In what parts of China do pandas live?

There is only one place where giant pandas live in the wild: high in the mountains of central China. There, they live in cold and rainy bamboo forests that are often misty and shrouded in heavy clouds. Once upon a time, giant pandas lived in lowland areas. However, as people built more and more farms and cities on that land, the giant pandas were forced up into the mountains. Today, they live at elevations of 5,000 to 10,000 feet.
