From Leshan and the Giant Buddha I continued to Emei city and the buddhist mountain Emeishan or Mount Emei. China has four buddhist mountains whereas Emeishan is the tallest with its 3000 meters. They say you can easily spend three days if you wish to hike to the top. Alternatively there is plenty of options to catch buses or cable cars some of the way if you like me only have 1-2 days. On Emeishan you can experience wild monkeys (I saw a few), the most picturesque views and nature at it's best.
I took a bus most of the way up (1.5 h) and then hiked the last 2 hours. The sight that met me when I reached the top in the afternoon was absolutely stunning!
During the ride to the top the sky was continuously hazy, the mountain was covered in a blanket of mist and the temperature kept falling. During the last 30 minutes of the ascent it literally felt like being IN the clouds and suddenly I reached the Golden Summit on the top of Emeishan where the sky was as blue as the Danish summer sky, the sun was shining so bright and strong that I felt my cheeks burning after 15 minutes and the view was the most beautiful I've seen in China so far.
