How to get to Leshan Buddha from Chengdu

Most people travel to Leshan from Chengdu and then onto Emei Mountain

Recommend: High Speed Train to Leshan Station

  • 1hr train ride from East Chengdu Railway Station, ticket 54-65rmb
  • take the earliest train at 7:30am if you can, to avoid crowds
  • Then public bus #3 from Leshan Station to the scenic area, 50min, 1rmb
  • Important: do not get on the so-called Free bus at the Leshan station, they take you shopping instead! You will have to walk a long way to get to the buddha
  • Alternatively you can take a taxi for 20rmb

Bus from Chengdu -> Leshan:

  • 2 hour bus ride from Chengdu New South Gate Terminal, or Chengdu Railway Bus Terminal, Leshan Bus Terminal. about 46rmb
  • Then from Leshan terminal you can take local bus #13 to the scenic area, 30min, 1rmb
  • This way is less ideal, the bus is old, dirty and slow, especially if you run into traffic
