What you can expect

As famous as the Mogao Caves in Dunhuang, the Dazu rock carvings are distinguished both at home and abroad. Take this full-day private tour to learn and discover the famous Dazu rock carvings built from 650 during the Tang dynasty.

Today, you will go to Dazu County for a whole day of sightseeing (your guide will meet you at08:30 in your hotel lobby). This is the birthplace of the amazing Dazu rock carvings, which were created from the late Tang dynasty (618~907) to the early Song dynasty (960~1127).

With the theme of Buddhism, the Dazu cliffside carvings are distributed in Beishan, Baodingshan, Nanshan, Shimenshan and Shizhuanshan. You will spend the day visiting the Baodingshan carvings located about 527 meters above sea level. It consists mainly of the Dafowan rock carvings area and the Xiaofowan rock carvings area.

There are about 10,000 statues of Buddha carved on the 500 metre cliff in the U-shaped Dafowan. It is said to be a long narrative mural with plenty of commentary but no repeated content. When the tour ends, you will drive you back to your Chongqing hotel.
