The city of Leshan is about 1+ hours from Chengdu. I took the local bus & it was really crowded. There was no fixed schedule as well. As soon as it's full, it leaves. But, there are many buses, about 10-15 mins interval.
The Grand Buddha is quite a sight though you've to tag along huge crowds to get to see it. In my opinion, it's still worth the hassle. Afterall, it's the largest stone Buddha in the world carved over a period of 90 years (731-803AD).
Total Height = 71 m.
Head = 14.7 m.
Shoulder = 28 m.
A marvel to behold! An amazing feat by any standard! This statue was carved out of a mountain & deems to be the largest... more travel advice
