Giant Buddha from near and far?

Hi All,

I'd like to see the Buddha both on foot from near and from afar. I'm familiar of course with the boat option, but I undestand there're long queues and the boat itself is crowded and in a hurry.

Is there a way to view the statue from the opposite bank?

You can not see the Buddha on the opposite side of the river bank,but you may see the reclining Buddha by standing there.Suppose what if people can see the panoramic view of Buddha for free why people keep long queue to buy tickets?

Sure, you can see the Giant Buddha from opposite river bank for example on the Sun Island (except flooding time). But just like you said, it's afar indeed, and usually it's hazy in Leshan. You should evaluate if your Leshan trip will be worth it if you don't enter the park to feel the Giant Buddha's majesty. The boot view trip not very worth it. Time is too short.
