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

Basically this is the temple at the foot of the mountain. We cover this temple upon arrival at Emeishan the day before we embark to the summit on the second day. It may be hot during summer. Be hydrated and take it easy.

Baoguo is at the edge of Emei town. It is about a 15-minute wak from the central bus station and about a 10-minute walk from the Hongshu Shan Hotel. It is among the older temples in Emei and has a large complex.

Background: Among the few dozen or so Buddhist temples and monasteries dotting Mt. Emei, the Baoguo temple sits at the base of the mountain. PROS: Location... location... location is one of its best assets. Because it sits at the foot of Mt. Emei, the temple is one of the closest from the town centre and therefore one of the most...

That was the first temple visited in Emei mountain, that was a nice temple accessible from the bottom, the fee was of 8 yuans we did some fantastic pictures, if you keep going on your left you can visit the monastery as well for an entrance fee of 6 yuans.

If you are going to Mount Emei, this is a nice temple to start with. It is a the foot of Mt. Emei and is just another temple among the many at this site. The temple is very similar to a lot of the Buddhist temples in China. There are large rocks, waterfalls, bamboos, ferns, in addition to the various... More

This was a very peaceful place. You could stay here too if you wanted, as it has hotel type facilities. It has a beautiful garden and stone figures scattered around the place. The architecture is something to see. I enjoyed comeing here and looking at the temple and its surrounds.
