It is carved out of a cliff face that lies at the confluence of the Minjiang, Dadu and Qingyi rivers in the southern part of Sichuan Province. The stone sculpture faces Mt.Emei,with the rivers flowing below his feet. It is the largest stone Buddha in the world and it is by far the tallest pre-modern statue in the world.

Sichuan homes to more than 80% population of world’s giant pandas. In 2006, the Sichuan Giant Panda Sanctuaries-Wolong, Mt.Siguniang and Mt.Jiajin were inscribed into the World Heritage List by the UNESCO. As the hometown of the pandas, it couldn’t be more suitable to set pandas as the tourism ambassador for Sichuan. Ever since 1869 when the first giant panda was discovered and introduced to human by the French missionary and naturalist— Armand David, near the Dengchigou Church in Baoxing County, human’s pursuit of the giant panda has never stopped.
In 1980, the Chinese government and the WWF cooperated to establish the China Conservation and Research Center for the Giant Panda (CCRCGP) at Wolong National Nature Reserve, which is the first research center on Pandas in history. Thereafter, Wolong becomes a must-see site of Sichuan panda tour and later often referred to as the Wolong Panda Nature Reserve worldwide. Unfortunately, the Wolong Panda Reserve was damaged by the earthquake on 12, May, 2008; after that, all the pandas in Wolong were transferred separately to Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding, Ya’an Bifengxia Panda Base and Conservation and Research Center for the Giant Panda Dujiangyan Base; and from 1st, Oct, 2014 the Dujiangyan Panda Valley in Dujiangyan opened to visitors, also a new panda base near Wolong named Wolong Shenshuping Panda Basewas also completed in 2014 with 32 pandas living there now, so at present there are 5 major panda bases operating normally in Sichuan.
