In previous travel notes, tour came to the night accommodation at the hotel in hillside near Qingyin Pavilion. Tour continued after a good rest and starts from a refreshing morning. Fanny got up early to Wugangling and purchased bus ticket to Leidongping. The bus took them through winding mountain roads. Scenery along the road looked picturesque in endless whiteness.

In fact, Emei Mountain is the Taoist rites for Samantabhadra Bodhisattva, who rided white elephant standing at the right side at Sakyamuni Buddha. Keeping walking, the world tallest four-faced Samantabhadra Bodhisattva figure was appeared in the thick fog. Here the Golden Summit was reached. The golden figure has 48 meters’ height, symbolizes 48 wishes of Amitabha. At the bottom of the figure, there are numerous small Buddha figures.
