Today we had an early start; on the road by 7:30am, along with a 4 hour bus drive to see the Leshan Giant Buddha. Once arrived, we all decided we would get the best view if we were to go to the feet of the Buddha. The wait was long but well worth it! It was so extremely beautiful; like nothing I have ever seen before. We all made sure to take many photos then began our track back up the mountain.
Half of the group continued to venture around the giant Buddha while the other half, Jonathan, Celeste, Alex, Sydney, Simran, Jessica and I, decided to pay for another ticket to see the caves. The caves were unbelievable. We were able to see two more giant Buddha’s in caves and many large wall carvings. I have to say, it was one of the most beautiful things I have ever experienced.
As we start off our 4 hour drive back to the hotel, I cannot help but feel extremely grateful to have been able to experience the giant Buddha and to be surrounded by sick amazing, fun, caring and adventurous peers.
