Under the universal radiance of Buddha's light, the magnificent landscapes and Zen journey unfold

🌟【Unveiling the Mysteries of Mount Emei】 Mount Emei, ranking first among China's four sacred Buddhist mountains and a dual heritage of nature and culture, attracts countless travelers with its majestic and perilous natural scenery and profound Buddhist cultural heritage. Here, one can find both the stunning beauty of competing peaks shrouded in mist and the Zen world of temples with the melodious sound of Buddhist chants. 🍃【Spotlight on Attractions·A Heavenly Scroll of Landscapes】 1. Pilgrimage to the Golden Summit: The Golden Summit, at an altitude of 3099 meters, is the highest point of Mount Emei and the best spot to watch the sunrise, admire the sea of clouds, and gaze upon the Buddha's light. The resplendent ten-direction Samantabhadra bronze statue stands tall here, awe-inspiring and spiritually cleansing. 2. Zen Practice at Wannian Temple: The Wannian Temple, established during the Eastern Jin Dynasty, is surrounded by ancient trees and resonant bell sounds. It houses the world-famous Beamless Brick Hall and the 62-ton Samantabhadra on Elephant bronze statue, making it an unmissable stop for experiencing Zen meditation and understanding Buddhist culture. 3. Listening to the Spring at Qingyin Pavilion: The clear and tranquil waters of Qingyin Lake ripple gently, with streams on both sides of Qingyin Pavilion converging to form the exquisite scenery of 'Dual Bridges and Clear Sounds.' Listening to the babbling brooks here, one feels the peace and harmony of nature, as if stepping into a poetic painting. 🍲【Gourmet Exploration·Authentic Emei Flavors】 The delicacies at the foot of Mount Emei are also drool-worthy.
