A Taste Of Sichuan (12 days)

Experience the charm of Sichuan on this varied tour which takes an in-depth look at the culture of the province, visits ancient towns and monuments, explores National Parks and samples the tantalizing cuisine. Start in the colourful capital Chengdu, from where you will visit the Giant Buddha at Leshan and the famous ancient town of Huanglongxi. Next is the opportunity to spend a day helping out in the Giant Panda Base at Dujiangyan. Continue to the north of Sichuan to explore Tibetan influenced villages and Jiuzhaigou National Park (Nine Village Valley) for mesmerising scenery of ice blue lakes and pine forests overshadowed by snow-capped Himalayan peaks. Return to Chengdu and take a street food tour in the backstreets before flying home.

* Jiuzhaigou is currently closed to visitors following an earthquake in August 2017, and it is unknown when the park will fully reopen. Alternative trips can be arranged to Mount Siguniang or Hailuogou instead, please ask for more details.
