The Leshan Giant buddha is one of the most breathtaking places in the Sichuan province. Not only for the buddha, all the enclosure and the temple area is amazing, starting with the main temple and the mountain, with the different ways that crosses through caves and stiff stairways.
My suggestion is that make the whole visit: go further from the lesshan buddha and get into the inner part of the park crossing the jungle area, the oriental one (the dongfang fodu gongyuan). You'll have to pay an extra cost but is really worthy. After a while you will enter a big cave and you will get out to see a giant buddha carved in rock, and next to it, an enormous and stiff stairs that goes down. The landscape is amazing.
