Self guided tour of Leshan Buddha

Self guided tour of Leshan Buddha

The first reason for my visit to Chengdu in China a few years ago was pandas of course. Chengdu is maybe the only place where you can see so many pandas in their own park at Giant Panda Breeding Research Base‎, but there are many other things around Chengdu worth seeing. One of the most known is a giant Leshan Buddha, the largest Buddha in the world. The Giant Buddha at Leshan has for decades been one of the brightest stars among Chengdu’s tourist attractions. It’s located in a beautiful park setting in Leshan, about a two-hour drive from Chengdu. Leshan Giant Buddha sits at the confluence of the Minjang, Dadu and Qingyi. The Giant Buddha, known as Dafo by the Chinese, is carved on the side of the hill, where he sits tall 71 meters high (233 feet) overlooking the river. It took more than 90 years to carve a long time ago. Now it is one of UNESCO's World Heritage Sites.

How to visit Hua Shan in China as an easy DIY trip

How to visit Hua Shan in China as an easy DIY trip

Why visit Hua Shan Hua Shan Mountain is one of the most beautiful mountains in China. It is very popular among tourists because it is easy to reach. There are several ways of various complexity to visit the mountain. One of the meanings of the Hua hieroglyph (华) is “flowery”. Situated in Haying City, Mt. Hua Shan stands 120 kilometres (75 miles) away from Xian. It is famous for its natural vista of steep and narrow paths, precipitous crags and a high mountain range. Its five peaks are impressive attractions and each has its own distinctive charms. East Peak is the best place to enjoy the sunrise; South Peak has the highest altitude; West Peak is the most elegant; North Peak is famous as the Cloud Terrace Peak and Middle Peak is also called Jade Lady Peak. Mt. Hua Shan is also one of the five sacred mountains in China. The Mountain is home to several influential Taoist temples, where many emperors of past dynasties took part in Taoist activities and sacrificed to the god of the mountain, making it a holy land of Taoism.
