No pandas to see
It is no problem to get to Foping by bus from Xian. It takes about 4 hours and majority of the way is on highway. We found Qinling Ecolodge Hotel as a good option to stay 3 nights. It is new, clean and made as eco theme, they run Eco museum there. We paid 320 RMB /night. You have to be ready that people do not speak english in Foping, but we were lucky to find one and he guided us on mountains. There are no touristic trails or any signs or maps, so you need some one local.
We were disapointed that we could not see any pandas in Foping panda natural reserve as they have some plague and it takes already two years. But you can see at łeast golden monkeys, that are feeded by ranger and used to meet people.
Any way we had a nice time :-)

Dogwood Blossom Viewing
Mar 2015 • Family
Go to Foping to view the dogwood, early Spring might be the best time to appericate the beauty of natural flowers. Foping county is a small place but really a good choice to do the short excursion during weekend.

Steep thrills!
Aug 2014 • Friends
My sister and I were driven through the Qinling Mountains by jeep by our intrepid " body guard, driver and guide", Rocky, as part of a day trip out of Xian. The new toll road soon turns into a single lane, winding switchback as you ascend surprisingly high into real mountains, with lovely
crags, waterfall, farmlets, and spectacular views. Highlight is when the road is a 2 metre wide track on a spine between two peaks, either side is a pretty sharp drop. Also the thrill of imminent head-ons with traffic going the other way around blind corners - mainly Mr Beanesque three wheel trucks with impossible loads (like a ton of bricks being hauled up to a farm). We just about ran a motorcycle off the side in one such encounter. Charmingly, fellow sightseeers (locals from Xian) were keen to include two middle aged foreign women in their photographs. If you don't enjoy a slight risk of injury or death, and are afraid of heights, you will not like this attraction. Otherwise, it will be one of the highlights of your trip to Xian!
