Tour Highlights
Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda
There more than 100 pandas in total live a carefree life in the base. Giant pandas in different ages are raised separately and you will find giant panda nursery inside the base. In the nursery, we will take a look at the adorable newborn pandas with pink skins. There is a feeding time during 9:00 - 11:00 when giant pandas are the most active in a day. While wandering around enclosures shaded by bamboo forest, we can see giant pandas rolling, eating, and playing with each other. Some naughty ones even climb the trees and sit on the branches which can bring you great joy.

This base is a habitat for wild animals as well. Besides of giant pandas, you can see a large amount of rare wild animals in this base, such as peacocks, white swans, and black-necked cranes.
