You can make a boat trip to visit the Leshan budda.Datong is not, shall we say, a
nbsp;distinguished city, but there are even a couple of other sites with very
nbsp;unique examples of Buddhist statuary.N.N.Buddhist art admirers.In the older section to the
nbsp;far right of the complex there are a couple of oversized statues to make
nbsp;up for the big one in Leshan. But not so very hard: I met there two people
from Stuttgart, 89 and92 years old, who made the walk up and down along
the Leshan budda.If it's examples of monumental Buddhist art you are after, then
nbsp;why not take the much shorter trip from Beijing to Datong in Shanxi and
nbsp;see the Yungang Caves?They are spectacular (with a range of Buddhist
nbsp;art influences in the details, owing to the U. monument junkies.It's all still in the planning stage at this time, so if you have
any suggestions I sure would appreciate it.My mother has had hip replacement surgery; without any other
information about how you are planning this trip, I would tend to fall on
the side of skepticism.

nbsp;a hard climb or can it be done in stages?

There are a number of places where you can visit the Great Wall
On some of these (very crowdy) places you can even touch the wall without
climbing one single stair. Based on the conditions there, I cannot conceive of your friend
being able to climb the wall.

him/her that's the only way to do the climb in stages.

Thanks. I have some questions about the

About 30 steps down to the quay

Most people make the tour in and along the rock.

We visited the wall at Badaling, the place where the Wall is closest to
Beijing.

My best advice would be to have your friend rig some sort of stairs with
treads space two-three times normal height as both an experiment and
conditioning.Not having any myself, I can't say much
beyond that.

Thanks for any answers.

To see all the buddhas in Leshan do you have to do lots of walking up and
down?

We'll plan whether or not we visit Leshan based on the difficulty of
reaching the sites.Don't get me wrong, Sichuan is great, but you gave precious
few details of your plans and there's a lot of space between Beijing and
Leshan.Chengdu
is tentatively on the itinerary so Leshan looked like a nice side trip from
there.??While the
Buddha certainly is big, in terms of form, proportion, and detail it's
really not very distinguished.and it is an easy trip from

When you are there, pay a visit to the nearby Mahao tombs/grottoes and the
Wohou temple.

Many stairs, hundreds of steps.

When you want to walk on the wall, you need to be prepared to take ( 50 ?)
steps.

We're planning to go places in between, those were just two that came to
mind that might not be accessible for the person with the new hip.18bb7ce58491836b98972b@news.rice.
