Leshan is one of the most-visited destinations in Sichuan, only second to Chengdu. The most famous attractions are Leshan Giant Buddha and Mount Emei. The 71-meter Buddha curved on the cliffside sits on the confluences of three rivers. Visitors can have a close view of the Buddha down from narrow paths next to the Buddha or taking cruise to see it in distance. 30-minute drive away is Emei Mountain which is one of the four sacred mountains in China.
