Emei Mountain or Mount Emei in Chengdu, China stands 3,099 meters (10,167 ft.) above sea level and is the highest of China’s four holy Buddhist Mountains. The name “Emei” literally means “delicate eyebrow”, this name is derived from two of the mountain`s peaks, Wanfo (Ten Thousand Buddha) Summit and Golden Summit, which face each other and resemble the delicate eyebrows of a Chinese beauty.
The temperate climate in which it is located and the abundant rainfall allows for a luxurious green landscape all year round and provides a perfect environment for hundreds of species of rare animals and plants. The mountain was added to UNESCO`s Natural and Cultural Heritage List in 1996.
