Use the cable car towards the temple/monastery and go down by nice and easy path . The cable car is not reaching the temple. There are almost 200 steps left to the temple level but since the area is in nice forest the climbing is easier and with several stops as you wish. The temple itself has no unique speciality...

We took the bus from Emei bus terminal – about a 30 minute ride to the mountain bus stop. We then boarded a cable car – about 15-20 minutes to get to the top. Then we hiked up concrete walkways and stairs up to the temple. This is a very nice large temple grounds. From Waniian temple, we took the... More

Wannian temple is at the middle section of ermeishan which is at about 2000 meter altitude. Over here it is not as cooling as jingding and it is more crowded as many tourists who do not want to climb to jingding will be here. You can take the bus to the cable station from the bottom of ermeishan and then... More

We spent fifty minutes walking from the bus station to Wannian Temple. The atmosphere along the way is serene and quite. The architecture of the Temple is amazing and old. There is a statue of golden Buddha on a white marble elephant there. Many people pray in the temple.

This is a common problem when visiting famous attractions. The place, the environment, the buildings are all very worth visiting. Not much to talk about it here, you should experience it yourself. The down side will be the contrast between ancient cultures and modern tourist. Wannianshi = Baishuishi

Interesting old temple. We enjoy the visit despite the too many tourists. It is an old well preserved templ, the budha and elephants are nice. We get there by cable car, and walk all the way down to parking lot, passing the pavilion and the lake. Strongly recommended.

Midway to the peak of Mount Emei is the Wannian Temple and Monastery. It can be reached after a bus ride, a cable car ride, and a walk up a concrete stairway. Some of the structures inside the temple present a different architecture. But the grounds in the temple are well kept and maintained. Inside the main temple, there is... More

The walk to the temple is fairly easy, about an hour and not too much uphill climbing. Nice views along the way. The structure of the temple is different from that of most I have seen.
