Mt. Emei Natural Ecology Monkey Reserve serves as China's biggest reserve for wild monkeys. Home to about 1,000 Tibetan macaques, this sanctuary allows visitors to observe wildlife in a natural habitat.

Keep your possessions near your body and observe the animals without trying to feed them. Plan a Emeishan trip in moments using our itinerary builder.
