First of all, the park ticket is in the strip before you get to the main gate and parking area. The location was not intuitive or obvious. You can also buy a bus ticket there which varies depending on how far up the mountain you're going. We rode the bus up to Wannian, took the tram, and started walking up.... More

This is one place I can recommend everyone to skip it. Its not an easy climb. My younger son actually had some high altitude breathing difficulty towards the top and had to visit the first aid centre. The first aid centre was really small and dirty. Through out the whole climb, you hear the Chinese shouting at the top of... More

We took the bus from the foot of EMeishan to Leidong Ping. The roads are pretty winding so those who has got motion sickness should take their motion sickness pill before getting on the bus. The ride is about 1.5 hours. And from there, it's a 45 mins climb up to the cable car station. I would advise getting the... More

Fabulous views, very truly a holistic Buddha experience, take your own worm clothes although you can hire coats etc. The cable car ride is great .

The scenery on Mt Emei is beautiful. A great place to take photos. From the main carpark half way up the mountain its concrete steps up. The fixed shop sellers on this mountain are not allowed to determine prices on a customer by customer basis (no price gouging the foreigner). If they do you are allowed to complain to management....

The monastries of Mount Emei are impressive. The combination of lush forest and monastries creates an atmosphere that makes you want to stay. The monastries are distributed over the whole mountain and you need (at least) a day to get to know the most important (and impressive) ones. (Good hiking boots are strongly recommended.) A system of buses and cable... More

Awesome, painful and fun. I started from Teddy bear hotel at around 6am, and walked all the way up to the top around 2:30pm (couldnt pay for ticket either since i got to both of the ticket checking place before they start their day). It was very serene and tranquil until you get to where the bus station is near... More

This moutain is pretty fun to hike around! We went in the winter time and the upper part of the mountain was open to the public and hikers. We couldn't start from the bottom as at a certain point on the mountain, and because we decided to travel there in february, the snow on the path gets pretty deep /... More
