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

Once you are up there, the view is breathtaking and a must visit place in Xian. I would suggest to go during off-peak season to avoid the crowd.

We went after a slightly disappointing time at Huangshan where fog obscured views for most of the day. In contrast, at Huashan it was sunny all day. We caught the train from Xi'an and took a taxi to the West gondola. We couldn't believe the amazing gondola trip - it doesn't just go to a mountain top - it goes... More

We took the gondola to the north peak. This part of the mountain does not have any of the classic Mt Huashan attractions. With a limited amount of time, we decided to hike/jog quickly to some of the more interesting locations on the mountain. In about two and a half hours we were able to hike from the north peak...

Memorable experience. Try to visit during autumn when maple leaves turn red. There are some hotels in the hills, you have to ask smn in China to arrange sleepover there as they are not on booking. However you can do it once you've reached Huashan city (also there many unlisted hotels and locals renting rooms). We went in June, a... More

I would say it's one of the costliest place to visit compared to other place in China. If you are not thinking of staying overnight up there in the mountain, don't ever consider hiking up. The scenic spots up in the mountains are spectacular. I won't post how I made through the trip because I will be putting it in... More

A MUST-SEE OFFERED BY AMAZING CHINA! Like many other national parks or scenic attractions in China, the area takes quite a bit exploration and navigation. The 'easiest' way to do this is by taking cable cars up and down (but don't be fooled, it is still a 5-hour hike on the top). To get to the cable cars, you will... More

Huashan is the number one precipitous mountain in China. You can opt to climb up to the North Peak [some 5,000 ft above sea level) by foot which will take you some 4 hours or take the cable car which will take some 15 minutes. We opted for the cable car. After purchasing our admission tickets, we were ferried by... More

The mountain was very interesting but the town below was too polluted. The government should really take care of this historic place.

So, i did it with a friend, starting at 00:30 to see the sunrise (entrance 180 rmb/90 for students) . Due to our schedule, we had to do it on Sunday - *WARM TIP* do it on the mid-week, otherwise it would be overly crowded. Yes even at 00:30. Anyway, we kinda did it in a killer pace, reaching the...
