Known as one of the four sacred Buddhist mountains in China, Mount Emei in Leshan city, Sichuan is where many ancient temples are located, including Baoguo Temple, Fuhu Temple, Shengshui Temple, and Wannian Temple.


Between Baoguo and Fuhu temples is the luxuriant Bu Jin Lin, a forest said to be planted there by monk Ji Wan during Qing Dynasty (1644-1912), comprising 109,000 Phoebe zhennan trees.


Another lush forest can be found near Bailong Temple, at 800 meters above sea level, comprising more than 10 Phoebe zhennan trees planted during Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) and 20,000 trees, including Phoebe zhennan, cypress, pine, and cedar, planted in 1984.


At 3,077 meters above sea level, the Jinding Peak, or Golden Summit, offers the best sights of the mountain, including the ancient Huazang Temple, sea of white clouds, the magnificent sunrise, and the marvelous solar halo phenomenon, also known as Buddha’s Halo.
