Top of the time

You can head inside the temple, this is top of the top and will allow you to see the golden giant buddha statue in another angle.

I hiked from Leidongping base to get to here, it took us about 3hours. It was really hard work,but when we reached it,it was foggy, so it didn't look so beautiful. So little bit disappointed.

We stayed overnight at this temple on our hike up Emeishan. It is fairly remote and Lone Planet warns that the place may be a bit creepy if you are on your own. It is small but seemed to accommodate ~ 30 people with no problems. Prices ranged from 40 RMB per person for a dorm room to 260 RMB... More
