Mount Emei

Pilgrimage at Mount Emei, the largest of China’s Four Sacred Buddhist Mountains

Mount Emei is the largest of China’s Four Sacred Buddhist Mountains, standing in lofty majesty over Sichuan province at a height of 10,167 ft. Its lush scenery and monastery-dotted slopes attract both pilgrims and tourists, many of them drawn by the prospect of marveling open-jawed at sunrise from the summit. It’s a gratifying five kilometer ascent, much of it along stone steps. A remarkable sight here is the Leshan Giant Buddha.
