Qinling Wild-life Zoo

Attraction details
Reviewed 14 January 2014

It's a zoo, you have to be aware of what you can expect. As i like nature, I tried it. The park is huge. Lots of space. Not as crowded as some zoos in bigger cities (Beijing).
There is nothing special, don't waste your time here. Spend your time in China for something worth! Like in the old street inside the wall.

This was one of the highlights of our tour of China. Since we only had the morning to do this zoological park, we focused on two things, the cage ride and the panda. Some might be disappointed to see only 1 panda in the enclosure. We were just happy to see one in China as it checked off another item on our list-to-see. The cage tour was pretty amazing for us and our 6 year old daughter as you get to see a lot of wild animals up close including lions and bears. If you are on a time crunch, definitely pay for the extra train ride from the ticket area to the entry of the park. That would shave about 20-30 minutes of walking to and from. We had enough time after the cage ride (1hour) and the panda that we went on a camel ride as well. That was a great photo op! They also offer a hop-on/hop-off train ride through the park (2 hours) which; unfortunately, we didn't have time for. Overall, a very fascinating experience!

A free tour bus is included in the entrance fee, as it's such a large place...but it's not worth taking it, as all you will see are camels, sheep and other everyday animals. It stopped for us to see a white tiger, but a telescopic lens was required.

You can hire golf buggies to get around which is novel, but very expensive

I liked the situation of the zoo, as you have nice views of the mountains and you do have a feel you are in the countryside, with open space

Seeing the very talented seals was interesting, but more interesting was the building with the pool, which was something from Eastern Europe after the war...boring but fascinating at the same time

A nice experience was seeing an old man at the top of a Persimmon tree collecting the fruit...seeing us Westerners, he started to throw us down some, which was delicious!

At least at the entrance there was a great open air restaurant which served wonderful dumplings...made up for the disappointment a little!

The zoo is hugely big! Wear comfortable shoes for a looot of walk. View of the mountain itself is a great thing to do. There are a plenty of chestnut trees and persimmon trees in the zoo. Prepare to pay triple price for anything or service.

Apart from the range of animals kept in the zoo, the interesting part is the exhibitions organized where animals can show what they are trained to do. From parrots that can play kind of basketball to seals who can do many tricks. A very good experience for any one who visits
