  1. Begin your adventure with a prompt pickup by our knowledgeable English-speaking tour guide and skilled driver from your hotel in downtown Xi'an. Embark on a scenic journey towards Yangxian County, where the captivating Crested Ibis Nature Reserve awaits.

    Nestled in the heart of Shaanxi province, the Crested Ibis Nature Reserve is a haven for one of the world's most endangered bird species, the crested ibis. Once gracefully soaring across Japan, China, Korea, Taiwan, and Russia, the crested ibis has sadly disappeared from much of its historical range. Today, this majestic bird finds its last refuge in the pristine landscapes of Shaanxi, making the reserve a crucial bastion for the preservation of biodiversity.
