This canyon goes on almost forever and is so worth a visit. We even got to pet a baby tiger at the end!!! Try asking for that in an English zoo??? For the very worn out there is a long lift out which rather spoiles this part. David, Lily (Yaan Girl) and Katie 1/2 a Ya girl!!!

Since you're in the area already, might as well walk through this canyon because there is nothing else better to do in this area except for the Panda. The walk is not natural trekking, as with most Chinese attractions, takes about 3 hours and very enjoyable once you get passed the first half an hour. Some of waterfalls are very... More

After seeing the pandas, I decided to walk back via the trail which is quite easy to find after a short walk on the road from the panda base. It's not a true nature hike, as the path is almost entirely in concrete. Nevertheless, the weather was a cooling low 20's C and there was no crowd.

The scenic spots was not fantastic. Although there are a few spots like the waterfall or lake, but it wasn't what I was expecting. The panda base is more worthwhile if you are in that area.

We decided to connect panda zoo visit with canyon hike. Admission 118 RMB - quite pricey. But we really liked it! First, take a bus to panda zoo. After you finish visit, return back to zoo gate, go left, pass some houses, let check your ticket and you are on the top of canyon. It starts with a small artificial... More

The scenery at the gorge is fantastic. The walk is fairly easy, downhill all the way through a gorge dotted with streams and waterfalls. There is a waterfall at the end of the walk which is truly breathtaking. A relaxing way to end a day after visiting pandas.

Very steep gorge (side to side) that you can take an elevator to the bottom and walk out without difficulty (minor fitness required). There were some steeper, narrow sections but really was on a well maintained trail. The temple at the end was interesting. I'd not like to do it in the rain.

The 1 hour walk was amazing. There were numerous waterfalls, rock ledges and scenery was beautiful. Surprisingly it was not a difficult walk that we has expected.

This is a great finish to the trip after visiting the panda preserve. It is in the same area and VERY well maintained. You walk mostly down hill/stairs/stream along a well maintained walkway for about 7.5km. You walk along a stream w/ some awesome waterfalls. Now it rained like crazy the night before so it might have been better than... More
