drive couple of hours, then walk a few kilometers and then take a vertical cable car. Suddenly you break the cloud cover and reach the top. walking a few hundred meters will suddenly bring you to a grand spectacle of the golden Budha statue.

Emeishan is one of the Four Sacred Buddhist Mountains of China and sits at the western rim of the Sichuan Basin. This holy mountain is also an United Nations Unesco World Heritage Site. This supposed to be the origin spot of the Shaolin Monastery and the martial arts it spawned. This was our 3rd visit to Emeishan, this time with... More

Very dissapointed with this place. Not only it's expensive (RMB90 for return bus, RMB185 for "entrance", RMB120 for return cable car), there is no explanation along the way like Jiuzhaigou. There isn't any map too. Can skip this place if you're not a pilgrim.

Be prepared to walk the steps. Especially from the place where the bus stops, the walking distance to the cable car is about 2km and it's all steps, up and down. Worst it's at 3000m+ above sea level, it can be very strenuous for a lot of people. But if u don't mind, the local people provide services of carrying... More

We walked all the way up from Baoguo temple to the pre-summit. As it is very touristy and all the paths are paved, don't underestimate what you're doing. You ascend from 500m to 3000 in day which is hard work, it is about 30 km so be sure to be in good physical condition. The walk is very rewarding since... More

I have to say that we did not spend enough time here to fully appreciate the place. Just the fact of visiting this legendary mountain/temples that we have heard so much about as youngsters made this a special trip. We really did not do much hiking, but paid for the electric golf cart ride instead. Much easier for these old... More

So many stairs but take your time and use the gondolas were you can. Stunning view at the top above the clouds.

We got into town around noon and decided to spend afternoon of day 1 going up the mountain on the half mountain bus to visit Wannian temple. The cost of the bus was around 40-45 yuan per round trip ticket. It is a 3km hike up the stairs from the parking lot to the temple. You can buy your 2... More
