I prefer the Alps, but not because they are nicer, who would be crazy enough to compare the one with the other? Although, they even have the same cable cars from Doppelmayr in Austria! No, I prefer the Alps because cows brought down from their grazing grounds in the Alps are more civilised than 99.5% of the tourists hiking up... More

The masses of people steal any spirituality of the place. The steps and crowds make it more a climb into a building than a hike. Everyone here wants their share of the money from the tourists so expect to overpay for most of your needs and that's even before you leave the Emei city bus station. We had fun, the... More

It is a trek well worth taking. First you park in Emei city parking lot. Vendors will be selling rain ponchos and bamboo sticks for walking, buy both. You get on buses and travel 2 hours up the hill on a hairpin turn road. Once at the bus parking, look around the parking lot for wild monkeys (short tail), they... More

I wasn't sure what to expect and set off in rain and mist but once you had been climbing for an hour or so you broke through the mist to beautiful blue skies and sunshine. As per everything in China it is very commercialised but it was still worth a visit to see the monuments and the sea of cloud... More

The main attraction up this 3000m mountain must be the statue of the goddess of mercy and the temples up there. This must be the motivation of the hundreds if not thousands who climb the steps up there to pray for peace, prosperity and all of life's desires. The journey begins in the morning with the purchase of entry tickets... More

This 3000m high mountain is an amazing experience, but be prepared for what waits there. We took the bud half way up the mountain and prepared to walk to the top by sunset and watch the sun come up the next day. But the whole trip is a massive step-climb as there are build stairs everywhere, so after 6 hours... More
