Minshan Mountains, China
Our hotel base at the wild panda reserve provides comfortable accommodations for guests to the remote nature sanctuary we visit in southwest Sichuan Province. All rooms have private bathrooms with toilet, basin and spacious shower. A large dining room offers family-style meals, though guests besides ourselves are generally few. Internet service is available in the main lobby. The hotel shop sells souvenirs and limited grocery and sundry items. The hotel is a convenient base for our excursions into some of China’s best wild habitat for giant pandas and a host of other endangered wildlife species that flourish in the deep forests of the Minshan Mountains. It is the only accommodation in the region, situated within a protected area recognized as a Grade I nature reserve by WWF, for its significance as a global biodiversity hotspot.
