We took the train from Chengdu to EMeiShan. Then hired a car for 220 yuans (round trip) to take us to the scenic site entrance. There are shuttle buses at the train station at 90 yuan full price & 40 yuan half price. It depends on how far you want to go in the mountain. Anyway, we paid for the... More

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, but they didn't bother us. However, my legs were quite sore after what felt like thousands of stairs. There are lots of places to rest, but it was... More

Loved this trip, loads of walking to get to some of the best scenic spots but totally worth it! Extremely cold during CNY when we visited, despite feeling I had prepared well, I was still bloody freezing and had to rent an extra thick jacket! TIP: you will want a walking stick (bamboo cane) and those little spikes that u... More

The Golden Summit of Mt Emei features 1400 AD Yuan Dynasty Buddhist temples at 3000m. The views are absolutely surreal and unmatched by any other similar complex we visited in Asia. Because it is at 3000m, it can get foggy especially in the morning. There is a Golden Summit Hotel at the summit if one wants to stay overnight to... More

We came a few days after Chinese New Year. This meant there were loads of people. We went to the bus station and purchased our tickets the night before for the first bus group out at 5am.

We did it the "lazy" way: we took the first cable cars at Wannian with the first shuttle bus from the bus station, and climbed up to Taiziping, the last cable car. We made it in 7h, with few stops for pictures and little rest in the monasteries. We are not athletes, but with a little training it is not... More

Daoist built temples in 2nd century AD then Buddhism gained from 6th century. There are so many beautiful scenery around when you walk up to the top but during raining day may be not so comfortable to climb up. Around Jinding Temple you may encounter a lot of crazy monkeys.
