How to Plan your Dujiangyan Tour

Usually, tourists take a side trip from Chengdu to visit Dujiangyan Irrigation System. Most of them would spend two days there, the first half a day around (3~4 hours) to explore the magical Dujiangyan Irrigation System. And during the rest of that day, they will head to Mount Qingcheng to indulge in the peaceful natural forest and holy Taoist culture. Stay one night at Dujiangyan City or Qingchengshanzhen. Get up early in the second day and join the whole-day panda volunteer program in Dujiangyan Panda Base. During the program, volunteers will see as many pandas as possible, clean the pandas’ enclosures, prepare special panda food, chop bamboo and feed the cute pandas... For those who choose not to participate in the panda volunteering program can go back to Chengdu for accommodation after the first day tour.
