The private itinerary today will focus on Mt. Emei itself and two renowned temples on it, Baoguo Temple and Wannian Temple. As one of the four most famous Buddhist mountains in China, Mt. Emei boasts temples and gathers Buddhist culture. In addition, owing to its majestic cliffs, deep valleys, flying waterfalls, sea cloud and verdant forests, the mountain has been reputed as 'a beauty spot under heaven' by Chinese people since ancient times. Situated at the foot of Mt. Emei, Baoguo Temple is the largest temple on Mt. Emei and known as the No.1 scenic spot on the mountain. It is a magnificent architecture complex with a succession of four temple halls, which are shaded with green pines and luxuriant cypresses. The exquisite pavilions and beautiful gardens can also be seen here. Wannian Temple is one of the oldest temples on Mt. Emei which houses rich Buddhist cultural relics. 

Meals: Western buffet breakfast, Lunch
Attention: According to the official news, the Wannian Cable Car running between the parking lot to the Wannian Temple in Mt. Emei is under renovating from Oct 28, 2017 to Apr 10, 2018. During this period, travelers have to make an average hike around one hour up to the temple. You may also choose to visit the Golden Summit instead to avoid the hiking. Your travel consultant will make the relevant arrangement according to your preference.

Based on the previous weather statistics, the temperature may range from 0C to 10C. There may have several rainy days. But generally speaking, it won't influence the sightseeing a lot. :)

Kathmandu -> Chengdu -> Los Angeles ?
I will need to fly a KLM Flying Blue partner for this flight from Chengdu to Los Angeles.

China Eastern qualifies for this.

When I go to China Eastern to look at their flights it lists Shanghai as a “transfer” point between CHG and LAX. I think I will be changing planes at Shanghai but not leaving leaving the airport through security.

Does this qualify for the 144 hour visa in Chengdu?

I’m pretty sure based on above that the answer is going to be “no”...

No, I am afraid not. You can have only one stop in mainland China.

How to get to UESTC Pidu campus from Leeden Hotel, Hong Xing Lu Yi Duan?
My conference will be in UESTC, Pidu main hall. But, I booked hotel in Leeden Hotel Chengdu, Hong Xing Lu Yi Duan, Chun Xi Lu Shang Quan, Jinjiang Qu. Is it convenient to travel back and forth to the conference site? How to get there using bus/train?

Sorry I didn't find Pidu Campus, thus do you refer to Shehe Campus? If yes, the distance is not far. You can take bus no.7 to Fuqing Road Bus Stop. Walk southeast around 600 meters to find the campus.
Or for your convenience, just take a taxi to the destination. The cab fare is around CNY10.

Whereabouts at the Chengdu airport do we apply for the 144 hour transit permit?
I'm assuming there is a desk or office in the airport somewhere, however when I did the same thing in Guangzhou in 2017, there were no signs to indicate where to go or what the procedure was. It took me 6 hours to leave the airport that day and I don't want to go through the same experience again.

Thanks, Matt
