Wonderful to see how well they are taking care of, the grounds are impeccable, each Panda has his own back yard of at least 2 acres, a blessing in disguise

Absolute Panda created the perfect panda experience for my 16 year old son and me. We had two days of volunteering at the Dujiangyan Panda base. For two days, we had up close and personal encounters with adult pandas. We cleanded their enclosures, broke giant...More

Totally worth it! Even though I missed the opportunity to take n hug a panda photo taking, volunteering is more than enough. I didn't go through any tour agent. After some cost calculation vs on my own. Tour> USD260 tour guide + USD110 Volunteer work...More

Ticket for entrance: RMB 58 per adult. You should visit from 9AM to 10AM because during this one hour panda is active as I heard about. I came there about 11.30 and all of them were sleeping. Luckily I saw them sleeping outside, so I...More

A trip to China with teenagers was a 2/10 until they hugged and sat next to a panda. The rating got revised to 7/10. Totally pricy but totally worth it according to my animal loving kids.

The place is a sanctuary for the pandas. It's really a must see when you are in Dujiangyan. The place is very well maintained and free wheelchairs and umbrellas are available if you so require. Please ensure you do not tap on the glass barriers...More

Researching my trip. I was extremely confused at all the different "Panda bases." This one is the one located in Dujiangyan and I saw lots of signs around calling it "Panda Ark." Do not get this confused with the Chengdu base or Panda Valley which...More

Most exciting, worth every penny and cutest part of our trip. I'm against keeping wild ones in captivity. But after visiting here and knowing the pandas from close I'm sure pandas are safer and taken care of, here. Clean and very well maintained premises. Undoubtedly,...More
