It took over 1 ¾ hours to get to the bottom but on the way down you did get some great side on views of the Buddha and also a view across the River onto Leshan.

I slept for some of the Journey back and also chatted ...
We arrived in Chengdu at about 12:30 pm. The flight from Shanghai was nice. It was a smooth flight and I spent the entire 3 hours reading, as did Kristen.
