Sarah and I visited Emeishan City at the base of Mount Emei (aka Emeishan) in August. Mount Emei is one of the Four Sacred Mountains of Buddhism in China. We actually spent a few nights at Baoguo Temple (aka Baoguosi) and spent a day hiking up Mount Emei-–which was like climbing the world’s longest flight of stairs on a super hot day!
I don’t remember those stairs being quite as long as the Great Wall’s stairs. That was longer. And hotter. At least the mountain had trees!
They were both long hard climbs for me!
