Le Shan Tours and Travels

About Le Shan

Le Shan is situated on the southwestern fringe of the Red Basin in southern Sichuan province. The region is world-famous for the UNESCO World Heritage Listed Dafo (Great Buddha), which is carved into the red sandstone face of Lingyun Hill overlooking the treacherous confluence of the Min, Qingyi and Dadu rivers below it. It was in 713 AD that a monk named Haitong decided to safeguard passing boats by creating a protective icon – a giant likeness of Buddha carved into the cliffs. When Haitong’s idea was accepted, funds were raised via public subscription and local government contributions from the salt revenue.
