"Leshan Giant Buddha" Leshan's Giant Buddha Tip by Green_Frog

Leshan's Giant Buddha, Chengdu: 21 reviews and 51 photos


Caught the bus/coach to Leshan (44 yuans each) - home of the 71m Buddha. Upon arrival at Leshan Town you have to catch a local bus #13 (only 1 yuan) to Big Buddha. We decided to have lunch prior to visiting the Buddha as it took approx three hours to get there - not a great choice around this area to eat and it's a bit of a lucky dip as most restaurants didn't have English menus - find one with pictures!!

Entry was quite expensive 90 yuan per person - much cheaper for the locals!! You have to climb up the mountain to the top - amazing views along the way and then you reach the head of the Giant Buddha with snails coiled on his head - all carved out of rock by the monks - very spiritual place.
