This fantastic private tour from Chengdu enables guests not only to visit the Panda Breeding Reserve to see these adorable animals up close, but also to see the Leshan Giant Buddha from land or water.
What to Expect
This 1 day private combination tour in Chengdu is the perfect opportunity to see one of the world’s most beloved but also endangered animals, the Panda, as well as a chance to stand in the presence of the great Leshan Grand Buddha. More than anything, this tour will provide an excellent introduction to the local culture and story of Chengdu.
The tour begins with a morning drive to the Panda Breeding Reserve where we will stay from 7:30 - 11:00. At the reserve you will be able to see these adorable animals up close. You'll also find out how this endangered species is being protected in China and what you can do to help out.
Following the pandas, the tour will then drive for about 2 hours to visit Leshan Giant Buddha, where we will stay until 16:00. At 71 meters the Giant Buddha (also known as Dafo) is the tallest stone Buddha statue in the world. An 8th-century monk carved it out of a cliff face on the river. You can take a little walk on the hill that will lead you very close to the Giant Buddha, or your can even take the boat and enjoy a breathtaking view from the river.
Your tour will end at 16:00, when you will be driven back to Chengdu hotel or Chengdu airport.
