One of four very famous mountains for tourists. Better to pay for a tour guide. Well managements around this attraction. Very connivance between Chengdu and this town.

Not sure but it can be very dangerous. We went during summer and steep curves and dont think its very safe to go in winter time.

Hi Demi, Sorry I have no idea about the plank with a harness. I didn't see it when we were there but the weather on the day we went was dreadful and so we didn't hang around long. Enjoy your trip

In other words, then or never. I want to use the time to the fullest. Btw. I'm going to travel with all my belongings(that is, one big...More

Good luck in finding tickets for trains and buses in the first half of your trip. You will need a ton of luck. Also understand that many places will be closed on Chinese new year. Also understand that it will reasonable cold in Yunnan at that time and these hostels and guesthouses have no heating. Be prepared to suffer a bit. Otherwise your plan looks fine.

Hello I could use some advice on my trip to China in 3 weeks. I'm flying into (and out of) Shanghai, exploring it for 4 days. after that I have 12 days and want to go to Suzhou, hike Huangshan, Chengdu visit Leshan and then hike Mount Emei. I really hope to do all those things if I can. I would like to add Yangshuo if I can squeeze it in. I dont mind flying between locations to save time. Can you easily fly between these places? is there a logical order I should hit these spots...More

Mount Emei and Leshan (0 Replies)
I am going to Chengdu for 1 week starting 27th December 2009. Plan to go Mount Emei and Leshan for 1 day at the end of the trip. Is that possible? Any advice whether to take a car or bus to this area. Just wana ask will there be any problem if we are travelling during Public Holiday since like 1st January. I am afraid that most of the tourist spot is close.
