During our time in Chengdu, Jesse and I took a quick day trip to Leshan to see the world’s largest stone Buddha, carved into the mountainside, overlooking a turbulent river. The statue was breathtaking. And getting there and back left us a bit breathless too…
Leshan Travel Tips:
- Go early!
- Be prepared for crowds: we were lucky to be there on a cloudy weekday, and we didn’t have to deal with large crowds. But a sunny, nice day at peak season?
- Wear comfortable shoes and be prepared for lots of stairs
- Bring water, especially for hot days
