The Biggest and the Best
Sep 2015 • Couples
The detail of the Tallest Buddha in the World will blow you away. Be prepared to walk up nearly 1000 steps. Stand in the middle of the Echo Chamber. Take in the fresh air and the view from the top. Go there now, before it is on the beaten track and take your time on the climb.
On the way down, pay the 100yuan to ring the 116 TONNE bell in the bell tower!!!

Awesome!

A great experience. Go with a guide if possible for all the details. Be prepared to pay a little extra for a ride or walk uphill for hours. Don't miss the Buddha with the 100 frolicking children and many other interesting sites.

Most amazing temple ever
Sep 2015 • Couples
My husband stumbled upon this on the Internet and made it his mission to go there on our trip to China. I wasn't overly enthusiastic as it involved a 17 hour train trip to Pingdinshan and a 2 hour drive out there.

We made it out there and it was the most amazing sight ever. Nothing can prepare you for the scale and amazing sight until you get there and see it for yourself.

We were the only tourists there and just about all our shots had just us in them. Our guide managed to get us up to the platform so we could stand beside the toe to get even more if a feel for the scale of it.

After the climb to the top my calves still hurt but it was well worth the pain.

When we booked we were told that the train from Shanghai was the only option. After we got to pingdingshan we learnt that we could have flown into Xhengzhou which is a three hour car ride to the temple.

Our guide was called Jack and he was assigned to us through Intrepid and I cannot recommend him highly enough.

My recommendation is to go to this amazing temple and see it for yourself as you won't be disappointed.

A real wonder of the world!
Sep 2014 • Solo
This statue is breathtaking. It really is a wonder of the world, and nobody I know has heard of it. It's in the middle of nowhere and is a trek to get to - about a 2 hour bus trip from the town of Lushan, but it's worth the effort to see the world's biggest statue. There are good English instructions on how to get there at www.springtemplebuddha.com.

On the day I arrived there were more staff than tourists.. it was completely empty. So amazing to see such a magnificent statue in a part of China that is totally peaceful and quiet. At the site is also the world's largest bell. Highly recommend a visit if you are in the area!
