Unfortunately shrouded in mist for most of our day at Huashan, but still a stunning day out. We got the tourist bus from Xi'an railway station - I will add advice that you try to get the real tourist bus, that takes you directly to the tourist entrance to HuaShan. We failed to find the correct time for the bus... More

Screw terracotta warriors, his is the real reason to come to shaanxi ( all tough if you want to visit the Army, you still should, just prioritise Huashan), or maybe even China! Huashan is fantastic, well developed and relatively safe. Walking from busdrop you first go to North peak, and then to the other peaks ( which are very close... More

This place is surreal, the views, the experience it's a challenge but will be a highlight to any trip. We decided to stay overnight so we could watch sunset and then sunrise so we arrived at Huashan from the bullet train (from Xi'an North) at about 1pm, we got the gondola from the North Peak which I'd recommend as there...

Mount Huashan is truly heaven on earth. A scenic beauty from below and above the clouds. Simply spectacular. It was raining lightly on & off when we did the hike. The view would have been different in other season. However, it didn't dampen our spirit, no doubt more treacherous on certain parts due to the slippery grounds. For active hikers,... More

We were in Xi’an recently and went to Hua Shan. It is amazingly beautiful! You are high in the clouds, the scenery is gorgeous; it is very clear to see why the Taoists would consider this a scared area. This was easily one of the most epic parts of our trip in all of China. Wear sturdy shoes and be... More

We hung around in Xi'an for an extra day or two to go up the mountain on a nice day and boy was it worth the wait. There are some spectacular views at the top of all 5 summits! It was a challenge to find info to work out the best way to scale the Mountain in a day but... More

We had a 4 day tour in Xi'an and had our guide include a trip outside the city to Mount Huashan. It took us an hour to get to the site and two hours to get back due to traffic problems. There are shops at the base where you buy your tickets, then you take a gondola to the top.... More

Hua Shan (literal meaning 'China Mountain') is one of China's five sacred Taoist peaks, and is a spectacular adventure, whether it's hiking up at night, hiking around the four peaks, staying overnight up there or doing the plank walk. I say be careful of the weather because when we were there in mid-August, the mist was thick and fast both... More

An absolute highlight of our trip. Really really amazing. We went mid-week and got the train from Xi'an Bei (North) arriving at Huashan Bei (North) around 4pm. Trains take between 30 minutes and 45 minutes depending on which one you get. We didn't book and didn't have any problems getting a train out or on the return but this is... More

Yes its busy. Go early. Avoid foggy or rainy wet days. Do the plank walk. Take the cable car up from the base to the West point and hike and explore from there. The views will blow you away. There are a lot of steps so using the cable car will save you time and energy for all the good... More
