Travelers can also take bus No. 8 to Tianxia Mingshan bus stop first and then walk about 500 yards to Mt. Emei Tourism Bus Center. From there travelers can take sightseeing buses to other scenic spots. Or upon getting off bus No. 8, walk for a while to start climbing the mountain on foot.

Do not mistake Emei Railway Station as Emeishan Railway Station

There is a train station called Emei Railway Station about 6 miles (10 km) away from Mt. Emei. It only serves non-bullet trains, including K118, K113, K9471 and K145 to/from Beijing, Kunming, and Panzhihua, etc.

Instead of arriving there directly, most visitors prefer to arrive in Chengdu first. After sightseeing there, hop on a bullet train to Emeishan Station which is closer to Mt. Emei. If you have no other choice but Emei Station, the bus no.8 can take you to Mt. Emei scenic area from that station.

There are lockers at the airport, it should be OK for 2 days. You can find them near the gate No. 6 and 7 on departure floor of T1 and also near the checkin counter at N and P zone for T2.

The costs depends on the size of lockers. For small sized locker, it is CNY18 for first 24 hours and CNY2 for every extra 6 hours. Middle sized lockers cost CNY28 for first 24 hours and CNY4 for every extra 6 hours. The large sized locker is CNY40 for first 24 hours and CNY5 for every extra 6 hours.

It is due to the railway schedule adjustment. They are now not available for sale. You can check them later again, they should back later I think.

Private tour or taxi service for 1-day tour of Emeishan
Hi. Is there any private tour for a family of 4 or taxi service for hire for a day to tour Mt. Ermei? I was told by a friend living in Chengdu that there is no taxi service there and Leshan city/town as well? Is it true? Is there any way to call for cab service?

The last bus may be around 9:30 or 10pm. Not very sure. The distance is about 2km away only. You may think about the taxi or to see if the hotel can arrange it for you.

Last bus from Emeishan Tourism Bus Center (Baoguo Bus Station) to Chengdu/XinNanMen ?
We are traveling in September 2017, planning to go from Chengdu to Leshan in the morning and then spend 2 night in the Baoguo, Emei Mountain. On our last day visit Mt Emei then return to Chengdu. What is the last bus from The Baoguo Temple Bus Station to XinNanMen? How much does it cost and can I buy the tickets ahead (if yes, where?) or on the day itself?

Ccannot find a timetable, but the duration may around 4 to 5 hours and cost about CNY50. YOu need to buy it when you arrive there. The final bullet ride departs at 9:15pm to Mt. Emei, the price is CNY11 for a second class seat.
Answered by Madeleine from USA | Jul. 28, 2017 15:21

Thank you very much Charlotte. That's a good idea .... I'll see the schedule when I buy the ticket when I get there... t I think the last bus from Emeishan to Chengdu is around 6pm-6:30pm; so that would give me almost one more full day to visit Emeishan.
