Day 1 Chengdu - Panda Base - Leshan - Emei

We’ll pick you up at your hotel in Chengdu (inside 2nd Ring Road) about 7:00 am and then drive to visit the Panda Research Base in northern suburb of Chengdu this morning. The Chengdu Panda Base was founded in 1987. It started with 6 giant pandas that were rescued from the wild. Through 2007, it has had 110 panda births, and its panda population has grown to 62. It is a huge, beautifully landscaped park.

After lunch (about 13:00 pm), drive to Leshan city to see the famous Giant Buddha which is a statue of Maitreya (a Bodhisattva usually represented as a very stout monk with a broad smile on his face and with his naked breast and paunch exposed to view) in sitting posture. It is 71 meters (about 233 feet) high, and has 8.3-meter-long (about 27 feet) fingers. The 9-meter-wide (about 30 feet) instep is big enough for one hundred people to sit on and the 24-meter-wide (about 79 feet) shoulder is large enough to be a basketball playground. (Optional: ferry boat ride at Leshan Giant Buddha, USD 10/person).

We’ll continue to go to the foot of Mt. Emei around 18:00 pm.

Typically Asked Questions from Our Clients



How much is the price and how much is the extra charge if staying alone in the hotel? I live near the University of Electronic Science and Technology of China (UESTC), is it possible to pick-up, if not please suggest the other place that I can visit the guide.



In your inquiry, you mentioned that you would like to join our 2-day Panda & Leshan Giant Buddha & Mt. Emei Bullet Train Group Tour on 27th. May.

But I am sorry that we don’t have group tours for foreigners. I am afraid you could only have a private tour, of which the cost will not be cheap.

We will come to pick you up since it’s private tour for you.
