Arrival in Chengdu, capital of mountainous and spicy Sichuan province and the place to come and see Giant Pandas.

♨ Meals included: None today.

chengdu buddha zen hotel  

OVERNIGHT BUDDHAZEN HOTEL  ✭ ✭ ✭
A favourite of ours and a top mid-range option with the advantage of being designed in the Chinese traditional style - a rare option in China.

 
  ► DAY 2 - CHENGDU
 
THE WORLD FAMOUS RESEARCH BASE FOR GIANT PANDA BREEDING & SICHUAN OPERA

Today we visit Chengdu’s famous Research Base for Giant Panda Breeding which has over 60 pandas and is considered the best place in the world to see these endangered icons of China. In addition to the many pandas you can see here (including Red Pandas) there is an opportunity to hold a panda cub although note that this is not guaranteed and requires a local payment direct to the the Research base of RMB 2,000 per person in the photo (not per photo) and must be booked in advance which we can do for you.

WE SUGGEST - note NOT included in this trip yet!
We can also arrange a full day volunteering at the Panda Centre. This involves helping with the daily duties from preparing the pandas food and cleaning out their quarters! Full clothing is provided as well as a certificate on completion for the day. Available Monday to Friday only - ask us for more details.

Return to your hotel with the rest of the day free. Evening trip to the colourful, loud and exciting Sichuan Opera. Not sure if opera is for you? Well this opera is like no other including it’s cousin - Peking opera. In spicy Sichuan the show combines stunts such as face-changing, sword play and fire spitting with the plot. The tickets include transfers from and back to your hotel.

♨ Meals included: Hotel Breakfast & Restaurant Lunch.

  ► DAY 3 - CHENGDU & DUJIANGYAN
 
THE ANCIENT IRRIGATION SYSTEM AT DUJIANGYAN & BEAUTIFUL MOUNT QINGCHENG

This morning start a full day trip out of the Chengdu and into the lush Sichuan countryside to the ancient irrigation system at Dujiangyan. Built in 256 BC, it is considered one of China’s major engineering achievements and was recognised as such by UNESCO in the year 2000. After a local lunch continue to Mount Qingcheng, a 36 peaked massif and one of the most famous Taoist mountains in China and is both scenically beautiful and blessed with many temples.

  ► DAY 4 - CHENGDU TO EMEISHAN via LESHAN
 
THE SUPERB GIANT BUDDHA AT LESHAN & ASCENT TO THE SUMMIT OF EMEISHAN

We start our 2 day trip out of Chengdu by driving 100 miles to the astonishing Giant Buddha at Leshan. Although the 71 meter Buddha is the chief draw it is located at the confluence of the Minjiang, Dadu and Qingyi rivers in a lush park of temples and sculptures that is a pleasure to explore. It is also possible to see the Buddha from the river by boat although we don’t recommend that as the best and most varied views are in the park itself. If you do wish to take the boat ask your guide to arrange this - local payment for the boat trip required.

After lunch we continue on to Emeishan. At the park entrance we take a 2 hour park bus ride after which there is a 30 minute walk up steps to the cable car station for the final leg of the ascent to the summit area where we overnight. Emeishan is one of the four sacred Buddhist mountains in China and now a UNESCO World Heritage site. The summit is over 3,000 meters high so warm clothing is needed year round. It is studded with temples and criss-crossed with tracks and if you have clear weather the views from the summit temple is enchanting.

♨ Meals included: Hotel Breakfast & Restaurant Lunch.

emeishan  

OVERNIGHT GOLDEN SUMMIT HOTEL  ✭ ✭ ✭
The only real option if you want to stay on the mountain summit. What the hotel lacks in comforts is compensated by the amazing location.

 
  ► DAY 5 - EMEISHAN TO CHENGDU
 
FINGERS CROSSED FOR EMEISHAN’S OFTEN SUBLIME SUNRISE & EXPLORING THE TEMPLES

You should be up early this morning to catch Emeishan’s famed sunrise - subject to the ever changing mountain weather of course. The best place to view the sunrise is only a few minutes walk from your hotel. Return to the hotel for breakfast before exploring some of the mountain’s temples and scenery with your guide as you make your way back down the mountain to the park entrance where your driver will be waiting for you.

Return to your hotel in Chengdu or just ask us for suggestions of shows or cultural activities.
