Tour to Leshan and Emeishan

As the global largest Buddhist stone sculpture, the Giant Buddha is 71 meters high. It is carved out of a cliff face that lies at the confluence of the Mingjiang River, Daduhe River, and Qingyi River. The stone sculpture faces Mt. Emei, with the rivers flowing below his feet. The Giant Buddha is 14.7 meters long and 10 meters wide. The Buddha's ears are 7 meters long, insteps 8.5 meters broad, and a picnic could be set on the nail of his big toe, which is 1.5 meters long.
As one of the four Sacred Buddhist mountains in China (the others are Mt. Putuo, Mt. Wutai and Mt. Jiuhua), Mt. Emei is traditionally regarded as the ritual site for Puxian Buddha (Bodhisattva of Universal Benevolence). It is famous for the four marvelous spectacles: the cloud sea, the sunrise, the Buddist Halo, and the Magic Lanterns.
In 1996, the Mount Emei Scenic Area, including Leshan Giant Buddha Scenic Area was listed as a world natural and cultural heritage site by UNESCO. It was not damaged by the 2008 Sichuan earthquake.
