We were there in September and shared the basic accomodation with other 3 people as part of a tour. The room was clean and comfortable (with TV if you are interested), but you have to take into account that a lot depend on the people you are sharing with. We were lucky in that respect. The (shared) showers are open... More

There are so many places hard to access in Emeishan. Don't forget this one which is so easy to access. Beautiful, peaceful (at least off season), a place to let your heart rest for a while.

We had 3 nights in Emeishan, the first and last spent here. I should start by saying that the number listed is not in use. In my photos, I'm attaching the business card of Patrick, the lovely tour guide affiliated with the temple. Patrick was not in any way pushy, completely unlike the other entrepreneurs in the area. It was... More

We were part of G Tour who very cleverly get free bed space for their tours if there are no “Monks on Tour”. The working Buddhist monastery offers basic accommodation, complete with Cockroaches and the like. But the experience of being woken at 5.00am by the call to worship and the chance to view the comings and goings will stay... More

My girlfriend and I stayed three nights at this temple. The Monks are your personal alarm, as they start their chanting at 5:30AM each morning. The walls separating rooms are paper thin, so bring ear plugs if you encounter loud people like we did! Temple is a short walk to the center of town, which is filled with outdoor restaurants,...

Stayed here for two nights and what an experience. Peaceful and you can hear the monks chanting early in the morning. Very basic accommodation but clean. You have to walk quite a way to the showers but are hot but only in the evenings. It is an experience though to try.

We really didn't know where we were going just decided to take a walk theough the woods. We came upon the temple and although not much different than all of the other temples it was worth going through and relaxing after the long hike up. There is both a little tram amd a road that you can take. We decided... More

I stayed there for two nights. The rooms were basic with no air con but it is meant to be basic. The cockroaches were a nice touch! I particularly enjoyed the one that ran across my bed. The accommodation is in the middle of the woods so some wildlife is to be expected. The shower block was a trek -... More

Although basic accommodation it had nice surrounds. We did not speak to anyone at the temple and there were a lot of rooms for rent. The toilets are a bit of a walk in the wet and the showers were hot but a long way away. They were dark and damp and fairly communal. Similarly the food was cheap and... More

We actually stopped two nights in the monastery accommodation. This is a really unusual, but pretty place to stay. The rooms and facilities are very basic but the toilets and showers are kept spotlessly clean. The rooms are comfortable but expect an early morning wake up as the monks are up very early for their chanting although it's quite relaxing... More
