It really is a long way up to get there, but it is worth it. If you think you cannot walk that far up, there are other alternatives that can take you up there.

This temple is worth a visit if you are going to the mountains of Emei. We arrived by cable car and walked to Wuxianggang where we took the bus. The surroundings are beautiful, even thouh in rain. It is possible to stay overnight in the guesthouse, and the newest ones have spacious rooms with nice view to the green forest... More

Very nice buddhist temple in Mount Emei. There's an entrance fee of 10yuan. Recommended to stop for a visit when you walk in Mount Emei

Another good temple but do not expect to spend too long there. May be about 2 hours or less unless you plan to pray in there.

The area is very serene, quiet and impressive. There is a beautiful statue of a golden Buddha on a white elephant. People kneel down to pray and give offerings to Buddha. Monks were seen studying and writing.

Wannian Temple is one of the 33 monasteries situated on the Emei mountain. To get there, you need to do your best and climb very long stairs. After such a challange, you will find yourself in full quite and tranquility of the monastery.

Use the cable car towards the temple/monastery and go down by nice and easy path . The cable car is not reaching the temple. There are almost 200 steps left to the temple level but since the area is in nice forest the climbing is easier and with several stops as you wish. The temple itself has no unique speciality...

We took the bus from Emei bus terminal – about a 30 minute ride to the mountain bus stop. We then boarded a cable car – about 15-20 minutes to get to the top. Then we hiked up concrete walkways and stairs up to the temple. This is a very nice large temple grounds. From Waniian temple, we took the... More

Wannian temple is at the middle section of ermeishan which is at about 2000 meter altitude. Over here it is not as cooling as jingding and it is more crowded as many tourists who do not want to climb to jingding will be here. You can take the bus to the cable station from the bottom of ermeishan and then... More

We spent fifty minutes walking from the bus station to Wannian Temple. The atmosphere along the way is serene and quite. The architecture of the Temple is amazing and old. There is a statue of golden Buddha on a white marble elephant there. Many people pray in the temple.
