Emeishan is a wonderful place to visit, so glad that I decided to go there. Spend two days there, sleep one night at one of the many guest houses/temples and get up early for the beautiful sunrise, that's a stunning view if you are lucky enough to be there when it's not to foggy. Be careful of the many monkeys... More

The mountain itself is a good mixture of waters and rocks. A lot of people go to see the golden tops and the sunrise. You definitely have to stay on the mountain top (very expensive comparatively) to be able to see the sunrise. Don't listen to the local hotel owners to stay in the middle cuz the top part won't...

E Mei Shan is one of China's scenic mountain range. The way up is through a series of steps. Get a bamboo stick (1-2yuan), it is very helpful making the climb easier. Do not hold any plastic bags as the monkeys will snatch it away from u. There is a choice to continue climbing or take the cable car at... More

We visited this place with excitement hoping to see beautiful scenery and famous fat monkeys. But due to the foggy weather, we didn't see monkeys nor the whole scenery. But we did climb the 1.2 km stairway to the top and see the temple and Buddha. Of course, there are many good temples to visit in this large mountain. There... More

Very expensive and weather sensitive! Expensive: I probably spent $US80, hiking up this mountain in access, bus and cable-car fees. Weather sensitive: Make sure to check the weather before you go. I thought the cloud layer would be below the summit, I was wrong. At the lower altitudes I was in the pollution layer, then above I was in the... More

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
