The mount is very nice, the landscape is unique, you can even see banana trees, but I have to tell that is freaking overpriced. The mount is divided in sections, for every sections you have to pay 50 or 60 yuan, you cannot climb the mount in just one day unless you do take loads of buses. Every bus costs... More

This is a great place to spend a day exploring. There is quite a nice guide map you can get in Leshan which shows you the hike routes and all the interesting places - temples, monasteries etc. you can visit which are dotted about on the mountain. We hiked about 20km on our trip, it's not extremely strenuous and you... More

My husband and I opted to take the long route in hopes of avoiding crowds. We went on a Wednesday in July (can't imagine a better time to go) but it was still VERY crowded. We hiked from Baoguo to Quinying then up to Xianfeng temple to sleep. Left at 830am and got to Xianfeng around 6. We didn't stop... More

Definitely one of the greatest temple to visit while at China. Easy to get to the foot of the mountain after visiting Leshan Giant Buddha. Try to get up to Emeishan early to avoid having jammed with the local Chinese group to take the cable. We spent a good 7 hours up at the mountain. Please be geared with your... More

We visited this unique tourist spot hidden in high mountains! Very nicely connected by road and rail to Chengdu, memorable scenic beauty, great location for trekking and collecting local momentos.

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
