We stopped here on the way back from our stay at Emeishan. It is a short drive away, maybe 30 minutes or so to the village where you park the car. You must hike for about 20 minutes through the tea fields and bamboo jungle to get to the temple. There is a concrete path, but many people used walking sticks to help them along, and it is probably a challenge for the elderly. The main temple itself is very old, built about 1700 years ago or so. We encountered a local who acted as a tour guide to make extra money for her family and she gave us a tour along the way. She only spoke Chinese so if you need an English or other language guide you should book one in advance. It seems not many Westerners come here as it is out of the way. You will get the best experience here, out of any temple if you are looking for an authenticity. Also we purchased tea directly from the farmers who work in the area and it was the cheapest and freshest we found anywhere! The temple itself is known for it's recently famous "bamboo leaf" tea which we didn't know about until we left. I would try and buy some at the temple or nearby if possible and save yourself some money. This temple is definitely worth a visit if you are in the area and have some time!
