Leshan Giant Buddha

乐山大佛   The Leshan Grand Buddha is a UNESCO Wold Heritage Site and is the largest stone Buddha in the world. Usually done as a day trip, it is located about a 2 hour drive outside Chengdu. The Leshan Grand Buddha faces Mount Emei and was built at the confluence of two large rivers to protect those navigating the river from disasters.

There are two ways to see the Buddha, by foot or by boat (or both). By foot you get a close look at the site. By boat you get a good distant view and don’t have to walk up and down the stone steps if this is a problem for you.
