    Awesome report, Phil!
    When I was in Sichuan for a purely scenic tour with my family, I inquired about going to Baihe, but I didn’t get a response, as far as I remember. Who did you contact in order to see the monkeys there?

    Cool pictures of the cat and the takin!!

    Charles, Tomer, Dominique, Thank you and glad you liked the pictures. It was only a short trip but i think we got a few goodies.

    Sorry Tomer, i didn’t answer your question – Sid goes to Baihe for birding trips and heard about the Monkeys from a ranger there, a Mr. Tang. He can arrange to take you there, Monkeys far from guaranteed though.

    Gotcha! (Sorry for late response. lol)
    Next time I’m in China I will include this place in the itinerary.
    I’m secretly waiting for developments in Giant Panda tracking in China… If not in Foping then maybe in other places..?
    But I will be back in Sichuan in the next 4-5 years for sure.. and I will try to contact this so-called Sid 🙂
