Get around[edit]

Bus #1 and #8 (both 1.5¥, Aug 2013) travel from directly opposite Jiajiang bus station to the main gate Thousand Buddha Cliff. From the main gate, the cliffs containing the Buddhas and ticket office are about a ten or fifteen minute walk along the riverfront.

The cliffs can be considered a good stopover on the way to Chengdu from Emei (or the other direction), as they break up the 2-3 hour journey midway. Whilst there are many more higher rated sights in the Sichuan area (The Thousand Buddha Cliff is rated 2A by the tourism authority), it is typically extremely quiet and often a nice place to visit to get away from the thousands of tourists that flock to the other higher rated areas. It is debatable as to whether it is worth a day in a tight travel schedule.

See[edit][add listing]

  • Jiajiang Museum of Handmade Paper, (Just after the Thousand Buddha Cliff, continue along the riverside about 100m). Explaining and displaying the ancient local rice paper industry. Free.  edit
  • Thousand Buddha Cliff (qiān fó yán), (Served by Bus 1 or 8 from the main bus station). At least 163 ancient carvings of buddha carved into the riverside cliff along with temples and a hillside path through the woods. Many of the Buddhas have had their head smashed in, presumably during the Cultural Revolution. ¥5 (Aug 2013).  edit
