Overview

Combine visits to the Leshan Grand Buddha and the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding during this private day-long trip from Chengdu. See the impressive 230-foot (70-meter) Grand Buddha and its surrounding temples. Learn about panda conservation and care during a visit to the research center. Round-trip hotel transportation and lunch are included.
  • 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.
Itinerary
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.
Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes
Admission Ticket Included
Stop At:  
Leshan Giant Buddha (Da Fo)
After this visit, you will drive to Leshan, where upon arrival you will have a traditional Chinese cuisine lunch. Then, you will visit the Leshan Giant Buddha by walking. The Grand Buddha is a 71 meter (230 feet) high sculpture carved into one of the large cliffs by the river. In addition to the Grand Buddha, there are also numerous smaller carvings of various Buddhas on the Grand Buddha Cliff Road. Other than carvings, there are also various temples and shrines scattered about, the beautiful Haoshang bridge, and some wonderful small waterfalls. Then transfer back to your hotel with the rest of the day on your own arrangement

Tour is Very Good but Viator’s Price is NOT

star-3rogermerel
Mutianyu Great Wall and Changling Ming Tomb Bus Tour from Beijing | Nov 2019
The actual company behind the same exact tour is offered on multiple online sites for $28-$34, but was $50 on Viator. So don't be like me who booked through Viator and paid too much. The tour itself was very good. Our tour guides name was White and he spoke English with clear pronunciation. Know that there is an extra (required) 120 RMB cost ($17) charge for the cable car, which is sometime included by other companies booking the same tour. The shopping stops (Jade and Tea tasting) are actually interesting, and are not high-pressure, but help subsidize the cost of the trip. The lunch was plentiful and decent, although little meat (was the quality to be expect for mass delivered tour lunch). The Ming Changling Tomb is only so-so but you actually go into the building that you can not go in at the Forbidden city, but not sure is really worth the extra time.

Mutianyu Great Wall and Changling Ming Tomb Bus Tour from Beijing | Sep 2019
The guide spoke almost no English. A lot of bla bla about the shopping spots and next to zero explanation for the Great Wall. The guide didn't care for his group, almost lost sbd. We spent more time on the road driving to distant shopping outlets that on historic locations, This tour just steels your time and money.

Beijing Private Tour: Shaolin Kung Fu Show and Peking Roasted Duck Dinner | Sep 2019
This trip was made perfect in every way by our guide. Unfortunately we didn’t ask her name! She collected us promptly in a very clean car and took us to a traditional Peking Duck restaurant. This was very popular with locals which was encouraging. She spoke good English and used Google translate to help even more. She ensured we understood about the duck and all the other gorgeous food we were presented with. Even showing my husband how to use chopsticks! She had even been so kind as to bring fresh peaches for our dessert as they were in season. A quick ride across town to the Red Theatre. Our guide positioned us perfectly for a photo outside before she collected our tickets and personally showed us to our seats. She took the time to ensure we understood about the show we were to see. The show was superb! The seats excellent and we took many photos to remind us of the great evening. Our guide was waiting for us to return us to the hotel. All in all, this was excellent in every way possible. Thank you!

Mutianyu Great Wall Private Tour with Picnic and Wine | Jun 2019
This was an amazing day and unforgettable experience. James, my guide, is very kind and helpful, gave me a lot of precious info and history and was always ready to meet my needs and fulfil my requests. He even offered to help me organize my evening plan, after the tour, which was not part of what he was supposed to do. I took the stairs to go to the Great Wall, a good exercise. James met me in one of the watching towers and introduced me to this unbelievable construction and its history. We paused for wine and the lunch, then I stayed an additional hour to take some extra photos. James has suggested and taken some fantastic photos of me that my friends have enjoyed. I can only say: DO IT!
