March 7/14, 2020

WHAT’S THIS ADVENTURE ABOUT?

We are offering TWO China tours and a special extension. Why? China is a big country and these 3 adventures are all different and exceptional. Our local guide is a master Chinese guide! Our 3rd tour to beautiful China, will offer you a unique holiday! We target locations less visited and offer some of the world’s rarest nature. Our main tour also offers an extension.
Combined, these tours will guarantee outstanding cultural experiences through to Panda, Golden Monkeys, mountains that are a landscape photographers dream and rarely visited tribal groups that are still dressed traditionally and live similar to their ancient ancestors. This tour also includes the famous Terra-cotta Army!

Our accommodation is of a high standard!

We include our famous WPA professional photo guide and a local expert guide throughout the tour to help you enjoy your adventures. Your guides will work hard to maximise the many unique photo opportunities of this photo holiday.

China is richly endowed with nature and has beautiful mountains, trees, rivers, lakes and markets. We target these important jewels of a land that is not commonly offered as a photography destination. Be prepared for beautiful and different photo opportunities!

AND we are linking another fantastic adventure – Japan. We return to Japan and it’s nature and wild places.

WE INCLUDE…

A complete land package! All your accommodation, meals and services as per itinerary. You simply need to organise flights and to get yourself to the start of the tour and for the departure. Julia is happy to help you.

ITINERARY TO ADVENTURE…

DAY 1 – HANGZHOU TO XIAN
March 7

After lunch, (Tour 1 ends – Extension begins…) We fly to Changsha and connect flight to Xian.
Xi’an, has over 3,000 years of recorded history and has the capital of 12 dynasties, though it has been known as various names, most notably as Chang’an. It was also the starting point of the Silk Road, where camels were loaded for their long and perilous journey to Central Asia. Xi’an has recently become an important centre for the central government’s drive to develop western china. As an economic center for the region, Xi’an is in a natural position for further development; Aviation is already an important industry for the city.

DAY 2 – XIAN TO GOLDEN MONKEY RESERVE
March 8

In the morning, we visit and photograph the Terracotta Army, created to guard the tomb of Qin Shihuang, the first emperor to unite China. One of the most remarkable archaeological discoveries of all times, the Terracotta Army is designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. We leisurely admire this vast array of soldiers. After this special experience, we take a 1 hour high-speed train to Foping Golden Monkey Nature Reserve. Foping is located in north of Qinling Mountain. Qinling Mountain is the home of giant panda, golden monkey, Takin, red panda and other wildlife. There are 39 groups of golden monkey living in Qinling Mountain Range, in total 4,000-5,000 monkeys. The golden monkeys we will photograph are one of the three sub groups of total 200 monkeys. There are four species of Golden Monkey in Asia, three of them living in China and one species is living in Vietnam and Myanmar. Between 1862-1874, French Missionary Pere David found giant panda, golden monkey and a lot of wildlife and botany that was only found in China. Golden Monkey is also called snub-nosed monkey, they are living 1,500 to 3,300 meters above sea level. Their main food is fruit, bamboo shoot, leaves, fresh buds, fresh branch, etc. Every birth is one child, and young male monkeys will be driven out of the family, the ratio male monkey versus female monkey is 1:2. The lifetime is 20-25 years old.

DAY 5 – XIAN TO CHENGDU
March 11

After a morning photo session, we take a 2 hours high-speed train to Chengdu. Early on 17 January, 1953, a wounded panda was found in Dujiangyan, and was rescued to the former Hutoushan Breeding centre of Chengdu Zoo. In order to better preserve giant panda, Chengdu municipal government founded the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding in March 1987. There are around 80 giant pandas, red pandas and other animals in the base. The giant panda is an endangered animal found only in western China. Because of human encroachment, the panda’s habitat is now reduced to six isolated patches, mainly in Sichuan. As estimated, there are 1000-1500 wild pandas living in the mountains in the rim of Qinghai-Tibet Plateau. One reason why the habitat range of the pandas is limited is because they only eat specific species of bamboo found within their home range, and the areas are becoming progressively smaller.
