Terrifying but wouldn't miss it for the world.

So...every English post here said the monkeys were terrible, and they are... But they are monkeys! By the time you get to the "monkey zone" the crowd is so thick it's like... read more

The park is very beautiful and freaking overpiced but I do not understand one thing, outside the natural reserve, which is just a little part of emeishan, and has no boundaries there are loads of restaurants, then a signboards informs you are inside the monkey reserve(there are no restaurants inside the reserve). There if you have some food, monkeys will... More

By the time you get to the "monkey zone" the crowd is so thick it's like standing in line, garbage is strewn everywhere, naughty monkeys swat at children, attack adults who failed to hide plastic bottles, the line to the medical treatment booth was...

Hiked all the way to the monkey reserve just to see the monkeys. The hike was long (3 km there and 3 km back from Qingyin Pavilion), but totally worth it! The monkeys are super active in their natural habitat, climbing up and down the side of the bridge trying to look for food. Beware: They will steal your food... More

I thought those wild monkeys at Bali Uluwatu is scary enough, but these at Emei Shan are worst! They jumped on all three of us even as we tried to avoid eye contact with them and 1 of bigger monkey even tried show his teeth to my husband, our clothes were all stained with monkey's prints as it was raining...

The walk up the mountain was very tiring but due to the cold weather it was doable. I like the scenery above the clouds and though it really took a lot of climbing...I thoroughly enjoyed the moment at the golden summit. Such a beautiful place with bright sunshine and snow below. For those who want to make the trip ...... More

I have to recognize that I was really scarred in the moment when I entered the monkey zone. The guide who took us their had some monkey bites on his arm from a previous visit so he didn't enter with us. He prepared us that the monkeys are aggresive and we have to be careful. We even bought a bamboo... More

Mt. Emei Natural Ecology Monkey Reserve is definitely a fun place to be. There are really plenty of monkeys to see and they are really excited. Just be cautious cause the monkeys can be a little bit too excited and aggressive sometimes.

As touristy as it sounds, it is worth visiting the monkey area (it's name sounds a lot more grand than it actually is), which is literally a walkway where a number of monkeys are known to frequent. A peanut vendor sells packets of peanuts by the entrance to the ecological reserve but I wouldn't recommend feeding the monkeys. They have... More

It was not so clean and air was not so fresh. I came across several monkeys in the way. I was a bit surprised and scared.

The landscape in this area is very beautyful and the monkeys are funny and cool - BUT: if you love your life, don't go there without having an anti-rabies inoculation before! I did the mistake and one of the monkeys bite me in my leg. I didn't have anything to eat with me, just the map of the montain in... More
