Emei Shan in Sichuan Province in Southwest China has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site due to its incredible natural beauty and historical Buddhist sites. The mountain is characterized by lofty ancient trees, spectacular waterfalls, pristine brooks and numerous Buddhist temples. It is also blessed with a temperate climate, making it a very popular summer destination. A full day's hike to the summit is a truly unforgettable experience but for those less active there are mini buses and cable cars.
Emei Shan is a sacred Buddhist haven and one of the four most divine Buddhist Mountains in China. There are 30 Buddhist temples on the mountain and every morning streams of Buddhist pilgrims armed with joss sticks conquer the steep stairs of the mountain and swarm into the temples which include; Baoguo at the foot of the Mountain, Wanian temple (one of the largest on the mountain) and Qingyin Pavilion.
At the Gold Summit which is 3,077 metres above sea level, the views are amazing and there is a spectacular four-side ten-direction golden statue of Puxian, which is the highest golden Buddha in the world and the crowning glory of the mountain.
