A trip to Emei Shan, Sichuan province

At 3,100 meters (10,170 ft), Mount Emei is the highest of the four sacred Buddhist mountains in China. A UNESCO World Heritage Site.


In fact, there are over 70 monasteries here. At the top is Wan-Nian. Emei Shan National Park is 150 kilometers south of ChengDu and 28 kilometers from LeShan.


At least one whole day is required. Accommodation is available in some of the monasteries and some people like to view the sunrise from the peak. Tip: buy a mountain map and explore the interesting places off the main trail. Warm and rain-proof attire and good shoes/boots is recommended as the mountain is often bathed in cloud on the way up and the peak can be very cold.
