Day 1 Chengdu- Leshan Giant Buddha


Chengdu's New Nanmen Station operates a shuttle service to and from Leshan. The journey takes about 1 hour.


The best seasons for tourism are spring and autumn.

Take a tour bus to Leshan Dafo - the Giant Buddha, which really is a sight to behold. For the best view of the Giant Buddha, which sits on the riverside, take a ride by boat and stop in front of the statue.

As for food, tofu rice pudding is a local delicacy not to be missed.

Accommodation facilities are available near the scenic zone

Day 2 Leshan Giant Buddha-Mt Emei


Car or bus from Leshan to Mt Emei along the Chengdu-Chongqing Loop Line Expressway and the Leshan-Hanyuan Expressway.


The best seasons to visit Mt. Emei are spring and autumn, when the climate is mild and the scenery at its captivating best.

Mt Emei is high and precipitous, and in the interests of conserving energy, it is advisable to take a tour bus halfway up the hill before setting out on foot. Be careful - the monkeys there, whilst seemingly cute, are mischievous and entirely unafraid of people, and are very likely to try and snatch things from you, so keep a safe distance from them.

The peak of Mt Emei is at altitude 3,099m, so people intending to hike to the top need to be well-prepared for the cold conditions. In favorable weather it is possible to travel light all the way to the summit at Jinding where padded clothing is available for rent.

Day 3 Mt Emei-Chengdu


Take the Mt-Emei-Chengdu tour bus for the return trip to Chengdu – about three hours
