Gaze at a sea of clouds from a sacred Buddhist haven at Mount Emei (Emeishan), 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.

  • This was my favourite part of my holiday. Beautiful, interesting things to see (both natural and temples/shops/restaurants) and even some monkeys. The monkeys are wild and can steal food if it's out, ...  more »
  • Should not be a wimp before making the decision to climb the mount emei. Either we can climb up the mountain to see the Golden Summit with buses that go to Baoguo for 65yuans (1 h 30 bus), then take cable cars to 60 Yuan up to 3100 m. Then do the same things back down. Or do like us, it's to say a big trek of two days with one night in a monastery to 1900 m. Can that feel living once come up with our own legs pass however need a good physical condition to get there, we need to 60000 markets. In February it was snowing, the level was very very hard. The park entrance is at 185yuans for two days. Overnight in our monastery claimed us 40yuans, concerning food, you don't die of hunger at Mount, there are vendors everywhere, a bit more expensive hand of course. I would still recommend to the sacred mount, do not forget that it is a pilgrimage.
