Leshan is located at the confluence of Min River and Dadu River. Leshan Harbor is a major port along the Min River. Apart from the dry season in winter and spring, during the flood season, there are scheduled passenger liners every day heading for cities along the lower reaches of Min River such as Yibin, Luzhou and Chongqing . It consumes much time to take a boat down the river. However, owing to the graceful sceneries along the river, it is a marvelous way to take sightseeing trip.
