Leshan to Emeishan - Transport
We will arrive Leshan around 10am and we are not sure how much time we will take to tour the scenic area.If we cannot get train ticket to Emeishan as we putting a night there, can we get a taxi and how much will it cost and how long is the ride? How is the terrain of the road eg passing by rugged, winding mountain, tunnels? I m concern in terms of safety.

We only hv 1 night, n would like to take cable car up either evening after Leshan or next day morning. Which would be a better? How long would one need to spend up there to view the attractions up to the summit ? 3 hours enough? How much is the cable ride?

Is there intercity coach from Emeishan to Chongqing? How much and how long would it take? Thank you abundantly !

1. From Emeishan to Leshan, if you want to take a taxi, the fare is CNY 200 to CNY300. And the duration is around 1.5 hours.
2. Generally speaking, you don't need to worry about the road condition.
3. You are suggested to tour around on next day morning. The suggested sightseeing time is 5-6 hours.
4. Yes, you can take a direct coach from Emeishan Tourists Transport Center. The bus schedules are 08:30, 09:00 and 11:00. The ticket fare is around CNY130 per person with the duration of 5 hours.

Have a nice journey!

My question is whether or not I will have time to reach the Golden Summit.
I arrive in Chengdu around 11:20 a.m. in the middle of June. I want to reach the Golden Summit, but I probably won't arrive at Emeishan until about 2:00 p.m. Will I still have time to reach the Golden Summit? Also, is there any way to get there besides taking the cable way? Can a taxi drive on Mount Emei?

Thanks!

I have no idea which transportation you will take to arrive at Emeishan. But either by train to Emeishan Rail Station or by bus to Baoguosi Bus Station (available at the Xinnanmen Bus Station), your time shall be tight to Golden Summit.

The taxi is only allowed to reach the foot of the mountain or Leidongping. It takes at least 4 hours to hike to the summit from Leidongping by the way. Then my suggestion is to reach Leidongping first, walk around 20min to the cable car station and take it onto the summit.

Thanks so much! So could I conceivably take a taxi all the way from Chengdu airport to Leidongping? And then walk 20 minutes to cableway that takes me to summit?

Is this possible?

Thanks!

As I know, taxi is only allowed to reach the Yingbin Square at the foot of the mountain. You need to take a sightseeing bus to get to Leidongping.

We will visit E Mei as part of a group already booked during late April. Is it still cold there at that time? Summit? Base?

That's fine. Need to wear thick clothes in the summit. Late April is a nice time. The azelea flowers come out at that time.

Hi,

I land in Chengdu at around 8:30AM. My primary aim is to visit Emei Shan first - is it possible or even feasible to go direct from the airport to Emei Shan? Or would you suggest I go to the bus station in Chengdu, then make my way to Emei Shan? If I do that, I would have wasted half the day already. Is it ok to begin climbing the mountain so late? Thanks for any replies!

Ms.Smitha,

You may go to Long Distance Bus Station near the airport. It is said that there is direct bus from the airport to Mt. Emei. The bus departs around 2:00 pm and the ticket is around CNY 46. Just go there to see if you can catch that bus. If not, you have to go to Xinnanmen Bus Station to take bus to Mt. Emei. Actually, you save about one hour if you go to Mt. Emei from the airport.

I am afraid that you may not have enough time to climb Mt. Emei. It takes more than 2 hours to Mt.Emei. And if you take the bus from the airport, you will arrive around 17:00. Then you need take sight-seeing bus to Leidongping and walk to cable car terminal to take cable car to Golden Peak. You may not catch the last cable car to Golden Peak.
