Leshan & Mt. Emei Tours
"The giant Buddha sits like a mountain, and the mountain stands like a Buddha". This is people's most vivid description towards the Buddha and mountain cultures in Leshan and Emeishan regions. No matter to pilgrims or travelers, Leshan Giant Buddha and Mt. Emei are the two of the most scared destinations in Sichuan, the giant Buddha is the highest stone carved sitting Buddha of Maitreya that could eliminate the scourge of floods and bring people peace; while, Mt. Emei is the ashram for Samantabhadra Bodhisattva, the principle disciple of Sakyamuni, who spreads Dharma and loves. In addition to the considerable and profound Buddhist culture, the natural landscapes around are also quite impressive, converged roaring rivers, endless rolling mountains, gorgeous far-stretching cloud sea plus awe-inspiring sunrise and halo are all breathtaking.
No matter what great Buddha or glorious mountain you visited elsewhere before, you should come to visit the Giant Buddha and Mountain Emei in Leshan if you plan a tour in Sichuan; not only simply because they are on the UNESCO World Heritage Site List, but also mainly for the reason that they are the shrine of the Sichuan province.
