Weather: Overcast, lots of fog!

Second day of trek of Emei shan!

We decided considering the walk was not ver scenic (along the road, no footpath, constant car collision path), we would bus it from this point on.

So we caught a bus to Leidong and then a cable car to the to top and then a monorail to the very tip of the mountain.

The top was very foggy and it wasn’t really worth the trip.

The temples were pretty but you could barly see them.  (The ten thousand buddhas was more like ten because they were renovating!).

After that we ate lunch and bused down to Baoguo (still can’t believe so many rich chinese payed for porters).

Decided we were sick and unimpressed with the mountain so we caught the bus back to Chengdu (ew spitting country men on the bus).

Ate some Thai food (yum!) and prepared for tomorrow!
