Mount Emei (Emeishan), Emeishan

(3.9/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web)
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. 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. Use our Emeishan vacation trip planner to arrange your visit to Mount Emei (Emeishan) and other attractions in Emeishan.
