... 1200 year old Buddha carved into a cliff where the Dadu and the Min Rivers meet. It's huge. He's 71metres tall, his ears are 7m long, his shoulders span 28m and his big toes are 8 and half metres long. He's in a sitting pose with his hands resting on his knees.

... Village at Teddy Bear hostel just outside the park. It's really cozy, with a great atmosphere, next door to the local bus station and close to the village street food. We get a few hours to check out nearby temples and other interesting sites. That evening, we plan our ascent and descent of the mountain for the following day over some fried noodles and a beer. A 6.30am start, egg and toast breakfast and a Teddy Bear picnic ...
