We took the bus down to Emeishan from the Xinnanmen Bus station in Chengdu. It cost 82 RMB for the 3 hour trip. As the bus was coming into Emeishan a woman got on and started collecting 10 RMB more from everyone that was going to the mountain. She worked for one of the Hotels on the mountain and the... More

We took the cable car to Wanian temple then walked to the top (6 hours). It was mid April so not too busy. Weather was better at low altitude, cloudy at the summit. Stayed in Hongzhu shan hotel which was a lovely hot spring spa for those aching legs at the end of the day. Only disappointment was we didn't... More

Here was our itinerary - we arrived at Mount Emei at around 4pm and checked into our hotel at the foot of the hill, within walking distance to Baoguo Temple. The next day was spent getting to the summit. We... More

It was winter when I visited there, road was slippery and I almost slipped for a few times. Monkeys were up closed on the way to the top of the mountain. Breathtaking scenery at the top,rare to see blue sky in Chengdu. However, everything requires entrance tickets. The only cons of this beautiful place

All the fees to travel by bus are about 5 times more on sight than off. The cost to reach the summit by bus was 90 rmb one way plus the entrance fee of 180 rmb. We didnt pay to visit the summit because it was too much to pay 580 rmb entrance plus another 580 for return transport and... More

Went to emeishan on a day tour together with leshan. Arrived in the afternoon and took a cable car with the tour guide. Suggest you walk up instead as it only take 30 to 45 mins to walk up. The half day sightseeing really only offer us time to see the wanlian temple and mountains of monkeys. Was glad we... More
