As one of the Four Sacred Mountains of Buddhism, Mount Emei is famous for its beautiful natural landscape and Buddhist culture. We’re not surprised it was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1996, and neither will you. In and around the area that makes up Mount Emei are around 30 temples, each with its own peculiarities. Perhaps even more revered at Mount Emei is the incredible scenery, otherwise known as the four wonders. Sunrises are particularly memorable, although of course an early start is required. Alternatively, you may prefer Buddha’s halo, sitting in a sea of clouds, or catching the Holy Light of the Sacred Lamp; each is a wonder just as described in ancient texts and in modern travel guides. Mount Emei is also famous for its martial arts, as it is considered home to one of the main traditional Chinese martial arts other than Shaolin and Wudang.
