Tour details

You will begin by departing from your hotel, you will then have a 2 hour drive to the Buddha, we will then have a boat trip here and drive to the old town. Also we will have local lunch in the old town, then we start our tea journey. After that you will have a light walk up to the mountain and pick the tea and then we will finally have the experience to make tea by hand in a farmers house. The Buddha is located to the east of Leshan City, Sichuan Province, at the confluence of three rivers, namely, Min River, Qingyi River, and Dadu River. It is carved into the cliffs of Mt. Lingyun. A local saying describes the Buddha like this: "The Mountain unveils a Buddha, while the Buddha fades into the mountain." Looking solemn and stately, the Buddha is 71 meters high. His shoulders are 28 meters wide, head 14.7 meters long and 10 meters broad, with a total of 1,021 chignons of hair clustered on it. Each chignon is as big as a round table. Its drooping ear is 6.2 meters long and each eye is 3.3 meters wide. Its middle finger is 8.3 meters long, and each of its bare feet is 11 meters long and 8.5 meters wide, large enough for more than 100 people to sit on. As a colossal statue the Buddha is so awe-inspiring that every pious Buddhist feels compelled to fall to his knees and to pray for blessings and safety in life. Tea for China is as Coffee & Wine for western culture. Get a comprehensive understanding of this most representing culture in China by visiting a tea plantation on the mountains! Traveling away from the ordinary, we find out life styles of 50s in a lost town - which you can’t really find on a map.
