We spent 1 night at a hotel at the bottom, hiked to the top the next morning, and left by train at the end of the day. Should have stayed 2 nights at the bottom as were were rushed to get back down in time to leave. If you're short on time, take the gondola to the North Peak and... More

The view is absolutely breath-taking, with perfect weather! My family decided to visit HuaShan as part of our Xi'An trip during end of April. We took the bullet train from Xi'An which only took us about 30min to reach there. After that we took the cable car to go up to West Peak and walk to South Peak; from South... More

Every peak has its own cable car line, hotel and restaurant. Expect a lot of crowd, so it's not really a place where you can have a quiet getaway. I also didn't see a lot of animals, maybe they avoid human contacts. The hotels have a lot of room choices, from shared room of 20 beds (95 yuan) to private... More

After reading quite some reviews about Mt. Huashan, we were a bit intimidated both by the mountain as well as the expected crowds there. Fortunately, we decided to find out by ourselves. So we went there on 27.04.2015, a gorgeous Monday 4 days before the May holiday. Having a Chinese drivers license, I rented a car in Xi'an and we... More

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
