A video travelogue about the scenic amenities of the Chinese South - Western province of Sichuan, highlighting beautiful, historical Buddhist Mountains and aboriginal minorities in the hidden " High - Cool Mountains " .

Mount Emeishan  is located near Leshan, Sichuan Province. It is one of the historically most important Chinese Buddhist Mountains, towering, beautiful, old and mysterious. Mt. Emei is like a huge green screen standing in the southwest of the Chengdu Plain.  It is the highest one among all the famous sight-seeing mountains in China. In Mt. Emei there are four scenic regions: Baoguo Temple, Wannian Temple, Qingyin Pavilion and Golden Summit. Its main peak, the Golden Summit, is 3079.3 meters (10,103 feet) above the sea level, seemingly reaching the sky. Standing on the top of it, one can enjoy the snowy mountains in the west and the vast plain in the east. The trees are verdant almost all the year round; the waterfalls are splendid; the whole scenery is beautiful and quiet. The landscape varies according to the seasons, the height of mountain and the climate. In 1996 Mt. Emei was enlisted in the world natural and cultural heritage by the UNESCO.
