Day 1 - Join trip in Chengdu

With a history that stretches back nearly 2500 years, Chengdu marks the spot where the southern Silk Road began. The city boasts a rich cultural pedigree that has produced some of China's most famous poets, including the 'Chinese Shakespeare', Du Fu, who lived here in the 8th century and is survived by almost 1500 hugely influential poems. Chengdu is also famed for its cuisine, with chili being one of the main ingredients, and is considered to be home to the tea drinking culture of China.

Day 2 - Visit the Panda Research Centre and Wenshu Temple, drive to Dujiangyan

This morning we head to the outskirts of the city to meet Chengdu's most famous residents, the giant pandas. The pandas are said to be China's spoilt children and they spend their days relaxing in large enclosures while the staff bring them bamboo by the bucket load. The centre works hard to breed the pandas with the ultimate aim of releasing them back in to the wild. We return to Chengdu to discover the Wenshu Temple. Built during the Tang Dynasty, the monastery is home to more than 500 paintings and calligraphy exhibits as well as over 300 Buddha statues. We'll depart Chengdu in the afternoon for an hour's drive to Dujiangyan.

Nearby, we also discover the Two Kings Temple and the Dragon Taming Temple, impressive and ornate examples of traditional Chinese architecture, each with its own mysterious and ancient legend. Leaving Dujiangyan we head for Ma Er Kang, a drive of around six hours through beautiful countryside of rolling hills and grassland plains. We'll stop at a couple of villages and viewpoints along the way including Zhuokeji village which was built in the 18th century and has very well preserved stone and wooden houses. The town of Ma Er Kang follows the Dge-lugs-pa or Yellow Hat sect of Tibetan Buddhism observed by the Panchen and Dalai Lamas, and is known for its clear air and surrounding snow capped peaks.

We'll meet the lamas and learn something of the fascinating Jonang tradition. The monastery itself consists of three temples which were all built in different eras, with the oldest being the Querji Temple which dates from the 14th century. There is a small village near the monastery and we'll wander through it's streets getting a first hand experience of the way of life of the Tibetan Buddhists that live there.

This is the most ancient of the four schools of the religion and its teachings are derived from the first translations of Buddhist scriptures from 8th century Sanskrit sources. The lamas and nuns spend eight months of the year teaching, and four months practicing meditation. Our drive takes around eight hours including the stops, and just before arriving in to Baiyu we'll pass through a large grassland area which is carpeted with a wonderful variety of different coloured flowers, before following the river valley in to the town.

Dege means 'land of mercy' in Tibetan and is one of three ancient centres of Buddhism. We take a short walk through the small town and spend a couple of hours visiting the renowned printing house. Often described as an 'encyclopaedia of Tibetan culture', Dege Printing House contains more than a quarter of a million wooden printing blocks of text and images. They cover all aspects of culture including geography, medicine, arts and religion, and provide a unique insight in to the view of the world of the region's people. The collection also includes some of the rarest Tibetan texts in existence. The block printing process still practiced here has remained unchanged for the past 300 years and we'll be able to witness it in progress while we are there. In the afternoon we visit the Gengqing Monastery which was built in 1448 and has a collection of seven smaller monasteries attached to it. They follow the Sakaya school of Buddhism, with a particular focus on scholarship and teaching the Lamdre, or 'path with its fruit', meditation.

The last part of the journey takes us across vast grasslands where we will stop to meet the nomads with their huge herds of Yak before reaching Dzogchen Monastery, where we will be spending the night in the Monastery's guest house. Run by the monks and nuns, our fellow guests are likely to be monks or lamas visiting from other parts of China. (Note that if the monastery decides to hold a festival then the rooms will be required for lamas and monks travelling from other parts of China and we will stay in nearby Zhuqing village instead.

We'll be able to take part in a walking meditation with the locals, circumnavigating the monastery in the Buddhist style. In the afternoon we take a drive of four hours to Ganzi. Just before we arrive, we visit the small Dajin Monastery, set in spectacular countryside just outside the town. Dajin means 'lucky and prosperous land' in Tibetan and the monastery was built 350 years ago as a copy of the Johkang Temple in Lhasa. Once there were around 3000 lamas in residence but today it is just a few hundred.

The monastery follows the Gelug tradition of Buddhism that is led by the Dalai Lama and is famous for its butter sculptures, a tradition that arose from the practice of nomads donating the first butter from each yak as an offering to the Buddha. Over time the sculptures became larger and more elaborate and now the biggest can be several storeys high. We will also take the opportunity to stop at some of the nomadic communities that we are likely to pass.

Held every year on the 15th day of the fifth lunar month of the Tibetan calendar, the nomads gather to race horses, enjoy other nomadic sports, and traditional singing and dancing. Events include various horse races, horsemanship competitions such as picking up an item from the ground while travelling at speed, and performing gymnastics on horseback.

A small, lively town, it is famous for its narrow centuries old suspension bridge, and the site of what is considered by many to be one of the most important events of the Long March, the Battle of Luding Bridge.
