I am a solo traveler, avid photographer and love hiking. After reading reviews from other Tripadvisors, I decided to start from the west peak. My experience is as follows: Took the subway line 2 to terminal North Railway Station. At the station, headed for South 2 exit. The ticketing office is on the left. Note you need your passport or...

If you add up the fees, fares and overnight stay at the top, visit of Huashan is quite expensive. Thousands of steps led us from the north to the southern peak, we admired the sunset and the sunrise. Fantastic views of the surrounding mountains and the valley. Note: On the mountain there is usually a large crowd of mostly Chinese... More

We arrived at Huashan at about 11.30am and climbed close to 4.5hrs just to reach the North Peak. Then it started to snow slightly and we have to make our way down by cable car as we didn't make any arrangement to stay overnight in the mountain. It's an awesome climb. But I'd suggest spending a night if you intend... More

I must admit this is the main purpose why i hiked ever weekend in Taiwan, just to conquer my fear of height since i was planning to visit Huashan. It was the wooden plan trail that attracted me more than anything. I reached the place from Xian by train and stayed overnight in one of the guest houses at the... More

One of the famous mountains in China that has breathtaking views. Many go here just for the daring plank, and so did we, but we found something even better. Avoid the plank (which is extremely crowded, and do the even more daring activity on the south peak. In order to get to the Chess Pavilion (pictured below) you must strap... More

The climbing of huashan is a very good workout. All the steps are well trodden and only stamina is needed. There are shops everywhere to quench your thirst and hunger. The only exciting part of this mountain is doing the plank walk and if you are game for another hikie, it will be hawk cliff ( quite costly).If you have... More

My son and I arrived in Huashan by taking the Bullet Train from Xian. As it was early in the afternoon, I decided to purchase tickets for Huashan at the Xiyue Temple. Taxi Fares in Huashan are usually 20 yuan. We reached the visitors center at 7am when it opened, and purchased bus tickets for the west peak. The cable... More
