Giant Panda Breeding Research Base (Xiongmao Jidi)
Meet your guide at the lobby of your hotel in Chengdu city centre and transfer to visit the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding. The center has two types of 'accommodations' for giant pandas - the Captive Cages and the Semi-Natural Enclosures. Most of the giant pandas in the center stay individually in the captive cages, which are in fact large enclosures, each consisting of an indoor room and an outdoor courtyard. The semi-nature enclosures are very large wild areas but protected by border fences. Pandas in these areas will soon be released back into the wild, and these enclosures help them adapt to this natural environment.
