Amazing at the end but a very hard way to get there!

We visited Mt Emei on Sept 21st - it was foggy but dry when we started with rain forecast later. We refuse to believe the hype that you need to get to places early to avoid crowds... read more

We visited Mt Emei on Sept 21st - it was foggy but dry when we started with rain forecast later. We refuse to believe the hype that you need to get to places early to avoid crowds - this approach hasn't worked for us in China so far! So we started a bit later and got the bus from Baoguo... More

We decided to do a two day (really short!) trip from Chengdu to see the Leshan Giant Buddha September 10, 2016, and to visit Emeishan (Mount Emei). We booked through a private tour company, and drove (~2.5hrs) but I learned a bunch of things later, such as: - there is a high speed train (1hr6mins trip) from Chengdu to Emeishan,... More

This place is magical. Yes, it is also expensive and can be crowded at times but as long as you know what to expect in advance that should not stop you from going. It is all very well indicated and you don't need to plan too much. Book an hotel at the bottom (I would recommend the Teddy Bear House)... More

My boyfriend and I visited Emei Shan on whistle stop trip and sadly had to pack it into one day, despite this it still remained one of the highlights of my recent trip to Sichuan so is completely worthwhile doing even if you are short of time! The night before we began our journey to Mount Emei we stayed in... More

I made my decision to hike UP the mountain, and ended up making the journey down as well. I took the route from Baoguo Temple to go up (the long way) and the shorter route down via Wannian Temple. I did not take the bus or the cable car. If you take either I imagine it'll ruin this mountain for... More

i took the bus from baguo town to the mountain, it was a 3 hours bus. once we got there we walk 3 hours to the top of the mountain and then went down by cable car. The view is ashtoning, one of the most beautiful places. if you want to hike the mountain you need two day. I Recommend... More

My trip to Emeishan was a huge disappoitment, which started in Chengdu. I took a bus from Xinnanmen bus station, the lady selling tickets told me that it will be around 2 hours trip, it was 4, which ruined my trekking plans, cause I didn't have enough time to go the path I chose at first. So don't trust people... More

It was raining a lot when I visited Emeishan so my experience was negatively affected by that. Do not forget to bring a good quality poncho (don't buy a crappy one there) and waterproof shoes or shoes that can take on heavy rainfall. The most upsetting part, however, was not the weather. It was the endless crowds of people --... More

A friend and I visited Emei Shan (Mt. Emei) after visiting the impressive giant buddha at Le Shan. This is one of the 4 holy Buddhist mountains in China and much to my surprise, it was a very serene and pleasant experience. We loved the rustic monasteries we stayed at, the incredible views, the friendly people and monks we encountered... More
