There is more to see than wonderful nature on your walk on Mt. Emei. Temples like this one, mystic, quiet and surrounded by fog are elements which gives the mountain some extra atmosphere and mood.
When we first arrived the whole area was covered with fog and it was almost impossible to see anything around you. 5 minutes later the fog vanished and the sight was much clearer, like in this picture.
Hope you like it!
Mt. Emei is located in Leshan City, Sichuan Province. It is towering, beautiful, old and mysterious. Mt. Emei is like a huge green screen standing in the southwest of the Chengdu Plain. Looking its winding and beautiful figure, you will find that it resembles very much an eyebrow of a girl. It is the highest one among all the famous sight-seeing mountains in China. In Mt. Emei there are four scenic regions: Baoguo Temple, Wannian Temple, Qingyin Pavilion and Golden Summit. Its main peak, the Golden Summit, is 3079.3 meters (10,103 feet) above the sea level, seemingly reaching the sky. Standing on the top of it, you can enjoy the snowy mountains in the west and the vast plain in the east. In addition in Golden Summit there are four spectacles: clouds sea, sunrise, Buddha rays and saint lamps. In 1996 Mt. Emei was enlisted in the world natural and cultural heritage by the UNESCO.
The trees are verdant almost all the year round; the waterfalls are splendid; the whole scenery is beautiful and quiet. The landscape varies according to the seasons, the height of mountain and the climate.

A fine, mysterious mood in this photo. The misty mountain in the background is a good complement to this special architecture.
