Hello. Most Huashan reviews on TripAdvisor will tell you the mountain is totally worth visiting so I'll dispense with all that. I think it is more important I share survival tips with those who are not Stairmaster heros. I visited Huashan under these circumstances: - Peak of Chinese summer in Xi'an (47 degree Celsius or 116 degree Fahrenheit) - Second... More

We didn't bother with a tour to Hua Shan as we hate guided tours but decided to take the bullet train from Xi'an early in the morning to Huashan and then up to the mountain. My advice - take the cable car to the WEST peak (which we thought had the best views anyway) and not the north as Lonely... More

Did a one day trip to Huashan in early July. Getting there was easy since you can take a bullet train (40mins) from Xian North station. Once you are at the Huashan station, just take a 10min taxi ride to the mountain foot. There, I bought the entrance ticket and a cable car ticket which brought me up to the... More

I climbed Mt Huashan from the Jade Springs temple entrance (¥180). It took us 5 hrs to get the the North Peak going at an good pace and stopping lots for photos. We then stayed at Wuyunfeng hostel (¥120 dorm) which is located past the north peak towards the east/south/west peaks (bit before the entrance to these peaks). We watched... More

Xian is, hands down, the most polluted city I have ever been to. In 4 days there, the smog only cleared for one day, after an evening of extremely strong winds. Unfortunately, this was not the day we went to Huashan. On our day at Huashan, it was almost like whiteout: we could see a vague outline of mountains in... More

Hats off to all the intrepid reviewers. But worn out at the end of a month-long, mostly guided China trip, we enjoyed Hua Shan the easy way. The new West Peak cable car line is definitely an E-ticket ride, about 10 minutes long ending in an almost vertical climb up a sheer rock wall below the peak. The hike to... More

We did a day trip to Hua Shan from Xi'an just a few days ago. It was definitely the highlight of our China trip this year. Here's our logistics for reference: 1. Bus to HuaShan from Xi'an Train station (RMB22), they leave when the bus is full. The bus ride is a little less than 2 hours, definitely plan a... More

So, you saw something online about the Hua Shan plank trail, and now it's on your bucket list? This is where I started: http://www.viralnova.com/dangerous-trail-huashan/ Except that the Viral Nova write up is a bit misleading. Clearly the author has never set foot on the mountain, as the descriptions leave a little to be desired and the descriptions are not accurate... More

It is only a couple of foreigner on the mountain, but a lot of Chinese. It seems that to climb up from the bottom and see sunrise (leaving midnight) is a challange for youngsters from the region. Everybody done it whom we met once in their life. As we did not have enough time (or the condition, more than 7000... More

I've walked up Huashan twice now, in 2011 and in 2013, and both times were so good, so memorable and inspiring, that I am planning another as soon as possible. One of China's 5 sacred mountains it's vast panoramas of vertical granite and precipitous drops make an almost otherworldly experience in hiking. But then, you'd expect nothing more from the... More
