Occupying about 2000 sq.km of high-mountainous wood grounds, in 140 km to the northwest from Chengdu, in a zone of a range of Tsyunlayshan, Volun’s natural reserve has been founded in 1975, to the first having taken under protection of big pandas. If you love these lovely animals, your route across China should include visit of this reserve surely! Volun’s high-mountainous plain and the abrupt mountains, turning green the virgin pine and bamboo forests, are a monastery not only pandas. There live also white and big-eared and dark blue and big-eared pheasants and brightly decked, reminding partridges трагопаны; on all reserve small groups of gold monkeys and become already actually fantastic snow leopards meet. Selecting the best time of rest in China, recognise that in the summer animals are more active. Vobshchem, it is not necessary to lay down that you will see these unique animals on local roads – from time to time people for months wander on a crude, hard passable volunsky jungle in hope to face them face to face. But you will have a possibility to admire the big pandas living, let and in bondage, on Volun’s (V30) modern research base where for them spacious open open-air cages in what animals can play or sleep the whole days are made. The base program according to the contents and cultivation of pandas in bondage began to bear fruit in recent years, and to guests in increasing frequency show the young individuals who born here behaving still boychy and is more vigorous, than their forefathers reminding sleep-walkers. Volun consists of 2 zones: almost research base and a malekhanky complex of structures in 7 km on the West on the main road. Its huge part is occupied by hotels and cheap restaurants. It is natural not the best hotels of China, but is absolutely tolerant. In one of buildings the Museum of the pandas (CNY 20) as which exhibits effigies of pandas, spotty leopards and other representatives of fauna serve takes place. The exposition of a museum is perfectly issued, but is not quite informative. Still some tracks escaping in mountains to the west originate. Some of routes lie through quite abrupt gorges. Campaigns on them are not dangerous, but to get under way in a way to bad weather it is not necessary. At fans of mountain campaigns Inchangou (A hollow of silver copies), approximately in 10 km from Volunchzhenya uses bigger popularity. Do not worry about that, how many there is a rest in China, memoirs which you receive in the course of own travel – are invaluable!
