Been there in August 2014. It was a beautifull experience I would highly recommend. Emei mountain means not necessarily "mountain" as we are used to it in Europe or America. There are no "off the beaten path" tracks, but well-designed paths with stairs, lots of people, lots of "street" vendors selling souvenirs, food and drinks. It is a unique "Chinese... More

First of all, if you want to go to Mount Emei then you should keep track of the weather. As the price for two days trip is very high so you do not want to waste it in foggy and rainy conditions. And when you go to top i suggest stay there for a night. because if the weather is... More

I had never planned to visit Emeishan. My plans had unfortunately changed due to road destruction and I joined my friend on his hiking. My fitness levels were not appropriate, hectolitres of water I drunk were not enough for the heat (middle of summer!) and after 20km (6h) of walking up the stairs (yes, it's mostly walking up the stairs...

I have visited Emeishan twice and second time was the best one. For the first time it was very foggy and we could barely see the Golden summit itself, but second time was indescribable! The sky was clear with no clouds and snow everywhere. When we climbed to the top, the most amazing view appeared in front of my eyes... More

Just a little update if anyone wants to travel from Chengdu to Emeishan by train. There is now a high speed train available departing from Chengdu east train station to Emeishan. From there you can take a public bus no 5 right next to the train station to Baoguo Temple which is at the foot of the mountain range. If... More

It's not a mountain, it's a range of mountains. This statement is important for your entire trip planning. It is bigger than a city, it has at least 3 small township that I've passed through on my way to the top. You got information from the internet about day trip or 2 days trip to Emei and I can tell...

Made a 2 day ascent leading up to new year's eve. Wintry views, physical test, and spiritual surroundings well-worth the challenge! Even if I got mugged by those annoying monkeys! The walk is all stairs surrounded by vegetation, and later snow past the ~800m elevation. It gets very steep and a great leg workout for 7-8 hours per day. I... More

I chose to hike up in mid Dec. it was cold after the lower levels. Stairs after stairs. Not much views to speak of. I started from Wuxiangang and reached Ledongpin after dark. We had lunch and dinner stops, and took our time. Cold... Travel light, and even in the cold you are going to be warm in no time... More

this place is great. the view if you are lucky is awesome. it just has a spirtual feel at the top. it can be crowded depending on the day but well worth it.
