We visited in December, it was very cold and snowing our entire visit. It was an amazing experience even though the snow restricted the view from the top and of the golden summit. It was still worth the hike, when visiting in winter be sure...More
I went with my wife and 9 yr old son in May. As suggested by our hotel, we first took the bus and cable car all the way up to the Golden Summit and then came back via bus and got off at Wannian Temple...More
It was snowing when i was there. The view of the sea cloud and blue sky was splendid. Please prepare yourself with hiking shoes as some hiking of stairs needed. It was super slippery when it is snowing but afraid not as there are plenty...More
I was hiking Mount Emei beginning of November this year, all the way from the Baoguo temple to the summit. I would't say I'm very fit but just average but I did the whole thing (2500m in height and 25km in distance) in 10 hours...More
I went there for a school trip with 21 other people and I think we took the longest (but most scenic) route up. The whole climb took about 2 and a half days and I nearly died from exhaustion because I am not very fit....More

I hiked from the bottom of the mountain all the way up to Leidongping. The hike ended up being around 60km which was much longer than I saw advertised initially, but the hike's incredible scenery made up for it. On the way up I stayed...More
I traveled to Emeishan in Sep 2018. As a rain started in Chengdu, and there was nothing to lose or gain there, we took a train to another UNESCO World Heritage Site on our list - Emeishan, the highest (3,099 m) of four sacred Buddhist...More
We took the cable car up as it is a long way to the top. The views are spectacular - lucky for us that the clouds cleared. On a cloudy day that is all you will see. There are still many steps so wear comforatble...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.

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.

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.
