Mount Emei

Mount Emei, alternately Mount Omei, is a 3,099-meter-tall mountain in Sichuan Province, China, and is the highest of the Four Sacred Buddhist Mountains of China. Mount Emei sits at the western rim of the Sichuan Basin. The mountains west of it are known as Daxiangling.
A large surrounding area of countryside is geologically known as the Permian Emeishan Large Igneous Province, a large igneous province generated by the Emeishan Traps volcanic eruptions during the Permian Period.
Administratively, Mount Emei is located near the county-level city of the same name, which is in turn part of the prefecture-level city of Leshan. It was made a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1996.
