I was in Chengdu on 12 May 2013 and signed up for a domestic tour package covering Emei Shan and LeShan Big Buddha. The ground package sourced via internet cost our peers at only RMB450 per person. It was a tour package on a Two Days One night package on coach with accommodation, meals and entrance fees packaged in.
The coach was nice, decent and comfortable; our package was indeed cheaper than those purchased by the local. Four of us ( from Malaysia) blend in well with the local as we are bi-lingual and able to communicate with the local. Our package even have a free show of acrobatic and the famous Si-Chuan masks changing show. SImply amazing on the speed that the performers managed to change their masks.
We enjoy our tour very much but there is a setback as the tour package does not include the cable car ride, Three times for a cost of RMB 195 per pax. Very highly priced.
We have a tough walk of 4.5 km despite thrice cable car ride.
Emei Shan is a tough itinerary not for the faint hearted and those physically not as fit.
