Lots of stairs! Even if you take the tram to the top of the mountain there are still plenty of stairs around everywhere. The food around is pretty good and it is everywhere. It was completely overcast the day we went so we couldn't see much but in the brief moments when it cleared it looked amazing. We didn't wait... More

Easy to get to on the fast train. after which a taxi ride is needed to the tourist center to purchase the entrance tickets. touts from train station will offer cheap taxi fares to the tourist center. Its here that annoying locals or the... More

I took a trip to Xi'an (20th -23th March) with my friends and colleagues. We rented a car and drove to Hua Mountain , Hua Yin on 22nd March. Hua Mountain tourist district is about 120km away from Xi'an . It will take about 1.5hrs on the motorway, but because of the road work and the diversion , it took... More

Is a great spot who likes mountains. You may use cable car to explore the mountain if you don't wish to use a lot of energy to climb the mountain. Remember to buy tickets at the authorised counters. Avoid to purchase it from strangers.

Mount Huashan is an incredible place. It takes a little effort to get there on your own, but that can be a fun experience. We did a little research in advance and were able to get there and back without any problems and without Chinese. We took the bullet train after taking the Xi'an Metro to the Xi'an North train...

Nothing is complete if you had been to Xi'an and Luoyang. This is by far one of the extraordinary place you need to see. You need at least a day to do this. 1. Climb all the way up by stairs (different level of difficulties and your stamina). Or 2. Take the cable car to midpoint, and climb up (conserve... More

It took me almost about 10 hours to reach the peak finally, setting up 10:00am at the foot of the mountain and reach the north peak by the time 7:30pm. I have to say this journey is exhausting, but somehow worth it by the glance of extremely majestive sceneries all the way, the simmering river down the mountain, the breath-taking... More

We did this as an easy day trip from Xian via bullet train at 8am and returned at 8pm. Unfortunately it was an incredibly smoggy day and our near inability to see the mountain from the base was depressing. At the top it was quite cloudy (even snow!) and we could not see very far. I know this place would... More

Go up the east way to the east peak and donw again the north peak, then you have a great trip to see all the 4 peaks. The view is fantastic and the trip is possible even if not too sporty. Take the cable wagon up and down and use your power to enjoy the view on the 4 peaks
