Remember the anthropomorphic red panda Master Shifu from Kung Fu Panda? In contrast with their giant black-and-white kin, red pandas are smaller in shape and more active and playful. Close contact with them during this tour.

Day 1Wolong Arrival

Lunch and dinner

You will be driven for approximately 3 hours from Chengdu to Wolong, which is a distance of 120 kilometers (75 miles).

Explore the Wild Pandas' Habitat Led by a Tibetan Guide (2½ Hours)

At about 11:30am, you will have a quick meal before meeting your guides, who are expecting you. There will be a seasoned Tibetan hiking guide as well as your English-speaking guide, just to ensure your safety in the woods and to have a better experience.

Dengsheng Gorge is located in the outer ring of the nature reserve. It is not only a haven for wild giant pandas, white-lipped deer, and red pandas but some rare birds also live there. Take the 5-kilometer (3-mile) repaired path and hike for about 3 to 5 hours while appreciating the natural beauty.

Access the Staff-Only Surveillance Center and Pay a Nighttime Visit to the Pandas (2 Hours)

Have dinner in the dining hall at Wolong Panda Center and then enter the staff-only surveillance center. Around August to September, you will have the chance to see mother pandas and their babies through the monitors. A professional panda keeper will be there for you to consult with.

Spend the night in a hostel neighboring the base. There will be no other tourists around to disturb you while you are visiting these lovely creatures. Your guide and a panda keeper will accompany you.

We took the 5 day Yi Peng Festival your in Chiang Mai, Thailand. It was an amazing experience. We had two tour guides who were absolutely phenomenal. They answered all the questions we had and were always on time. It was a truly once in a lifetime trip and I would definitely recommend using them.
