We made the way up with a bus and cable car and it was easy. The temple is a very nice one. To climb it by foot is very difficult and not recommended. If you want to see the view which is very beautiful you can see it on the way down.

Emeishan is a long climb, but I thought there must be something to see on the way. Well, there isn't really. Only at the top. And then it's clouded or misty most of the time, so you cannot see clear beyond a few meters. I spent 2 hours on the top waiting for a few seconds of relatively clear skies... More

As a Chinese or religious visitor, Emeishan is one of the most revered and must-visit places in China. It is home to some of the most famous temples and Buddhist sites. As a non-religious visitor, the mountain is just a regular mountain with some nice hiking trails, but otherwise quite unspectacular (and expensive and crowded with throngs of domestic tour... More

We spent the night there and woke up at 4 am, climbed additional 500 m to the... More

On your way to the Golden Pinnacle Temple you have to climb on Emei Shan. that is a very unusual experience. There are many people coming from all over China. Please consider to start very early (we started at 07:15 AM) and still had to stand on the line to the cable car upward (on the way back it was... More

Avoid visiting on the weekend and public holidays. You will not see anything but only thousands of people, no famous monkeys, no beauty of mountains. As we left in the afternoon we decided to make only half mountain trip (which had nothing spectacular at all) and the next day to go to Golden Buddha. After experiencing the crowdedness, chaos with... More

So said our tour guide and perhaps it was true. it was drizzling when we arrived and throughout our day trip. some parts were a steep climb (though they had stairs) but overall it was pretty fun. there are "tea huts" dotted around the mountain on the way up as well. we were quite lucky that there weren't that many...

We started our trip to Mt.Emei very soon in morning to avoid expected crowds of tourists queuing for cable car tickets. Due to time constrains we had to take a cable car up also down. View from top of Mt.Emei was amazing ! Weather was luckily very nice, clear sky so we could see always snowy mountains on the west... More

It was the first time in my life i witness the clear blue skies with snowy mountains. I was like a movie scenery where everything was perfect from weather to food. Climbing up the steps with snow and ice is very challenging, but I would say that it's an experience. Don't worry of buying a proper shoes because alot of... More
