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

HuaShan is a great day trip from Xi'an. The scenery is spectacular and supported by excellent infrastructure. From the bus park to the east at Xi'an railway station (on the right when you're facing the station, the same place the Terracotta Warriors buses leave from) there are buses that leave frequently from 6h30 onwards. It's a full day so it's... More

There are cable cars to get you partway up or down if you aren't up for the climb. Stayed at a place a little more than halfway from the top of the cableway to the east summit. Lots of the people walking by all night. The East summit was crowded at sunrise but worth the trip.

Excellent place for travelers who love hiking and doing some climbing. Magnificent view of the mountain on the peaks and also from the cable cars. It is rated a 5-star scenic view by tourism of China. You may read my experience at my blog at http://www.myinstalifestyle.blogspot.sg/2015/07/huashan.html#more

We traveled to mount Hua from Xi'An with the first train (07.53) that takes only 30 minutes. From the station, you can reach the tourist center with the bus nr. 1/2 (prepare to be surrounded by taxi drivers trying to rip you off). The tourist center had almost no queue and with student cards we've paid only half the price... More

We took the north cable car up and visited North, Central, and West peaks. We then took the west cable car down. This route involved quite a bit of climbing, some of it rather steep, but I never found it risky. It took us about 4 hours on a rather warm summer day. If you are not so fit or... More

Going up from the west and doing down from the eastern side of the maintain. Our focus is on the famous sky cliff Huashan Changkong and it WAS JUST SO AWESOME because we were like walking in the mist. The scene was very beautiful and sakura could be found on the way when we walked down. However, I don't quite... More

Hua Shan (mount Hua) is the third of China's 5 Sacred/Celestial mountains that I have ascended and I consider it more beautiful than the more popular Tai Shan-- Though Tai Shan in Shan Dong province is certainly worth seeing. There are Five peaks to hike and several attractions to see-- most notably the thrilling Plank Walk-- and one could easily... More
