If you take a taxi to the Giant Buddha i recommend getting out as soon as you get to the big brown stone gate and walking the rest of the way. Once you get up to the Buddha there are easy photo locations that allow you to get a good selfie with the head of the Buddha but not the whole thing. If you want to take photos or see the whole sculpture you’ll have to stand in an insanely long line for an hour or two depending on the time of day.
Leshan Buddha, also known as Lingyun Buddha, is located at Lingyun Temple on the East Bank of Nanminjiang River in Leshan City, Sichuan Province. It is near the confluence of Dadu River, Qingyi River and Minjiang River. Leshan Grand Buddha Scenic Area belongs to the national 5A-level tourist attraction. The Great Buddha is a sitting statue of Maitreya Buddha. It is 71 meters high. It is the largest stone statue on a cliff in China. Leshan Buddha was excavated in the first year of Kaiyuan in Tang Dynasty (713), and completed in the nineteenth year of Zhenyuan (803), which lasted about ninety years. As a Sichuan native, Leshan Buddha has been there two or three times, including before and after the Buddha "cosmetic surgery". Watching the sleeping Buddha across the river naturally doesn't matter. The Buddha sitting at the junction of the three rivers is very magnificent, but to see the Buddha from a close distance, you have to queue up and down the narrow ladder beside the Buddha. There are also those who look up to the Buddha by boat in the middle of the river. Last year, I went to Leshan and found a good place to see the Buddha, the Dafo Dam across the river. From riverside to Zhongba by boat, and then to Dafoba by boat, the ticket is only 1 yuan, and the return is 1 yuan. There are places for tea and meals on the island, and most of them are for local people to visit the island. It's a little far from the Buddha. It's cloudy on the day we went. If the weather is good, the view is also good. What's even more rare is that it adds to the experience of sailing on the island. If time is enough, how beautiful it would be to make a cup of tea, sit opposite the Buddha and watch the torrential river flow past with the Buddha.
You Zanle Mountain Buddha Since ancient times, Leshan Huisanjiang, Dadu Minjiang Qingyijiang, if the flood of the three rivers rises sharply, the huge wave whirlpool boat dies, Haitong Master as the leader, chiseling Buddha to fight the flood first. Afterwards, the Tang Dynasty set aside silver and built Buddha statues for four generations. When Maitreya Buddha was completed, it filled in the whirlpool and had less wind and waves. Cliff stone carvings build giant Buddhas, the country of Tianfu has many skillful craftsmen. The Great Buddha of Leshan flies through the clouds, and the Minjiang River is bordered by the Zhensanjiang River in the east. The Buddha sits seventy meters high and looks up with all his heart. A Zhang Fengmu looks at geomantic omen, and his ears are like radar listening to all directions. Standing at the bow of the boat, leaving a shadow to praise the giant Buddha statue of the world. Storms and rains do not blink, the earth shakes not disorderly. Chuanfu's children are ambitious and beautiful for thousands of years.
loved it! the giant Buddha is indeed giant! the entire place radiates peace. totally worth the climb. the adjacent areas are very well maintained and there are stalls everywhere for tourist convenience. book train tickets in advance both to and from Leshan. you can buy tickets using wechat at the small stall to the right side of the ticket office. i don't recommend the 9 turns cliffroad because there is a long queue for it. you get to be on the cliffroad for a very short amount of time while wait in queue for the major part of it.
Went here in January, what meant almost no tourists, what made the trip very relaxed. Nice park and a lot to see. The time I visited it the Giant Buddha was under construction, so you couldn't properly see him, but no one told us and we still needed to pay the price. What was actually the only real thing to complain about the prices. You have to pay twice. Once to see the Giant Buddha and again for the rest of the scenic area, which I can highly recommend. Overall I paid 90 yuan for a student rate. All in all I can highly recommend that place.
What kind of Bamiyang is taller than other countries, the world's largest, shaking the mountain is a statue of Buddha, and Buddha is a mountain. Go to Leshan to recommend a day around Big Foga, stay in the city at night, have delicious food, snacks, and have a barbecue in Leshan.
It's really shocking. It's worth visiting. I suggest you must find an explanation. The Leshan Buddha and the Buddha Du totaled 200 yuan. The explanation along the way is very fascinating. It is suggested that we go to Zhanggong Bridge for dinner and "Xie Lao Wu Qiao Beef" in Zhanggong Bridge for two consecutive days. Why do we go for two consecutive days and finish the first day with endless aftertaste?
Leshan is not very tall soon climbed up the mountain to see the Buddha, the statue of the Buddha is magnificent and magnificent, have to admire. It's a pity to see a lot of Buddha statues in the middle of the journey. Some of the good ones haven't been removed. Standing on the hill, you can see the convergence of the three rivers. The Minjiang Qingyi River Dadu River has a good scenery. Because there are many pedestrians with children down the river, you can return to the original road and go to the dock to see the Buddha from a different angle. The scenic spots are very standard. The guides have a unified price. The tricycles of the scenic spots are also arranged in an orderly line, and the uniform price of clothing is unified. See the Buddha by boat, see more complete, buy tickets will soon be able to see, the whole journey will be half an hour, it is worth seeing.
Leshan can be reached in an hour by coach from Mount Emei. During holidays, there are many people. In addition to queuing at the entrance to buy tickets, there is a long queue to see the Buddha inside. It takes about several hours to see Leshan Buddha during the eleventh long vacation. The procession begins at the top of the mountain, which is the head of the Buddha. Slowly marching along the mountain road from the right side of the Buddha, you can see the statues of the Buddha from different angles. Finally, he went to the foot of the Buddha and walked out of the trestle on the left side of the Buddha. You can also see the river in the mountains, and there are cruise boats sailing to the river at the foot of the Buddha, so that you can see the panorama, which is also a good choice.
