Labahe Nature Reserve is widely regarded as one of the best places in the world to view Red Pandas, but even at their most conspicuous and most active during daylight hours, it will still require a good amount of hard work and patience to find them. In recent years China Wild Tour is proud to have organised a number of successful Chinese Red Panda tours in Sichuan.
Sightings of the charismatic Chinese Red Panda will be the main focus of the tour but in addition we will hope to see other inhabitants of
the high mountains such as Red-and-white Giant Flying Squirrel
and Tibetan Macaque together with other small but interesting
selection of birdlife.
