"It's so beautiful! Although there was no sun, the visibility was very high and I saw a shocking view! The scenic area is very large, the tickets can be used for two days, only stayed for one day because of the itinerary, and many places did not go. It is recommended to live on the mountain for one day and have fun for two days!"

Reasons to Recommend: Mount Emei is one of the four famous mountains of Chinese Buddhism, and it is also the temple of Samantabhadra Bodhisattva. There are numerous Buddhist monasteries in the mountains that combine to give this place a holy and serene atmosphere. The scenery in the mountains are beautiful. The four seasons each have their own characteristics. If you are lucky, you can see the sunrise and sea of clouds. Do note that the monkeys in Mount Emei are notoriously naughty. They are not afraid of people, and even take the initiative to ask tourists for food.

"First-line day, in fact, the main destination of this trip is not the first-line day. We are passing by. We mainly go to see monkeys. The monkeys here are all skinned. Groups of tourists find things to eat. If you don't give it, you will have to steal it. Many female friends are scared."

Reasons to Recommend: Yixiantian is situated on the road from Qingyin Pavilion to Hongchunping Temple. Walking along in the canyon, visitors can hear the roar of the waterfall by the ear, with steep cliffs standing on both sides. It is like a giant axe that has split the mountain and a line of blue sky is revealed. In the past, the cliff path was narrow and simple. Visitors often fell for the path being slippery. It has now been converted into reinforced concrete plank road.
