Leshan Giant Buddha (Da Fo)
Lunch will be on your own arrangement and tour guide will recommend some local specialties to you. Afterwards, drive to Leshan to visit the Leshan Giant Buddha. Here you may take a boat to have a whole view of the Giant Buddha then walk into the park to see it up close (or choose one of these options). The Leshan Giant Buddha is a sitting stone statue of Maitreya carved on a cliff at the confluence of the Min River, the Qingyi River and the Dadu River. Measuring about 233-feet high, this Buddha with a serious expression is the largest stone Buddha in the world and whose carving work took about 90 years. Facing the river, the Buddha has a symmetrical posture and look which have been beautifully captured in its solemn stillness.

At the end of the tour, the guide and driver will transfer you back to the city and drop you off at the hotel. Service ends here.

Highly recommend both these sights. I would definitely so a private tour to both places. The guides know where to go, where to stand on the boat and where to get the best pictures. This was a two day trip for both sights.
