China New Network client Leshan February 9 (Reporter Liu Zhongjun) Sichuan Leshan Giant Buddha Scenic Area Management Committee responded to the video circulating on the Internet on February 9th, saying that the rock wall in the video is located at the entrance of the North Gate of the Leshan Giant Buddha Scenic Area. The holes in the rock wall are naturally formed and are not caused by tourists.
The reporter saw in a video circulating on the Internet that a rock wall was covered with dense holes. A guide in the video introduced to the tourists that the mountain here is the Danxia landform, and the soil is loose. These holes are all poked out by tourists. There are also many tourists in the video who use their fingers to poke into the small hole to rotate, and the tourists scream at the side: "transport, transshipment."

For the online video, Zhongxin.com reporter contacted the Leshan Giant Buddha Scenic Area Management Committee. The relevant staff said that they have seen the video sent online. The staff said that the rock wall is located at the entrance of the north gate of the Great Buddha Scenic Area. It is a naturally formed hole, which is not man-made. There are nearly a hundred rocks in the whole mountain. Therefore, it is located in the main passage of tourists, the shape is strange, coupled with the misleading of the tour guide, so that tourists are touched by curiosity or praying. In addition, the scenic mountain is red sandstone, the rock mass is loose and the rock mass has been exposed to wind and rain for a long time. “Every past visitor touched the hand, the moss on the rock wall slowly fell, and finally revealed red sandstone and clear holes.” The staff also said that the rock wall full of holes can be seen everywhere in the big Buddha scenic area. There are about a hundred.
The Leshan Giant Buddha Scenic Area Management Committee also stated that the tour guide in the video was not a professional tour guide in the Big Buddha Scenic Area. Although the sanitation workers were scenic spots, they did not understand the source and condition of these holes.
The reporter noticed that after the video was circulated, many netizens expressed their opinions. The net name "Aling0307": "Feeling the guide in the video is misleading the tourists, can not be destroyed, to make it clear." The net name "Tianlu Guliang 666": "The guide card can be revoked."

Relevant staff of the Leshan Giant Buddha Scenic Area Management Committee said that because the rock wall is not a cultural relic, there is no relevant laws and regulations prohibiting touch, and whether the touch of tourists will lead to accelerated weathering of the rock wall and no scientific argument, so management is difficult. In addition, a large number of tour guides bring a group to enter the scenic spot every year. At present, there is no relevant regulation in China that prohibits tour guides from entering the scenic spot. Therefore, the management of tour guides is difficult and can only rely on self-discipline. In response to this phenomenon, the Leshan Giant Buddha Scenic Area Management Committee said that the next step will be to contact the local tourism authorities of Leshan to strengthen the management of the scenic tour guides and strengthen publicity and guide tourists.
