my wife and I went to this mountain recently during our stay in Xian. We took the No 2 line of underground metro near our hotel to the BeiKe Station ( Xian North Station) at early morning and took the first G train departing at 7.52am to HuaSan north station. G means Gao in Mandarin, meaning high speed. The train... More

After hearing tales of an arduous and sometimes dangerous climb we decided to do as much or as little to suit our circumstances as a school group. The scenery was truly breathtaking and the ride in the cable car exciting for our students. Some of us stayed around the cable car station, whilst the more adventurous and energetic climbed a...

Mt. Huashan is known as called Mt.Taihuasha. From a distance the five peaks seem to form the shape of a FLOWER(HUA in chinese), hence the name "Hushan". It is famous for its natural vistas of steep and narrow paths,precipitous crags and a high mountain range. It is home to several influential taoistemples where emperors of past dyasties made pilgramages, making... More

We got there under the recommandation of one friend. We did know the place before coming thanks to a bunch of pictures posted on the internet. Huashan is considered as one of the most dangerous hike in the world. Lets say it is a little bit exaggerated even if some parts are quite tricky, and moreover we didn't have time... More

Quite expensive so make sure you get there early. We wen with a van since we were 9 people and it took 3 hours from Xi'an. We arrived around 11 at the entrance. After that you still have to buy tickets, take bus, buy cable car tickets, take the cable car. Maybe another hour before you get to the north... More

Highly recommend visiting Huashan if staying in Xi'an. It is now easy to get to on the high speed train/short taxi from the station. The cable car takes you most if the way up, but further walking on the mountain between the peaks is tough going and not for people with mobility or fitness issues. 'Dining' options are poor, take...

Lots of stairs! Even if you take the tram to the top of the mountain there are still plenty of stairs around everywhere. The food around is pretty good and it is everywhere. It was completely overcast the day we went so we couldn't see much but in the brief moments when it cleared it looked amazing. We didn't wait... More
