We had an Excellent Guide and took our time climbing up to the top of the local buddha by another route than the one seen in the picture. The crowds were quite large and waiting was common for anything there. The best way to really see the buddha fully is by boat on the river.

We had a great day full of new experiences!! First, we had a high speed train travel to Leshan (sooo cool). Then, the Giant Buddha took our breath (go and see it, it's a must). Taking the river cruise was the best option to see the whole Buddha. Local history and Buddhism
