Private Day Tour: Mount Emei Tour by high-speed train from Chengdu

The tour is designed for those who have very limited time in Chengdu but want to include a visit to Mount Emei. To make this happen, you will take the early morning high speed train to Mount Emei, and take the late afternoon or evening train back to Chengdu. At Mount Emei, you will travel up to Golden Summit where you will have the panoramic view of Mount Emei.

Stands at 3099 meters (10,167 feet) in the western rim of Sichuan basin, Mount Emei is one of the four scared Buddhist Mountains in China with over 2000 years Buddhism history. It is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site well-known for its breathtaking scenery, mysterious natural wonders, extensive Buddhist culture, abundant range of species and unique landforms.

Attention: You need to prepare that there could be a long queue for the cable car at the Golden Summit in the summer holiday of the months from June to August. If you want to a more relaxing trip, then this tour may not be a good fit for you.
