Gaze at a sea of clouds from a sacred Buddhist haven at Emei Mountain, a World Heritage Site and home to over 200 endemic species. One of the most divine mountains in Buddhism, this 3,099 m (10,167 ft) peak features a giant gilded Samantabhadra statue supported by four elephants. Thousand-year-old trees, scenic waterfalls, and a number of observation points with spectacular scenery make this area a popular hiking spot for both pilgrims and tourists.
