LESHAN 乐山大佛 TRAVEL GUIDE

Leshan's main attraction is the world's largest Buddha, an incredible construction whose toes alone are taller than a man. The Giant Buddha is set within a park full of sculptures and temples and beside a river and all of this is just a day trip from the Sichuan provincial capital of Chengdu.

TOP ATTRACTIONS IN LESHAN

The Giant Buddha is the obvious highlight here but Leshan makes for a relaxing day out from Chengdu. The temple complex is huge and set within gardens with good views over the river from pavilions and plenty of water features. The Giant Buddha itself defies belief and you can climb down the cliff side to his feet.
