We had watched Bao Boa being born on panda cam at the National Zoo in DC in 2013; we visited her there many times. Now she has returned to China and we visited her at Wolong! She was super active, talkative and fun to watch....More

This was a FANTASTIC experience. First, we got up close and personal as volunteers helping to clean the cages and enclosures for the Pandas. This is actually hard work so take it seriously. You will get to feed the panda whose cage you cleaned during...More

The nature reserve was damaged by an earthquake a decade ago and this Wolong nature reserve was rebuilt by the donation from Hong Kong government. It is good and fun to see the pandas. The valley has a nice scenery itself.

We did not book anything in advance. We bought the bus tickets to get to Glenda village directly at the bus station in Chengdu. There was a long queue, so I suggest to consider one hour time to get your tickets and understand how that works. The entrance ticket for the panda base we bought them on the spot! We did not visit other panda bases but this one in Genda!
