On the map, from left to right, there are A-line, B-line and sightseeing bus routes, which can be arranged in a flexible combination.
The most worthwhile experience in Mount Emei is hiking on foot, not only to enjoy the beautiful scenery, but also to lose weight.
There is no special scenery in the low mountain area of Baoguo Temple to Qingyin Pavilion. There is no increase in altitude when climbing and climbing. It takes 3 hours to walk 12 kilometers in the same place. It is not recommended to climb this section. You can take a sightseeing bus to five. The mountain or the Wanniansi station began to climb. Lines A and B are separated in the Qingyin Pavilion and merged in Jiulinggang. The A line will pass the most anticipated ecological monkey area and the 99th turn. The scenery is better than the B line, but the distance is 17.5 kilometers longer than the B line. This is the favorite route for the mountain climbers. On the way from Xianfeng Temple to Yuxian Temple, there is a rocky landslide. The management staff will remind the friends not to walk. In fact, they have already set up a simple path, which is acceptable. The scenery on line B is a bit less, but the distance is shorter than the A line. You can consider hiking on this line.
“Uphill bronchitis, downhill arthritis”, down the mountain will wear the meniscus of the knee, it is recommended to take the sightseeing car down the mountain.

This is also the route of the travel agency.
There are various ways, such as living near the Qingyin Pavilion, and starting the next day to climb the mountain on foot. I used Wannian Temple as a starting point and struck most of the Emeishan attractions in three days.
【stay in the temple】
Emeishan foot is all hotels, the standard room is very affordable, the rooms are not tense, the price of the Golden Week is fierce, and it is necessary to book in advance.
There are many farmhouses in the Qingyin Pavilion on the mountain. They will pick up at the Baoguo Temple Station and take you up the mountain for free. If you want to live anywhere, you can go and see; otherwise, you must resolutely refuse, if you don’t want to live after going up the mountain, no one will carry you down the mountain.
Leidongping is also a hotel concentration area. The conditions are good. If you want to see the sunrise and don’t want to live in Jinding’s friends, you can consider resting here.。
There are only three hotels in Jinding, Jinding Hotel, Jinding Villa, and Huaili Hotel. The price is very expensive all year round, but the platform to leave the sunrise is a step away. You can go to the sunrise with a jacket. The conditions are not bad.
Finally, the grand launch of Emeishan’s characteristic accommodation – temples, Emei Mountain is also one of the few scenic spots that can provide temple accommodation. The temples along the Emei Mountain can be accommodated, allowing visitors to experience the faith of the ancient Buddha and eat an authentic vegetarian meal. There are many rooms, five-person rooms, four-person rooms, three-person rooms, two-person rooms, one-person rooms, standard rooms and deluxe rooms in the temple rooms, all of which are sold according to the bed. The common beds range from 60 yuan to more than 100 yuan. Standard rooms and deluxe rooms The beds range from 200 to 300 yuan. The temple is all-wood structure, with beds, electric blankets, charging sockets, public toilets, public baths, electric water heaters, can eat vegetarian food, standard rooms and deluxe rooms have TVs and separate bathrooms, small temples have no public bathroom. The advantage of temple accommodation is that it will not increase in price throughout the year, including the Golden Week. The disadvantage is that it cannot be booked through the Internet or by phone. It is on a first-come, first-served basis. During the National Day Golden Week, the Xianfeng Temple and Taiziping, which I stayed in, can live at 5 or 6 in the evening, so as soon as possible, the temples are still not full. On the mountain, some places do not have a shop in front of the village, and living in a temple is a better choice. The hardware conditions of the temple are worse than the farmhouse, and it is very hard. It is worthwhile to satisfy the curiosity experience once again. Mindful friends still live in the hotel.
【vegetarian food in temple吃斋饭】
The temple provides vegetarian meals, and the veritable vegetarian meal is exactly the same as the sorghum in the temple. There is a fixed time for vegetarian food, breakfast is 6:30-9:00 10 yuan, lunch is 11:30-14:00 20/30 yuan, dinner is 18:00-21:00 20/30 yuan, and each temple is slightly different. Out of date is gone. Buffet or group meals, including rice, kidney beans, bamboo shoots, potatoes, tomato scrambled eggs, pumpkin, soup, etc., how much to eat, not enough to add, full, can not be left. In the mountains of two or three kilometers above sea level, food is hard to come by, and it is also very happy to have vegetarian food.
Weather: Emei Mountain has more than 260 days of rainy days a year. The climate in the mountains is changeable, and the foot of the mountain is raining. There is no problem climbing the mountain in rainy days, but it is not raining to watch the sunrise.
Night Climb: There are no street lights on the mountain, and it is not recommended to climb at night. Climb the mountain during the day and stay close to the evening.
Raincoat: Must buy, buy at the foot of the mountain, 2-5 yuan / piece, 10 yuan / piece on the mountain. It is convenient to rain and climb the mountain to wear raincoats.
Monkey stick: mountaineering bamboo stick, 2 yuan / root, can be used as a trekking pole, but also scare the monkey, must buy on foot. Choose a stick with a knot at the bottom. If you go up the mountain from Baoguo Temple, you can buy it at the foot of the mountain. If you take a sightseeing bus up the mountain and then hike, the sightseeing car will not let the monkey stick, and then buy it on the mountain. If you take a sightseeing bus and go directly to Leidongping, you don’t have to buy it.
Water Cup: For hiking, buy a 1000ml. The mineral water on the mountain is 5-10 yuan/bottle, but most temples can be used for free.
Food: The mountain foot supermarket is very expensive, the food is best to buy before, or to buy in Southwest Jiaotong University. Every other section of the mountain has a snack bar in the rest area, mineral water, red cattle, instant noodles, rice pudding, barbecue, corn on the cob, fruit, bean curd rice, fried rice, everything, the whole mountain unified price tag, not expensive or cheap. So as long as you go up the mountain, you can prepare some bread and water, and you can solve three meals along the way. Hiking on the mountain must be carried with Snickers, which is very useful for restoring physical strength.
Clothing: The foot of the mountain is not cold. In the low mountainous area, the mountainous area can climb the mountain and wear short sleeves. In the high mountain area, you need to wear long sleeves and jackets. The top of the mountain is low in temperature, you need to catch a fleece jacket, or a sweater and a jacket. There are coats for rent on the top of the mountain.
Sunscreen: The problem is not heavy on rainy days, but on a sunny day, the ultraviolet rays on the mountain are strong, and it will turn into black skin in a while, and apply sunscreen.
Cash: Chengdu and Emeishan, many attractions to buy tickets, tickets, meals, accommodation can only use cash, can not use WeChat, Alipay, friends must be fully cash. The bus coins are prepared in advance, basically 2 yuan or 1 yuan, and the subway banknotes are self-purchased.
