Day trip to enjoy the pandas and the buddha
The panda base is a non-profit research and breeding facility for giant pandas and other rare animals. It was founded in 1987. It started with 6 giant pandas that were rescued from the wild. By 2008, it had 124 panda births, and the captive panda population has grown to 83. Its stated goal is to "be a world-class research facility, conservation education center, and international educational tourism destination. "
The Leshan Giant Buddha was built during the Tang Dynasty (618-907AD). It is carved out of a cliff face that lies at the confluence of three rivers. It is the largest stone Buddha in the world and it is by far the tallest pre-modern statue in the world.

Wenhao "Victor" provided a tour of a lifetime, of course the pandas helped too! We had a wonderful time, he is a very professional and friendly guide providing lots of useful information as we traveled to the Panda facility and the sitting Buddha. His background working at the wild Panda reserve allowed him to provide insights that other guides could not. Also he is an excellent driver and the restaurant that he selected for lunch was wonderful. We recommend him very highly!
