Schedule today: Leave hotel in Dujinagyan at about 8:30 AM, drive about 50 minutes to reach Wolong Shenshuping Panda Base (aka China Giant Panda Garden) hidden in the big mountains of the Wolong Nature Reserve. This base is newly built in 2014 after the old one in Hetaoping was damaged during the earthquake in 2008. And new one is 6 times larger than the old one and the location is delicately chosen for the living and safety of giant pandas as it is highly simulated to pandas’ natural habitat. Now, there are around 32 pandas living in this base. Afterwards, drive towards Mt. Siguniang (2 hours). The road snakes across the beautiful Wolong Nature Reserve, passing by rivers and gorges till it reaches the Balang Mountain tunnel. It’s one of the highest mountain in Sichuan, and sometimes on the mountain, one can see vast spreading clouds - sea. When descending at Maobilang Pass at another side of mountain, one can get the best panoramic view of Mt. Siguniang. In the afternoon, you can choose to rest in the hotel or visit Shuangqiao Valley (sightseeing bus is available) of Mt. Siguniang. Stay overnight in Siguniangshan Town.

Day3: Explore Mt. Siguniang

Schedule today: Mt. Siguniang scenic spot consists of 3 big valleys, namely Shuangqiao Valley, Changping Valley and Haizi Valley, to explore any one takes one full day unless you only want a cursory look. To visit which one totally depends on your preference. If you want an easy one, you can choose Shuangqiao Valley, because most of time you can take a sightseeing bus. The other two are more suitable for those who have an adventurous mind and feel like off the beaten tracks, lots of hiking is involved, horse - riding service (self - paid) is available through those two valleys. Prepare yourself with some water and snack on the way because there is no restaurant inside the valley. If you choose hiking, today must be a tiring day, but the amazing sceneries on the way definitely pay off at end of the day. Most tourists praise that those 3 valleys plus the peaks compose the most beautiful picture s in western Sichuan. Stay overnight in Siguniangshan Town.
