Winter is a great time to hike this gorge: we had it almost entirely to ourselves. The waterfalls were really lovely, the wall burials were fascinating, and the canyon walls were awe-inspiring.

Picturesque and an easy decent down lots Of steps into the canyon, very pretty Indeed and can be combined with a trip to the Bifengxia Panda reserve. Allow at least 3 hours for a leisurely decent

We loved it, a magnificent 90 minute to 2 hour walk with lots of water, waterfalls, pools hanging coffins, huge cliffs and green vegetation. Do it later in the day after taking the free bus and visiting the Pandas first. It will be almost all...More

The canyon is really beautiful and worth a visit, but the panda center was quite disappointing today. We only saw 4 or 5 including 3 were sleeping. The baby pandas are moved to Wolong until October 2015 but nobody has informed the tourists on the...More

This canyon goes on almost forever and is so worth a visit. We even got to pet a baby tiger at the end!!! Try asking for that in an English zoo??? For the very worn out there is a long lift out which rather spoiles...More

Since you're in the area already, might as well walk through this canyon because there is nothing else better to do in this area except for the Panda. The walk is not natural trekking, as with most Chinese attractions, takes about 3 hours and very...More

After seeing the pandas, I decided to walk back via the trail which is quite easy to find after a short walk on the road from the panda base. It's not a true nature hike, as the path is almost entirely in concrete. Nevertheless, the...More

The scenic spots was not fantastic. Although there are a few spots like the waterfall or lake, but it wasn't what I was expecting. The panda base is more worthwhile if you are in that area.
