The View Atop Mt. Emei

Category: Outdoor Scenes


Photo and caption by Gareth Mok

Taken from the Golden Summit of Mt. Emei in Sichuan, China. This photograph shows the Daxiangling mountain range which extends along the western side of Mt. Emei. The journey behind this photograph involved a 5am start; an hour and a half bus journey up the mountain, a short cable car journey and a further hour and a half ascension on foot to the summit on icy terrain at sub-zero temperatures. Upon reaching the top I was greeted with Mt. Emei's famed Cloud Sea. The journey was entirely worth the spectacular natural beauty of this area.

Location: Mt. Emei, Sichuan, China
