Stunning place to visit! We only went to baodingshan carvings which are supposed to be the best otherwise you need the entire day to see them all. We spent about 3 hours here. The place is peaceful and very beautiful to walk around although some gates were closed. overall I highly recommend this place!

Pictures cannot do justice to the Dazu Rock Carvings in the Dazu District of China. They are religious and secular in nature and date back to the 7th century. My favorite carvings are the ones that show details of everyday life long ago. #merrychristmas #merrychristmas

A not to be missed attraction, the Beishan Stone Carvings deserve to be much more famous than they are, we had never heard about them until we visited the area. They are worth the visit. Be aware that if you hire a guide they may also want to take you on a shopping tour, be firm when you say you do not want to do that. #merrychristmas #merrychristmas
