Day 4Wolong Panda Research Center and Chengdu Departure

After breakfast, head back to Chengdu. During the tour, we will stop at the Wolong Panda Research Center. Wolong National Nature Reserve is regarded as the real hometown of wild pandas.

Tragically, the Wolong Panda Center was largely devastated by the catastrophic 2008 earthquake. The new Wolong Panda Research Center was opened to the public in May 2016 and China Highlights was the first tour company to inspect it.

You will see pandas of different ages there. After the tour, have lunch near the center and continue on your journey back to Chengdu Airport. Flights taking off after 7 pm are recommended, to ensure you have enough time.
