Emei Mountain, Emeishan

4.0
Gaze at a sea of clouds from a sacred Buddhist haven at Emei Mountain, a World Heritage Site and home to over 200 endemic species. One of the most divine mountains in Buddhism, this 3,099 m (10,167 ft) peak features a giant gilded Samantabhadra statue supported by four elephants. Thousand-year-old trees, scenic waterfalls, and a number of observation points with spectacular scenery make this area a popular hiking spot for both pilgrims and tourists. As part of a national park, the mountain features a number of remarkable temples (home to many ancient martial arts styles), two of which are accessible by cable cars.

    Are you ready to motion sickness because the continuous sharp rises in entrance of the Emei mountain by bus, but people who take the pills. From the bus, aerial tramway, 600 stairs down to the gondola station also of 100 or so stairs, arrives at the Summit. Weather permitting, there is little, but good weather, friendly and helpful. Views of the clouds from the Summit of Golden tetrahedron all volcano gold statue is beautiful, but is the best.

Where to stay in Emeishan

If you choose to stay in the main city during your visit to Emeishan, you'll find a welcome mix of luxury and standard offerings when it comes to accommodations. The more refined options nestle up to the river in the north of town, with luxury hotels offering pools, spas, and finely decorated rooms. Look to the south along the main roads for simpler hotels and guesthouses. Up in the mountains, the monasteries offer particularly atmospheric places to stay, with basic rooms providing memorable views, while some pricey hotels sit close to the main attractions.
