Make an early start at 8am to reach Bifengxia Panda Base before 10am, when pandas are at their most energetic. Bifengxia translates as ‘Green Peak Valley’. It has dense forest, numerous waterfalls, and breathtaking scenery. Take a walk there and enjoy the natural environment of these adorable fluffballs.

From Bifengxia, drive on the longest national highway (G318) to Luding through the stunning 13-km-long New ErlangshanTunnel to see tumultuous Dadu River.

Continue to Moxi Town, and take a late afternoon walk on the ancient streets and relax. As the gateway to the Hailougou Glacier National Park, the town is dotted with local workshops, homestay hostels, restaurants, and cozy bars. A small Catholic church was built there in Chinese architectural style and Chairman Mao was said to have stayed there during the civil war.
