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.

Asked by Matthew Doyle from NEW ZEALAND | Jun. 17, 2019 16:44Reply
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

We arrive CTU at 6am on a Wednesday. We want to go tour hotel in Dujiangyan.
Would it be easier to take the long distance bus from the airport? Or airport shuttle bus Line 5 to Xipu bus station and connect to the high speed train?

Thank you!

Oh, it is quite easy to get the direct long-distance bus to Dujiangyan at the airport, but the first bus leaves at 09:40. If you don't wanna wait that long, to take a high speed train at Xipu is a good alternative.
