Congratulations to the lovely guide who got married two days ago💕🌸💐 It was so interesting to hear about how they chose the date. The Buddha is gigantic. It is hewn into a cliff on the banks of the river . There were viewing points along the route of the climb to the top. There was much to see such as statues and a temple. This was a truly authentic wish you were there experience. I will definitely explore more China tours after this. Thank you
