Wonder at the scale and craftsmanship of the world’s largest and tallest stone statue, carved into the sandstone cliff where the Min and Dadu rivers join. Leshan Giant Buddha faces the water at the point where the rivers converge, which the mountain where the statue stands is at the eastern base of Mount Emei. From the water it is awe-inspiring and from the top, you’ll appreciate the carving’s intricacies, as well as the beauty and significance of the amazing natural site. Built over 1,200 years ago and taking 90 years to complete, this statue towers 71 meters above the rivers and is most worthy of a visit – and your admiration.
