It takes you about 2 hrs to drive to Leshan Giant BuddhaThe Leshan Giant Buddha tall stone statue, built between 713 and 803 (during the Tang Dynasty), depicting Maitreya. It is carved out of a cliff face of Cretaceous red bed sandstones that lies at the confluence of the Min River and Dadu River in the southern part of Sichuan province in China, near the city of Leshan. The stone sculpture faces Mount Emei, with the rivers flowing below its feet. It is the largest and tallest stone Buddha statue in the world and it is by far the tallest pre-modern statue in the world.

Upon arrival, follow the stone steps up to the top of Lingyun Hill, you will be able to see three rivers confluence in front of Giant Buddha, and the head of the Buddha Statue comes into your view. After taking a couple of pictures, then you descend along the red sand cliff to view the phenomenal Leshan Giant Buddha from his feet. Later you will go back to the head of the Buddha Statue again by following a tunnel track carved on the cliff. And explore Buddhist sculptures and murals inside of Lingyun Temple before leaving. If there was a long queue to go down to the feet of giant Buddha, skip the line, and take the river cruise to see Leshan Giant Buddha is recommended.

Your lunch will be arranged at the local restaurant popular with the local people to stay away from the tourists' meals.

After lunch, keep going to visit the Wuyou Temple,  located on the top of a small island, opposite the Giant Buddha Statue. Due to its unique location, it has very open river view and peaceful environment. You will cross a river bridge, follow the stone steps up again, which is covered by the shadow of the trees. Once getting to the top, the open  river views appear in front of you. It is very quiet temple since only the locals come here for praying, and you will visit one of the halls, where there are 500 hundred “Buddha Knights Statues” stand . Each of them stands for one story, definitely your guide will tell you some interesting stories about them.

After the sightseeing, drive you back to Chengdu downtown, your guide will lead you to the Hot Pot restaurant. The hot pot is one of Sichuan's oldest methods of cooking and is still a popular choice for a night out in Chengdu. While the hot pot is kept simmering, ingredients are placed into the pot and are cooked at the table. Typical hot pot dishes include thinly sliced meat, leaf vegetables, mushrooms, wontons, egg dumplings, and seafood. Vegetables, fish, and meat should be fresh. The hot pot in Chengdu can be very spicy because almost everyone lives here loves spicy. But there is also a choice of non-spicy hot pot.
