First, the natural environment

Leshan Giant Buddha and Dujiangyan are all artificially constructed landscapes, so when it comes to natural scenery, the main difference is the difference between Mount Emei and Mount Qingcheng.

Mount Emei: beautiful scenery

Mount Emei is 3099 meters above sea level, much higher than the 1,260 meters of Mount Qingcheng, and a higher altitude can bring a richer landscape. Such as the famous "Emei Shijing" and temples all over the mountains; Listen Shuangqiao voiceless gurgling water feel freehand brushstrokes, listen to Wannian Temple's dusk morning bell experience Dharma dignified, leisure time but also molested Mount Emei monkeys; even if Is to want to slowly play, but also have sufficient content to experience. Although there is no Emei "Five Sacred Mountains alone," the first name, but in the golden sunrise like Jinding can bring you a kind of "will be extremely Ling, list of small hills" feeling. If there is affinity, but also to see the Buddha light and holy lamp, although in nature a natural phenomenon, but still with a miraculous sense of solemnity.

Qingcheng Mountain: quiet deep

For those who want to leisure mountaineering, Qingcheng lower elevation apparently much to be suitable. Qingcheng Mountain landscape does not take the beautiful route Emeishan, but with layers of jungle to create a deep and quiet feeling. When you think the front seems stagnant, take a few steps it is superficial. Different from the solemn Buddhist atmosphere in Mount Emei, the Taoist atmosphere in Qingcheng Mountain is more aura, and the smoke-filled sandalwood brings the illusion of "emergence and immortality."

Second, humanities

Leshan Mount Emei: Buddha statues and temples

Leshan Giant Buddha and "one of the four famous Buddhism" Mount Emei, in the overall cultural atmosphere have shown a strong Buddhist style. Leshan Giant Buddha's path along the cliff there are many small Buddha statues, and Mount Emei more Wannian Temple, reported Temple and Emei Golden Temple, as well as the famous statue of the four sides and ten square Samantabovetsu. For those who love Buddhist culture, you want to burn incense and worship is a very suitable place for tourists.

Qingcheng Mountain in Dujiangyan: Water Conservancy Project and Taoism

The landscape of Qingcheng Mountain in Dujiangyan shows a more integrated style. Dujiangyan belongs to the ancient water conservancy project, science and education is more important; while the scenic area of ​​the two kings temple is civil in order to commemorate the construction of Li Bing and son of Dujiangyan and built. Qingcheng Mountain is one of the "four famous mountains of Taoism". There are many Taoist buildings and Taoists in the mountains. If you want to pursue more than two thousand years of monuments and Taoist culture, then Dujiangyan and Mount Qingcheng more appropriate.

Third, the schedule and recommended route

Leshan Mount Emei: fast one-day tour or depth of two-day tour

Leshan Mount Emei as the tour more content, so you can have more and more rich arrangements, such as a day trip, two-day tour or even three-day tour are possible. Of course, the longer the time schedule, the more natural experience.

Stay at the top of Mount Emei or mountainside at night, the tranquility of the mountain can effectively relax. The morning of the next morning go to Jinding to see the sunrise and the famous "four wonders", visit other attractions in the afternoon after the safe return to Chengdu. Although this kind of play takes two days, but can completely vent their own, if you have plenty of time, then choose a two-day tour will be better.

Dujiangyan Qingcheng Mountain: a quick day trip, take a look at the panda
