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.

  • As usual in China, the entrance to the Park costs nearly 30 euros for 2 days. Since buses and cable cars are very expensive, it is also for a day to enter locker again 150-€200 kos.
