    Dujiangyan Panda Base
    Stop: 6 hours - Admission included
    7:00am-8:30am: In the morning, your guide will pick you up from your hotel in Chengdu. Your guide will call you at the hotel one day in advance or leave a message to double check the collection time with you. 8:30am-9:00am: Arrive at the Dujiangyan Panda Base and sign up with the assistance of your guide. Get a uniform, gloves, and a volunteer’s card. Your guide will introduce you to the professional panda keepers. The panda keepers can speak simple English but your guide will be there for you at all times, helping to translate and taking memorable photos of you with the lovable pandas. 9:00am–10:00am: Clean the panda enclosures. Panda keepers need to supply fresh bamboo to these national treasures three times a day. The pandas usually eat only 30% of the bamboo, wasting 70% of it. You will need to sweep out the leftovers and replace it with fresh bamboo, as well as clean out the feces. 10:00am-11:00am: Take a break and tour around the panda base. There are about 10 pandas in the base and some of them were born abroad, including the most popular Tai Shan, who arrived from the U.S. in 2010. Have a relaxing walk in the well-paved base and listen to the legendary stories of these pandas. You will also have a chance to meet four naughty red pandas. 11:00am-11:30am: Feed a panda! Pandas are supplied with panda cakes, apples, and carrots four times a day. The panda keepers will show you how to feed a panda with your own hands at close proximity. 11:30am-1:00pm:Have lunch and a rest. A simple Chinese lunch is included in the panda keepers' canteen. Usually there are two meat dishes and one vegetable dish. Rice and porridge are also provided. It is highly recommended for you to prepare some snacks in case you do not like the food there. After lunch, you can walk around to continue exploring or have a rest in the volunteer office or the resting room, where benches are provided. 1:00pm-2:00pm: Watch a panda movie that lasts for about 40 minutes. You will see a special documentary about how the shy pandas mate, give birth, grow up, and are returned to the wild. 2:00pm-3:00pm: More cleaning and feeding. The bamboo you supplied in the morning will have become dry by the afternoon. Remove it and replace it with fresh bamboo. Then feed the pandas with some more panda cakes and apples. 3:00pm-3:30pm: Make panda cakes. Having fed the pandas with panda cakes, aren’t you curious as to how they are made? It is time to make some panda cakes with your own hands. The ingredients will be prepared in advance. Get creative about the shapes of the cakes. 3:30pm-4:00pm: Get a certificate. The volunteer work ends here and you will receive a certificate for this unforgettable day. Say goodbye to the pandas you take care of. Your guide and driver will escort you back to your hotel in Chengdu and you will arrive at around 5:30pm. GOOD TO KNOW: 1. The program is subject to change without notice and is totally dependent on the program of the day at Dujiangyan Panda Valley. We cannot guarantee that the programs listed above will all be provided. We will make our best efforts to ensure your day is special. 2. Pavements of the base can be very wet and slippery. To avoid slipping, please do not wear short pants or slippery footwear.
