Mount Emei – Golden Summit at 10,000ft

This morning we made an early start to try to reach the summit of Mount Emei before the worst of the group tours and weather. Unfortunately the place is an absolute tourist trap (99% chinese tourists) and when we got off the bus we were trapped by the hordes of tour groups. As we had cheated by taking the bus most of the way, we chose to hike the last 500m of climb up to the summit and back – and at least then it was quieter as most of the other people take the cable car.

Overall, a bit disappointing, we didn’t even see the aggressive attack monkeys we had been warned about.
