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

There is a fair chance that if you go to this site to see the Buddha at the summit of Mt. Emei that it will be fogged out. The summit is reached by a series of busses, cable cars and walks that mean that you need to be prepared. There are places to get food on the way, but be... More

Old world monkeys terrify me. I came for the mountain and thought, hey, I'm sure it's a healthy respect, and seeing macaques hanging out will be interesting. No, actually, it is unbridled fear. So we saw the macaques a few places. In the temples closer to Emeishan's base, they're smallish, and there are frequently handlers. Sometimes the handlers turn you... More

Depending on the degree of visibility you have on your visit, fresh mountain air and clear views are definite bonuses. If you are lucky, you can savour your leisurely paced climb without having to jostle with the rest of China. That said, the Mt Emei Natural Ecology Monkey Reserve is a boundaryless zone where the Tibetan macaques happen to grace.... More

Background: As part of a 3-week circle tour of China, our tour guide arranged for a day hike up Mt. Emei and visited the Natural Ecology Monkey Reserve. PROS: Proximity to our accommodation (Baoguo Temple) is an asset. Since it isn't located at the very summit of Mt. Emei, it doesn't take long to reach it by hiking. From Baoguo... More
