Daoist built temples in 2nd century AD then Buddhism gained from 6th century. There are so many beautiful scenery around when you walk up to the top but during raining day may be not so comfortable to climb up. Around Jinding Temple you may encounter a lot of crazy monkeys.

Is a must visit! We were very lucky we saw the clouds below us when we reached the peak and the Buddha was shining brightly! Really amazing! Must go. Needs abit of trekking so do take your time, don't rush.

It was a long climb up to the peak, but worth it. Despite the reports of snow and thick mist, we were lucky to have had a clear view of the golden statue of Pu Xian and the surrounding temples. One might want to rent crampons especially with the ice and snow, I slipped twice while descending because the snow... More

Emeishan would have been a betterplace if it wasn't foggy! Up at the summit, there's nothing much to see as it was foggy & bad weather...slightly drizzling & there's some light snow falling. We took the bus up to mid station (2 hrs drive). After our lunch at mid bus station terminal, we started to climb up to the cable... More

We have just got back from a great day on Emei mountain! We are staying in the village at the bottom, which means that we could spend longer on the mountain than those doing a day trip. We arrived at the entrance at 8:30am and bought an adult ticket (90RMB), a student ticket (50RMB) and two return bus tickets (90RMB... More

We visited here yesterday and we absolutely loved it! We came on a bus from Chengdu which took just over an hour and then got a shuttle bus halfway up the mountain - the bus took around an hour and half each way and I really enjoyed it as there was so much to see and it was cool to... More

You can't leave Sichuan without visiting this amazing mountain. I visited this mountain on 21st Dec 2016 and it was a day trip. I took the 7:36am high speed train (CNY 65, second class) from Chengdu Dong Station (成都东)to Emeishan (峨眉山). It took about 1 hour and 16 minutes to reach the destination. Upon arrival, I bought a round trip... More

This was sort of a last minute decision, and somehow I thought we could wing it. We merely wanted to get to the top of the mountain, skipping all the temple stops along the way - pretty straightforward I thought. Well it was of course more difficult than expected - this being a 3000m high mountain, it WAS winter (on... More

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.
