Loved this trip, loads of walking to get to some of the best scenic spots but totally worth it! Extremely cold during CNY when we visited, despite feeling I had prepared well, I was still bloody freezing and had to rent an extra thick jacket! TIP: you will want a walking stick (bamboo cane) and those little spikes that u... More

The Golden Summit of Mt Emei features 1400 AD Yuan Dynasty Buddhist temples at 3000m. The views are absolutely surreal and unmatched by any other similar complex we visited in Asia. Because it is at 3000m, it can get foggy especially in the morning. There is a Golden Summit Hotel at the summit if one wants to stay overnight to... More

We came a few days after Chinese New Year. This meant there were loads of people. We went to the bus station and purchased our tickets the night before for the first bus group out at 5am. (I don't think they normally sell them the night before but it was CNY). The next morning we work up early and we're... More

We did it the "lazy" way: we took the first cable cars at Wannian with the first shuttle bus from the bus station, and climbed up to Taiziping, the last cable car. We made it in 7h, with few stops for pictures and little rest in the monasteries. We are not athletes, but with a little training it is not... More

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
