Gaze at a sea of clouds from a sacred Buddhist haven at Emei Mountain, 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.

  • The road to reach the Golden Summit is another important part of experience to be had. Make sure you don't eat too much before hand. Bring your water and watch the slippery road during winter. Plus, monkeys also another thing to look out for on the way up.
