If you are planning on visiting Mount Emei make sure to check the weather beforehand. We spent a night here on the mountain and hiked the last 3 hours at 3am to catch the sunrise. However a big rain storm had moved in leaving visibility at zero. The hike itself involved mainly steps up and requires a good level of... More

We hiked up the mountain from the halfway point, which was very difficult because there were so many stairs. However, it's a quiet, peaceful hike. We stayed at a temple on the way up, and it was very pleasant. The shower was hot, the beds weren't terribly hard (still very hard), the price was reasonable, and the food was good.... More

Disappointed as the Buddha statue was covered up for maintenance. We were not told by anyone and didn't see any notice on websites or counters selling entrance tickets and transport up. But overall it's still a nice place to visit for the scenic views. It was a warm.day and we could take many clear photos. We didnt choose hiking route... More

Fantastic scenery, and incredible views. It is really tiring so be prepared for a long way up, but it is worth it! Differently than I thought it was really easy to find and see the monkeys.

The best way to experience it would be to climb/hike the mountain right from the entrance gate. Those tight with time can ascend the top via the cable car one day and hike the lower slopes the next. Should be possible to do Emeishan on a day trip from Leshan. I did it as a part of a two day... More

As of June 2016, the Golden Buddha Statue at Emeishan is closed. While I understand that historical relics need to be restored from time to time, what I hated was the total lack of information until we got to the very top. If you stayed at the foot of Emeishan, you need to take a chartered bus from the bus... More

The Mount Emei is very beautiful and great for walks of one or more days. But it is also very popular with local tourists and can be a bit frustrating to be with so many people

We stayed overnight in Emei Shan so that we could visit the mountain twice. On the first day we attempted to hike a 4 hour loop from Baoguo but discovered that the entrance fee per day was 185 yuan which we couldn't justify for 2 people for 2 days. On the first day we decided to see the temples that... More
