Mount Emei(an elevation of 3 099 metres),located 165 kilometres from Chengdu,capital of.Sichuan Province,draws the most attention for its 154-kilometre spread,attracting tourists since ancient times with phenome-nal views all the year round.

Mt.Emei is known as one of the four primary shrine mountains of Bud-dhism in China and the famous national park,situated 7kin southwest of Emeishan City,Sichuan Province.The mountain stretches out for 23km from south to north,occupying an area of about 115km2.Viewed from afar,its catchy Dare and E’e hills stand side by side in quite a symmetry,long and thin like the delicate eyebrows of a beautiful maid,hence the name,which literally means“the charming eyebrow of a beautiful maid”in Chinese.

The long extending range of Mt Emei lies between Mt Liangshan and Mt Laishan,referred to as“Mr Emei block belt”in geology.In its very long development,the mountain has gone through various ice invasion,water erosion,and wind sweeping of the nature,and finally presents itself with a rich diversity of miraculous scenes.The altitude difference of thousands me-ters brings about a temperature drop as sharp as 15℃,.and atop the mountain it is rainy and foggy,with an average of 263.5 raining days a year,hence the mountain is veiled behind misty cloudsalmost all year round,and it is a rare opportunity to have clear glimpse of the entire moun-tain.
