Travel Itinerary

  • Day 1:
    Beijing/Shanghai – Chengdu (L)
    • Flight to Chengdu in the morning.
    • Upon arrival in Chengdu, our local partner will meet you at the airport.
    • Transfer to hotel.
    • In the afternoon visit the Giant Panda Breeding Research Base, where you will encounter one of the most endangered animals in the world, the giant panda, along with its equally endearing cousin, the lesser red panda.
    • An autumn visit could include seeing tiny newborn pandas in their "nursery".
    • Transfer to Qianwei County (3 hour drive).
    • Check in at Hotel in the evening. 
    • Overnight in Qian Wei County.
  • Day 2:
    Qian Wei County – Leshan – Mt. Emei (B L)
    • Transfer to Jia Yang train station to experience a first generation steam train.
    • This classic is regarded as 'A living fossil of the Industrial Revolution'. Since opened to the public in 1959, the steam train became the main transportation for the local villagers. With the railway line of 19.84 kilometers, narrow gauge of 0.76m, and the steam engine technology invented by Watt in 18th century Britain, this train appeals to many visitors from China and abroad. 
    • In the afternoon drive to Leshan, a friendly city, where you will visit the 71 meter high Grand Buddha at the Lingyun Temple. This immense carving was begun in 713 AD by a Buddhist monk engineer/fund-raiser in hopes of stopping the deaths of boatmen who were often lost in a swirling hollow where the Dadu and Min rivers meet. This purpose was actually accomplished as the rock debris removed from the cliff face to carve the Buddha filled in the dangerous hollow and calmed the river’s waters.
    • Then a cruise on Min River will provide you with further views of the Grand Buddha.
    • Transfer to Mt. Emei in the evening.
    • Overnight on Mt. Emei
  • Day 3:
    Mt. Emei (B L D)
    • Early in the morning we will take an eco-tourism coach to the Lei Dongping parking lot which is next to the Golden Summit.
    • After a pleasant 30 minute walk to the cable car station, you will take the cable car to the Golden Summit. With an elevation of 3099 meters, if it is a fine day, you will be in for a treat of luxuriant green vistas stretching out below your feet; the Min, Qingyi and Dadu Rivers are like three pieces of silk stringing their way through the mountains and Daxue and Gongga mountain ranges appear to hold up the sky that glows with an almost holy light.
    • Sightseeing at Huazang Temple. Huazang Temple sits at 3,077 meters (10095 ft.) above sea level on top of Golden Summit, Mt. Emei. This is the main peak (though not the highest point) of Emei Mountain, which is the highest of all the most common mountain tourist destinations in China. Huangzang Temple was constructed during the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) and was restored in the 1970's to its original condition. It contains three halls: the Laughing Buddha Hall, the Great Hero Hall and the Hall of Universal Benevolence God.
    • Take cable car down to parking lot, transfer to the foot of the mountain.
    • Visit Bao Guo Temple and see the stone carving. At the foot of Mt. Emei, Baoguo Temple is the first sight one meets along the route up the mountain. It is the largest temple on Mt. Emei and was built during the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644). The temple is the center of Buddhist activities on the mountain and was formerly called Huizong Hall, which means combination of three religions, namely Buddhism, Taoism and Confucianism. Tourists visiting this temple will enjoy a sampling of precious Buddhist cultural relics, reminding them of years long past, while serene gardens bring them back to the beauty of the present.
    • Overnight in E'mei.
  • Day 4:
    E.Mei-Chengdu (B L D)
    • Take an eco-tourism coach to the base of Wannian Temple
    • Take cable car up to visit Wannian Temple, located halfway up the mountain.
    • The temple was initially built in 420 and was given the present name of Wannian Temple (Ten-Thousand-Years Temple) by Emperor Shenzong of the Ming Dynasty (1537-1619) who wished to celebrate his mother's birthday and changed the name of the temple in hope of her longevity. The importance of the temple lies in not only its long history and glorious past, but also being the main ritual place of the Samantabhadra Bodhisattva.
    • Inside the Mongolian, tent-shaped, beamless brick hall is a 7.3-meter statue of Samantabhadra sitting on an elephant, which was cast in Chengdu in 980 during the Song Dynasty and weighs 62,000 kg. Afterwards trek downhill via the Qingyin Pavillion, Yixiantian and monkey area. Finish at the Wuxiangang car park where you will board an eco-tourism car to the foot of the mountain
