Emei mountain located in 3 hours from Chengdu. This mountain is one of the four saint buddists mountains in China. Emei mountain, where 33 monasteries are, is 3000 meters above sea level. On the top of the mountain there is marvelous buddists gold statue that can be seen very rarely because of the foggy weather. However, sometimes people are lucky... More

A bit busy but still pretty good. The walk up is quieter as Chinese people don't seem to see the point in walking up when there are easier ways.

EMeishan and Leshan are places I would not wish to visit again. I put it down to an experience. Our group of 4 went by train, taxi and van to both places. The impression I am left with is crowding in with lots of local tourists for a long climb up and a long climb down at both places. The... More

Mount Emei is not among the traditional 'Top 5 mountains', perhaps because it's not majestic enough compared to Mountains like Mount Taishan. But Chinese literature consider highly of Mount Emei, for it's graceful like a picture. Avoid the crowded, noisy, overly-commericialized spots. Mount Emei has much much more to offer if you have time to explore.

We visited Mt. Emei in June and the weather was quite nice, although a little misty. But the views were not obstructed by the fog. The hike took approximately 1 hour but it's absolutely worth the effort. The temple at the top of the mountain is huge & stunning. The altitude did not make us sick (unlike Tibet), because of...

It's hard to find information on Emeishan online, but here's what you absolutely need to know: 1. It is a very grueling hike. If you go all the way from Baoguo Temple at the base, you will need two full days, mostly uphill. 2. Semi-lazy way: you can take a bus/gondola halfway (Wannian Temple). From there it is 5 hours...

Although still an important center to China Buddhism, it is not as charming as some of its peers in the east coast. Expect to see more new temples and buildings that are less historic.

The mount is very nice, the landscape is unique, you can even see banana trees, but I have to tell that is freaking overpriced. The mount is divided in sections, for every sections you have to pay 50 or 60 yuan, you cannot climb the mount in just one day unless you do take loads of buses. Every bus costs... More

This is a great place to spend a day exploring. There is quite a nice guide map you can get in Leshan which shows you the hike routes and all the interesting places - temples, monasteries etc. you can visit which are dotted about on the mountain. We hiked about 20km on our trip, it's not extremely strenuous and you... More
