Wear your walking shoes! The "Reserve" is situated in a mountain area that is beautiful to behold. If you want to see all the areas where the pandas are, you will be ascending and descending stairs for several hours. We saw pandas sleeping in trees,...More

Getting close enough to something I have known as a cuddly toy has been a beautiful experience. Seeing the effort put into preserving a rare species of an animal first hand is truly humbling. Perched way up in the Sichuan highlands. China is a wealth...More
