It was recognized as the copper statue located at the highest altitude in Asia by Guinness World Records, the global authority on record-breaking achievements.

Built in 2015, the bronze statue is 21.5 meters tall and made from thousands of bronze pieces five millimeters thick. Its pedestal is decorated with a dragon and flowers.

The statue is located at an altitude of 3,075 meters above sea level on Mount Fansipan, dubbed the “Roof of Indochina.” Fansipan is nine kilometers southwest of the center of Sa Pa, a famous tourist destination.

In order to build the statue, all materials were carried by local porters to the top of the mountain via a narrow steep trail.

Sa Pa in Lao Cai Province, about 300 kilometers (186 miles) from Hanoi, has grown in popularity for its beautiful mountains, terraced rice fields and Saturday night “love market”, a colorful exhibition of local ethnic minority culture.

Vietnam is a predominantly Buddhist nation. It is estimated that over 70 percent of the population are either Buddhist or follow Buddhist practices.Related News:
