Dujiangyan Panda Base and
Center for Disease Control
Dujiangyan (Chinese: 都江堰; pinyin: Dūjiāngyàn) is approximately 55 kilometers (34 miles) from Chengdu, the capital city of Sichuan province. Dujiangyan is home to the Dujiangyan Irrigation Project – the world’s oldest diversion project without a dam which is still in use today. Mount Qingcheng, dominating the Chengdu plains to the south of the Dujiangyan Irrigation System, is said to be the birthplace of Chinese Taoism. And it is also here that you will find the Conservation and Research Center for the Giant Pandas (CCRCGP) – Dujiangyan Giant Panda Base.
The Dujiangyan Giant Panda base is located in Shiqiao (Stone Bridge) Village of Qingchengshan Town. The Dujiangyan Panda Base covers an area of about 51 Hectares (126 acres), and enjoys a favorable climate and natural environment with vast bamboo forest coverage and lovely scenic surroundings.
