Then, we will set out for a comfortable ride on this 2-day private Chengdu tour package to Leshan and Mt. Emei. Upon arrival at Leshan, we will arrange a Leshan cruise trip for you. Leshan is situated near the mountains and rivers with fascinating natural landscape.

Emei at its entrance. Baoguo Temple is the Buddhist activity center of Mt. Emei, and the Mahavira Hall inside is one of the best preserved wooden-structure buildings in the region of south of the Yangtze River. Furthermore, there is a cultural relics collection room housing various kinds of ceramics, jades, literature and painting work, metal ware and unearthed weapons of Warring States Period (475 - 221 BC).

Shrouded in mist all the year round, the imposing Golden Summit looks very mysterious and charming.

 Friendly Tips

1. Because of the limited conditions in mountain area, the lunch of this 2 days Chengdu tour to Leshan and Mt. Emei would be relatively simple. Hence, we kindly suggest you prepare some preferable snacks by yourself in advance.
2. The highest elevation of the Golden Summit on Mt. Emei is up to 3,077 meters (10,095 feet) above sea level, which belongs to the high-altitude region. Please kindly contact your doctor to inquire if you are allowed to go to such a high place if necessary.
3. From November to the following March, the mountains would be covered by snow, and parts of the mountain roads would be icy. Therefore, it is recommended to be prepared with antiskid shoes and warm clothes if you are going to travel during this period of time.

Leshan in one day
We would like to go to Leshan in one day from Chengdu. Is this possible?

If you can buy the round trip train tickets in the same day, it is enough for you to visit Leshan Giant Buddha from Chengdu in one day. And I kindly suggest you reach to the scenic spot before 10 am since it will be more tourists there at noon.

The altitude of Mt. Emei is about 3,077 meters (10,095 feet) which belongs to the high-altitude region. However, generally speaking, it is not easy to have altitude reaction on Mt. Emei. We kindly suggest you consult your doctor and bring some medicine by yourself before the tour. Our guide will be also pleased to help you to buy the medicine which can prevent altitude sickness if you think it is inconvenient to take medicine from abroad. Thanks for your attention.
