I took the train from Xi'an about 8 am and a taxi (20 Yuan) from Huashan station to Yuquan Yuan (Jade Spring Temple) where the trail started. Then I started walking and payed the discounted student fee of 50 Yuan to access the mountain. I spent about 2 hours at a steady pace to get all the way up to... More

26/01/2016 As said was awake anyway at 0400. Made my way to Xian North Railways Station to take a bullet train to Huashanbei around 180 kms away ( Shame on those in the EU who don't have more or less a TGV as it took only 40mns with one stop between. 😱) From the station it is a 15 mins... More

Accessible by cable car up the north or west peak, Mount Huashan is easy to climb and walk around as it is covered with steps cut into the mountain on the trails that we went to. We were informed that the west peak hike to the south peak where you can view the "most dangerous hike in the world" is... More

An absolutely mind blowing place! You can see that from the photos so no need to rave about how cool it was. Here's the important details: You will need about 700RMB each to do this - cash only. Entry to the park - 180RMB Bus to the cable car - 60RMB Cable car to the top peak - 160RMB (If... More

I'll be honest, I didn't have high expectations coming here. Having traveled around China extensively, I've come to the realization that a lot of nature in China is overhyped. I even kind of thought "myeh" when I first started hiking from North Peak. However, when I got to the South and West Peak I was blown away. I was not... More

This has been on our radar for years! We took the bullet train from Xi'an(52rmb) at 0730, took a cab from the Huayin rail station to the Huashan "visitor center". We bought our ticket(100rmb per person) booked a bus to the north cablecar(20rmb). Bought a cablecar ticket(70rmb) and finally arrived on the mountain. Sounds like a lot of messing about,... More

We stayed in the city centre of Xi'an, and took a local bus to the national park of Mt Huashan. Bus left from main train station in Xi'an, was around 35 Yuan for one way and took about 2hrs to get to the park. We got dropped off at the foot of the mountain, near the entrance of the park.... More

This was probably one of the highlights of our trip to China. We caught local buses from Xi'an and joined the queue to buy tickets. Yep, you have to pay to climb mount Hua. However it's well worth it. The climb is long and pretty strenuous, especially in 40*C, but the views are amazing. The steps are the most memorable... More

Incredible views, very poor accommodation on top of the mountain, way too crowded for the sunrise. Dont underestimate the hike up from the village, if you dont take a cable car, it was a looot of steps.

Climbed this mountain as the part of my 5 Great Mountains Journey and climbed from the bottom from the morning and returned to Xian in the Evening. Expect the climb to be strenuous exercise if you are going to the top by climbing the steps since you will spend around 5 Hours for this effort. Some of the mountain steps... More
