Historic Sites Fun & Games Wildlife Areas
A city forever linked with the mountain of the same name, Emeishan sits next to one of the four sacred Buddhist mountains of China, now a World Heritage Site. Hikes across the scenic mountain represent one of the main things to do in Emeishan, with a set of ancient Buddhist temples to find, positioned high up the mountain overlooking striking scenery. The home of the first Buddhist temple built in China, the mountain represents a coming together of the natural and spiritual realms: a relationship that would define much of Chinese culture over the coming centuries. Take a look at our China itinerary builder to refine the details of your trip to Emeishan.

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.
