Caught the bullet train to the Emeishan. Stayed overnight in a hotel near the park entrance. Had a fun but expensive time on the mountain. I could only afford it because I walked to the summit and did not take my family. Walked over 15,000 steps and 30 km to the summit. We took the longer route on the left... More

At first i thought one of the Four Great Buddhist mountains will live up to its reputation but it turns out to be complete Opposite. It cost 185 RMB for the entrance fee and it will cost another 200 RMB for the transport to the Top. Obviously the Ticket price does not justify what it offers but what really disappoint... More

It is quite taxing to ascend , other than the comfort and convenience with the cable cars.The golden temple and the iconic statue are worthwhile views at the peak.Although they have no religious value to non believers. We are more fascinated with the clouds below us at the cliffside behind the Golden Temple. The above the clouds feeling. ..Really feel... More

We took a short trip From Chengdu Xin Nan Men bus station (新南门汽车站)cost 42RMB make sure to say Emei mountain scenic area (峨眉山景区-报国寺站), because they have two routes, one is to Emei city the other is to Emei mountain. (Trip around 2 and half hours) From the bus station you can directly buy the ticket up to the mountain ,... More

Travelled with a group of friends to climb the mountain from bottom to top which took two days. It was very challenging, the climb mainly consists of stairs and your legs get an extremely good workout! Be warned also, the stalls that sell water and snacks on the mountain are very expensive, you can pay up to 15 CNY for... More

It was an experience to walk up to the Golden Summit and I would highly recommend it. The walk up uses well-designed paths with gradual stairs. We took the cable car up and then walked for a little over 1 km to the Golden Summit Temple. It is not a difficult walk. When we were there the area had snow... More

Definetly the highpoint of my trip to sichuan. Emeishan is a place of tranquility and peace. Surround yourself in an untouched wilderness with no other sound but your footsteps and the forest. Discover hidden temples in the mists after battling endless paths of steep stairs!

This tourist spot can be accessed by land or sea. It is easier to view it by sea although a closer look will be best by land. The amazing thing is that the biggest statue of Buddha is carved from the rocks and is easily visible by the sea. One can also view the sight of 3 islands that forms... More

Travelled on a group tour to this scenic place. From the foot of the mountain, purchased tickets and took the internal shuttle service. Many peddlers selling bambo stick to help with the trekking up the mountain @ ¥2 each. After 1 hour plus of bus ride, we reach a terminal station whereby we got to trek up flights of stairs... More
