Dujiangyan Panda Park is located 60 km west to Chengdu downtown. It is a professional organization specialized in panda rescue and disease prevention center in China. The base is a charitable organization devoted to giant panda research and protection, built with sponsors from Hong Kong 's special administrative region (SAR) council. In addition to the normal sightseeing visit, you can take half day volunteer work or take picture with pandas. It is only allowed the people between 12 and 65 years old to do the volunteer work, while there is no age limitation to hold pandas.

The Irrigation System was constructed around 256 BC which plays an important role to control the flood and irrigate the farmland. Besides the dam, you can also see a traditional garden with nice bonsai, and the exquisite Taoist Temple on the hill.

A Recent Review of this tour

Arrangements had to be modified for flight amendments but Daniel was flexible in adjusting our planned arrangements to reflect the revised schedule. He is knowledgeable and well informed on touring options and matters of current and local interest. His English is excellent as is his driving. Also his punctuality and attention to our client preferences was excellent. He found us ideal local restaurants too. Finally, he was able to help us cope well despite massive Golden Week crowds
