After a breakfast of fried egg (with chopsticks) and bread, we set off on a bus part way up Mt Emei. Along with lots of other people, we climbed up a steep path with lots of steps past some pagodas and a temple to an area with lots of monkeys.

We walked further up the mountain to another temple - what should have been a peaceful place was over run with Chinese tourists and their guides with loud microphones! After a nice lunch of wanton soup we walked back to Baoguo Monastery where we were staying. Clearly most people don't walk that far, and it was really nice and quiet walking amongst the bamboo and interesting wildlife, and visiting several monasteries with no other visitors.

Ate dinner in town, and whilst the food was nice, seeing them killing other people's dinner right next to us was a bit off putting... glad I was eating tofu!
