Western Sichuan Province, Chengdu Giant Panda Breeding Base, and Contrasting Tibetan Autonomous Regions (8 days) - a Beijing Discovery Tours EXCLUSIVE Tour!  

Although this area was devastated by the tragic earthquake on May 12, 2008, it is recovering, and your tourism dollars can help! This region was especially dependent on tourism as a source of revenue, so it is important that travelers return to this area - both in terms of the money that would be spent there as well as to help in understanding the magnitude of the earthquake’s effect on the region. We are committed to providing tourism services to this region in a thoughtful and considerate manner that will help to restore the economy of this incredibly beautiful region that has been so dramatically affected by the horrific earthquake.

Giant Panda Tour Wolong Reserve Sichuan China Tibetan Temple Tour Sichuan Province China

Sichuan Province is home to around 85% of the world’s surviving wild Giant Pandas, and the pleasant city of Chengdu is home to one of the world’s most important panda reserves and research centers. It’s a great place to see many Giant Pandas in a natural setting, where you can get close enough to hand-feed them and smell their breath (that part of the panda is not quite so charming.) Western Sichuan Province is also home to many different Tibetan subcultures, and this 8-day tour will have you up close and personal with pandas and panchens alike. The tour will take you through two contrasting Tibetan cultural areas, Anduo and Jiarong, that will highlight the dramatic differences between the ancient Kangba Tibetan culture and the Jiarong Tibetan culture. The landscape varies from small hills to enormous mountains more than 16,000 feet (5000 meters) tall. You will experience the broad Chengdu Plains, the intimate Kangding villages, the towering Zhuoduo Mountain Pass, the graceful Xindu Bridge, the holiness of Tagong, the grand Yak Valley, the unique Danba Shengju and Suo Slope, and the interestingly-named Sea Snail Valley Hot Springs, plus spend one night in the fantastic Wolong Giant Panda Reserve.

Our recommended tour:

Day 1: Sightseeing in Beijing (and catch the afternoon train to Chengdu if traveling by train.)

Day 2: Morning flight to Chengdu where you will enjoy sightseeing in the pleasant capital city of Sichuan. Enjoy the nightlife and spend the night in Chengdu, where the people enjoy one of China’s most leisurely and laid-back lifestyles.

Day 3: Chengdu - Luding - Kangding (174 miles/280km trip)

Incredible scenery will you have you giving your camera a workout along this route with views of the beautiful Qiyi River and Er’lang Mountain, then travel through the 2 1/2 mile (4.1 km) long Er’lang Tunnel. The Luding Bridge is legendary for its role in the Chinese Civil War. Spend the night in the village of Kangding in the Ganzi Tibetan Autonomous Region and enjoy a tremendously relaxing visit to the hot springs.

Day 4: Kangding – Zheduo Mountain – Juli Temple – Xindu Bridge (37 miles/60km trip)

Through the Zheduo Mountain Pass,  elevation 13,839 feet (4218 meters) to the holy Zheduo Mountain, elevation 14,101 feet (4298 meters). Hiking in this area will require you to be in very good physical condition due to the altitude and rough terrain, so don’t overdo it. Traditional Tibetan housing in many different styles is scattered across the landscape, with the unique but simple white Tibetan towers a common feature. The Juli Temple is a small temple without the usual grand halls, blessed by its location next to Gongga Snow Mountain and the presence of numerous valuable cultural relics. Xindu Bridge is known as a paradise for photographers both amateur and professional. Spend the night in the charming village of Xindu.
