If you haven’t heard of EMEISHAN , Where’ve you been all these while ?!
Emeishan is a world recognised UNESCO destination where many tourists flock to yearly , as temperature drops to -12 degrees at the peak and there are cable cars available near the peak to send passengers up to the peak. Reason being that routes are too misty and slippery , hence cable car will replace the cars near the top .

I’ve longed since wanted to see REAL SNOW at the peak and how cold it is , because i’ve not seen REAL Snow before !!!! However, it turns out to be disappointment , as we reached there around 12 noon , 2 hours from chengdu , and it takes about 4 hours to go up to the peak and 4 hours return , hence , we’re too late and too rush for the whole itinerary . Besides , we’ve already placed our luggage at the hotel in chengdu , the ENJOYABLE STARS HOTEL , hence, why waste additional money here at EMEISHAN overnight at hotel ?!
This is the EMEISHAN coach terminal. Nice right ?! It’s better than our Golden Mile Coach Terminal ok ?! It’s AIR-CONDITIONED , Quiet and security all over the place . And i took it from CHENGDU XIN NAN MEN BUS STATION .
If you don’t know, EMEISHAN takes about 2 hours coach ride from CHENGDU , hence , many will offer to stay overnight at the bottom of EMEISHAN , to facilitate enough time up and down the mountain . Though lots of persuasion from the guide, we still stick to our plan , to return to chengdu 4 hours later . And i’m extremely glad and HENG AH we sticked to it . (Read on to know why )
Apparently, we’re conned by SGD 50 for 2 of us (my mum and i) via a private guide and private van throughout the whole trip to EMEISHAN and LESHAN . Note that admission charges are not included in the SGD50 .. it’s only the transport and guide for about 4 hours , but pretty glad that though it’s $50 , you can’t find a private tour for 2 here for SGD 50 …. its more than that .
My mum and i were told when we reached EMEISHAN that if we booked the package with hotel , it will be that kind of hotel below. Luckily, we didn’t book because it’s dark inside and unrated ….
All the way right up there , you can see bottom of EMEISHAN , and you can’t see the peak, it’s in the clouds , like genting. The place is VERY VERY BIG , it’s like really you are on the mountain , because it’s quite windy and surrounded by woods and trees , making you feel so relaxed !!!!!!! 🙂
Nice breathtaking view isn’t it ? In English, it means EMEISHAN WELCOMES YOU !!!!!!! 🙂
If you don’t have the time like us , just take a turn at the bottom of EMEISHAN , sure wows you ! 🙂 And that’s a very large TV , depicting how it looks like at the top and it’s like WOW WOW WOW !!
And that’s not your jewel, so don’t steal it . AMAZING ISN’T IT ?! 🙂
Loves the navigation style, hidden among those bushes. So natural environment lah !
Magnificent isn’t it ? Very beautiful waterfall backdrop ! 🙂
A temple hidden inside the trees and jungle .
Loves Emeishan always , because it’s so natural and so magnificent that you feel the horizons and relaxation and space ! 🙂
Stay tuned to part 2 later here and remember to return to catch back more posts ! 🙂
