It snowed and rained the week before, so the ground was slippery and muddy. It is advisable to purchase the bamboo stick from the peddlars (2 rmb) so that it is easier to climb the steps. The journey took to reach the peak is long, we took the bus, then walked, took cable car (standing, carry 100 people), walked. But... More

A fantastic hiking trip. At least above average physical fitness level is advisable because it's mostly stairs all the way up to the summit. Start hiking from Wu Xian Gang, it takes about 7 hours (average fitness level) to get to Lei Dongping where you can rest for the night. Wake early the next morning and start about 5am to... More

After reading many negative reviews, we were not sure whether going to Mount Emei was the right decision but it turned out to be fantastic! We arrived by early morning bus from Chengdu and took a personal driver from the bus station (can be cheaper than the bus if you are 4) - who took us to the Wuxian-Gang parking... More

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

I visited here last year in late winter. I arrived in the Teddy Bear Hostel in Emei Village late at night and set off early in the morning for the mountain area. The experience of climbing it wasn't quite like anything I'd ever done. At the bottom, it was a lush semitropical forest filled with bamboo and I felt rather... 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
