I went to E mei Shan with a tour group. I have enjoyed the grand size mountains, the ocean like deep gully, the misty and ever changing air, the sculptures, the steps, the buildings, temples and the huge Buddha. It is absolutely amazing.

While a bus and cable car get you most of the way up, there is still about 2 km of hiking up hill between the bus and cable car (1.2 km) and to reach the summit from the cable car (.8 km). It's all worth...More
