Private Leshan Buddha Tour

9.20 / 10
5 reviews | 47 travellers
The excursion is worth doing both the cruise and seeing the Buddha from above and below. We went in November and down to then make the ascent there are large queues and a huge plug, it is a bit overwhelming. We did the excursion with Jorge who took us to taste the typical gastronomy of Leshan and we liked it a lot.

Visit the famous imposing statue in southern Sichuan with this Leshan Buddha Tour from Chengdu. Discover the history of one of the sculptural wonders built during the Tang Dynasty

Private Leshan Buddha Tour

After picking you up at your hotel in Chengdu, we'll head to Leshan. The city is in the Chinese province of Sichuan located approximately two and a half hours away.

On arrival, we'll begin with a guided tour around the Leshan Giant Buddha. This colossal sculpture standing at 71 metres (232 feet) high and declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site, was sculpted in the 8th century into the Mount Lingyun cliff. This site is spectacular because of its location, as we'll see from the top of the sculpture. In fact, the Giant Buddha was built to serve as a protector for all those who navigated the turbulent waters in the area. On the tour, you'll learn more about the curious facts surrounding the location.

From the summit where the Great Buddha is located, we'll discover why the local saying "The mountain is Buddha and Buddha is the mountain" is evident here. The magnificent sculpture is also a pilgrimage centre for many devotees from many corners of the country.

The tour will continue to the nearby Lingyun Temple, where we'll observe a range of books and objects related to the process of constructing the Giant Buddha. We'll also visit its different pavilions decorated in the Buddhist style, with great care. The tour will end by going to a restaurant in the area, where you'll have free time to taste the traditional Sichuan cuisine.

After lunch, we'll return to Chengdu.
