Emei-Shan is a lush and tall sacred mountain dotted with twenty active temples and monestaries linked by hundreds of thousands of stairs. It has been one of the Middle Kingdom's four Buddhist Mountains since the advent of Buddhism in China and is nowadays a popular pilgrimage site. In season, you will share the path with people of all ages and all walks of life attempting the arduous climb of more than 2500m elevation gain. Despite the boisterous activity at the temples, shrouded in clouds of incense, the mountain is vast so there are plenty of opportunities to enjoy without disturbances the scenic views over precipituous crags, and the beautiful forest of pine, fir, and cedar trees. Emei-Shan is a UNESCO World Heritage site. Emei is in Sichuan, 200km south of Chengdu, and can be reached by train.
