Mount Emei is well-known for its enjoyable natural scenery, extensive Buddhist culture, abundant range of species and unique landform. Thus it gets such titles as 'Kingdom of Plants', 'Geological Museum', 'Animals' Paradise' and 'Buddhist Celestial Mountain'.

 Florid Natural Scenery
Going into the mountain, you can see continuous ranges of peaks and tall trees covering on them. Water flows swiftly as if it were flying. Birds are singing and pretty butterflies are dancing. In spring, all the creatures are burgeoning and the whole mountain is in a fresh green coat; in summer, beautiful flowers are blooming one after another in a way of competition; in autumn, the entire mountain is decorated by the red leaves which make the site so amazing that it is far beyond your imagination; in winter, it is covered by snow like a pure bride with white wedding dress.

 Profound Buddhist Culture
Mount Emei is one of the four celebrated Buddhist Mountains in China. It is said that Buddhism was brought here in the first century BC. After nearly 2,000 years of development, the site has become a place rich in Buddhist heritage, which has made it an influential sacred place in China and even in the whole world. There are vivid and exquisite statues of Buddha made of clay, wood, jade, bronze and porcelain. As one of the three genres of Chinese martial art in China, Emeishan Mountain has gained its reputation both at home and abroad.
