Today is a full day excursion to Shennongjia Nature Reserve, known as the ‘Green Pearl’ of China.
Explore this magnificent, ancient forest landscape where high, steep mountains make for some spectacular scenery. The fertile land is home to dense forest including bamboo and vines, as well as brightly coloured flowers and fruits. Shennongjia is also home to the iconic golden monkeys, who can be seen playing in the trees overhead.Lunch will be served at Xiaolongtan, a scenic spot and wildlife rescue centre where you can learn about the local ecology and meet some of the area’s protected wildlife.
Optional: Before returning to Sanctuary Yangzi Explorer, visit the Golden Monkey Protection and Research Base - the only place in the world where you can get up-close-and-personal to the enchanting golden monkey (additional cost). Dinner tonight will be an international buffet followed by a movie night.
