Meeting Pandas 与熊猫相见

One of the highlights of our Jiuzhaigou/HuangLong tour is the visit to Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding.

The first time I saw Panda was at Taipei Zoo. I saw 2 sleeping Pandas lying down on the enclosed platform, blocked by some plants and leaves. Quite a disappointment.

I went to Chengdu Panda Base with high expectation to see Panda in close range, and truly was not disappointed.

We left Chengdu city under pouring rain but fair weather prevailed at the Panda Base which was about 30 kms away. We were truly blessed.

It is an open sanctuary where Pandas are let out in the "imitated" natural habitat. Visitors have the opportunity to observe up-close pandas natural behavior and activities.

We also saw 5 infant pandas at the nursery.
