Wendy Wu Sichuan Explorer Itinerary: 

Days 1-2: Fly to Chengdu

Fly overnight to Chengdu, capital of Sichuan province. Depending on your time of arrival the rest of the day is yours to start soaking up the local culture.

Day 3: Leshan Grand Buddha

Travel to Leshan to visit the Grand Buddha. The 71-metre Buddha, the world's largest and UNESCO World Heritage-listed, is carved into a hillside overlooking the confluence of the Dadu and Min Rivers. Completed in the year 803, it is said that the Buddha's presence has calmed the turbulent waters of the river. A short boat trip will give an even better perspective. Continue to Mount Emei.

Day 4: Explore Mount Emei

Mount Emei is the cradle of the Buddhist religion in China with the first temple built here, on its peak, in the 1st century. Pilgrims and tourists mix amongst the lush vegetation and inconspicuous old temples, all admiring the striking and diverse natural beauty of the mountain and its setting. Spend the day soaking up the ambience and exploring. If the weather is right the summit offers extraordinary views of the river below.

Day 5: Mengdingshan Tea Plantation 

Take a tour of Mengdingshan Tea Plantation to learn about the entire tea making process and its fascinating history.

Day 6: Pingle Ancient Town

Drive to Pingle Ancient Town. Dating back to the Han Dynasty, Pingle was a stopping point on the Tea Horse Road. Take time to walk through its maze of teahouse-lined streets before seeing the bamboo forest from above on Jinjigu Suspended Rope Bridge.

Day 7: Dujiangyan Panda Base

Located in the forested Sichuanese countryside north of Chengdu, Dujiangyan offers refuge to Giant Pandas with the ultimate aim to reintroduce them into the wild.

Day 8: Taoist Mt Qingcheng

You'll be welcomed by a Taoist priest at the Old Master Pavilion on the summit of Mt. Qingcheng. Take the opportunity to speak to him and learn about his religion. You'll also be shown the art of Chinese painting and calligraphy.

Day 9: Nine Villages Valley

Enjoy the drive through spectacular mountain scenery to Nine Villages Valley, where you'll spend three nights.

Days 10: Nine Villages Valley

A national park of ragged peaks, sapphire lakes, abundant forests and rushing waterfalls, the Nine Villages Valley (Jiuzhaigou National Park) is considered one of China's most beautiful areas. Named after the nine typical Tibetan settlements scattered through the valley, the park is a World Biosphere Reserve, full of endemic flora and 140 species of birds. Whilst the scenery transforms with the seasons it is always spectacular and you will spend time in the depths of it, revelling in your arresting surroundings.

Day 11: Shuzheng Village

Visit Shuzheng village, the largest settlement in the park. Spend some time with a local Tibetan family who will give you an insight into daily life in Nine Villages Valley. A lovely afternoon walk takes you from Rhinoceros Lake, passing Tiger Lake ending at Reed Lake. 

Day 12: Huanglong Pools

Hundreds of vivid pools in striking colours, formed by thousands of years of mineral deposits, tumble gently down through the bright green forests of the Huanglong Valley. The whole area is studded with waterfalls and hot springs and, as it is relatively undiscovered, is a pleasure to explore. There is an option to take the chairlift up to Huanglong Temple at the head of the valley for excellent views over the whole valley before we continue on to the delightful Mao County.

Day 13: Qiang Minority Village

You will visit a minority village where you'll be joined by a local elder, who will talk through the history and culture of his people, you will also meet a local family. Later in the afternoon, drive to Chengdu.

Day 14: Local Chengdu 

Spend the morning absorbing the local cultures at Peoples' Park and even join in the Square dancing.

Days 15: Fly Chengdu to UK

Fly to the UK, arriving home the same or following day.
