What You Can Expect

2-Day Private Tour of Leshan Grand Buddha and Emei Shan including Monastery Stay

Emei Shan Bridge

Day 1: Leshan Grand Buddha (L, D)
After private pickup from your Chengdu hotel, enjoy a relaxing 2-hour drive to the Leshan Grand Buddha. Spend four hours on a guided exploration of the surrounding trails and visit the Wuyou Temple, which houses a large number of calligraphic paintings and various Buddhist artifacts. At the foot of this structure, admire its grandeur - at 233 feet (71 m) high and 92 feet (28 m) wide, it is the largest stone Buddha sculpture in the entire world!

A short drive will take you to the foot of UNESCO World Heritage-listed Emei Shan. Covering an area of about 10 acres (4 ha), there is plenty to see on a walking tour with your guide, like the classical Chinese courtyard surrounded by springs and ponds or the Tiger-Taming Temple, allegedly named because of a pillar built in front that protects people from tiger attacks.

Spend the night at Baoguo Monastery, an ancient temple where you can witness elements of Buddhism, Taoism and Confucianism.

Day 2: Emei Shan (B, L)
After breakfast, follow your guide to the excursion bus that will take you to the cable car station. Board the cable car with your guide to ascend Emei Shan to the Golden Summit. Upon disembarking, find yourself among a sea of clouds at 9,842 feet (3,000 m) above sea level. If you wake up early enough, you can enjoy a gorgeous sunrise from the summit that many people come from afar to witness.

See the tallest golden statue of Puxian, standing at 157 feet (48 m) high. Explore two traditional Buddhist temples - the Woyun Nunnery and Hua Zang Si, where you will find countless padlocks inscribed with couples' names to symbolize eternal love. After spending a whole day atop Emei Shan, your guide will lead you back to the cable cars to descend the mountain, where you’ll embark on your journey back to Chengdu.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2013

Trip was fabulous, Lilian our guide was great and spoke English well. Mt Emei was awesome, well worth the trip, would highly reccommend this two day trip, bus trip up the mountain pretty hairy though. Professional service by Viator, most organised of our other day trips booked with other companies.

Fantastic!!
Although the weather was not great at all (it raining during 2 days), I had a great time.
Leshan and Emei Shan areas are really worth seeing... the mist even made those places more especial.
My guide was very helpful giving me all the extra details regarding the different temples and places.
