Mt. Emei is located in Leshan City, Sichuan Province. It's one of the most well-known summer destinations in China. It is towering, beautiful, and mysterious which seems like a huge green screen standing in the southwest of the Chengdu Plain. Mount Emei was enlisted as one of the world's natural and cultural heritage by UNESCO in 1996.

With the pleasant weather and congenial atmosphere, the mountain is characterized by lofty ancient trees, impressive waterfalls, and pristine brooks. Mt. Emei is a sacred Buddhist heaven dotted with numerous Buddhist temples. The mountain enjoys great popularity among Buddhists in China as it's regarded as one of the four most divine Buddhist mountains in China, for being the dojo of Samantabhadra Bodhisattva. Traveling to Emei, you can feel a strong religious and cultural atmosphere. Here in Mount Emei, you may see streams of Buddhist pilgrims armed with joss sticks conquer the steep stairs of the mountain and swarm into the countless temples every morning.

Mount Emei consists of 4 scenic regions, Baoguo Temple, Wannian Temple, Qingyin Pavilion and Golden Summit.

Its main peak, the Golden Summit, is 3079.3 meters (10,103 feet) above sea level, seemingly reaching the sky. Standing on the top of it, you can enjoy the snowy mountains in the west and the vast plain in the east. In addition, in Golden Summit there are four spectacles: clouds sea, sunrise, Buddha rays, and saint lamps.

The Baoguo Temple located at the foot of Mt. Emei is the largest temple on Mount Emei. Built during the years of the Wanli period in the Ming Dynasty, it is the place where the Mt. Emei Buddhist Society is located.

Wanian Temple, one of the eight largest temples on Mount Emei was first built in the East Jin Dynasty and was renamed as White Water Puxian Temple after a series of devastation and reconstruction. There are five halls lay in a tiered style of the Temple including the Buddha Maitreya Hall, the Mountain Gate, Wei'e Treasure Hall, Brick Hall, the Treasure Hall of Great Hero.

Qingyin Pavilion was built in the Tang Dynasty by a Buddhist monk whose Buddhist spiritualism exists today around the mountain. The pavilion displays a fine natural picture with pavilions, towers, and corridors exquisitely combined with waters and hills.
