How to get to Emei Mountain in Sichuan China

Most convenient: By train

  • High speed train to Emei Shan Station. If going from Chengdu, train number starts with letter C
  • If you flew into Chengdu, there is a high speed railway stop at the airport that can take you directly to Emei too
  • Note there are 2 railway stations in Emei, old one is Emei Station, new one where more high speed trains pass is Emei Shan Station. They look like this:

By bus

  • normally travellers take buses from Chengdu, Leshan, Chongqing to Emai Mountain
  • From Chengdu: direct bus at New South Gate Bus Terminal, every 30min, 2hr ride, cost 47rmb (same place you'd catch a bus to Leshan)
  • From Leshan: you can take direct buss from Leshan Buddha scenic place to Emei Mountain scenic place for 10rmb, ride time around 30min, runs every hour. There are also buses inside Leshan city to Emei
  • There are also 2 bus terminals in Emei, one is in the city, one is in the scenic area, make sure you get on the right bus!
  • If you end up at the bus terminal in the Emei city instead of the one in the scenic area, you can take local bus #8 and get off at Baoguo Temple Stop (报国寺天下名山牌坊站), 2rmb. Alternatively a taxi would cost 20rmb
