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.

A Recent Review of this tour

We did a private day tour to the Panda base and Leshan Buddha with Victor. It was a great day out. He was enthusiastic and knowledgeable. He answered all our questions. We went to a local restaurant in Leshan for lunch and had a delicious meal at Victors recommendation. It was an amazing tour and I highly recommend it to anyone visiting Chengdu.
