This is a pure tour without any compulsory shopping stops. Embark the one day tour from your Chengdu Hotel and head to Leshan Giant Buddha. A boat cruise offers an opportunity to see the Buddha at the foot and feel the total height of the Buddha.
What to Expect
In the morning, you will be picked up by your guide and driver from your hotel in Chengdu. Sit and relax in a private, air-conditioned car, you will get to the attraction after 2 hours’ drive.
Upon arrival, a boat cruise will come first to offer an opportunity of a whole view of the Giant Buddha, gazing at a giant sitting Buddha statue along the cliff of a total height of 71 meters (233 feet) at his foot. Then get to the head of the Buddha, the 1020 twisted buns on his head will clearly be seen. Stereotypically, people think the buns were carved on the head yet the truth is they are made individually and inlayed in the head which helps you understand easily why it took in total 90 years to carve the Buddha along the cliff.
Getting down to the feet of the Buddha to see, you will again be shocked by its scale because over a hundred of people can sit on his foot together at one time. After your whole day trip, you can rest in your comfortable car to get back to your hotel in Chengdu.
