Day 1: Monday 16th November - Arrive Xi An, China
Everyone should plan to arrive on, or before, the morning of Monday 16th November. You will be met at the Xi An airport and transferred to our hotel where we have lunch and freshen-up. In the afternoon we will visit the famed Terra-Cotta Warriors and Horses Museum, with visits to Pit 1, Pit 2 and Pit 3, and the Chariot Museum. We will drive back to Xi An in the later afternoon and enjoy a welcome dinner at our Hotel this evening.

Day 2: Tuesday 17th November - Xi An city tour
Today we have full day to explore the City with a guided tour to the Shaanxi History Museum, the Wild Goose Pagoda, Jade factory visit and the Old City Wall. We plan to build in some free time to explore on your own. Of course we can also change the sequence of visits, if people are too tired on the first day, and visit the Terra Cotta Warriors today. Dinner this evening is a dumpling Banquet!

Day 3: Wednesday 18th November - Xi An to Foping Reserve Station
After breakfast we will drive to Foping National Nature Reserve, this reserve located on the south side of the Qinling Mountains has the highest density of wild Giant Pandas ever recorded. We plan to spend the next week here, tracking wild Pandas each day, with the hope of encountering Giant Pandas in-the-wild. We have specifically chosen the month of November to visit as in the late Autumn and early Winter the Pandas come down to lower elevations, and the likely presence of light snowfall should make the Pandas easier to track.

Once we reach the end of the road we must walk into the Station and porters will carry our luggage. The path into the station is an easy walk, but everyone should be in good physical condition as some days the tracking may be quite difficult. Indeed, if you wish to join this trip you should be able to walk up and down sometimes slippery terrain, the trails can be quite steep and scrambling up or down snow-covered slopes may be necessary.
