Leshan, China: World’s Largest Stone Buddha

Buddha Statue at Leshan, China

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
