We went to Mount Huashan with a Chinese teacher who was on holidays and staying at the same hostel as us in Xi'an. We left our hostel at 6:15 a.m., took the first subway to the bullet train station. We had lots of time, but remember to take ID, preferably your passport, as we didn't and luckily our travelling companion... More

The mountain is amazing. But if you don't speak Chinese don't try to do it yourself - take a tour. Had trouble with transportation and figuring out which tickets to buy at the mountain. There were many ticket booths at the visitors center, and without any way to decipher the ticket purchas(s), we had to trust a man appearing to... More

Despite the fact that it was so far, that it took nearly 2 hours to get, it was an amazing experience. Travelling in a group, we took subway to North Xian Railway Station, and from there took the bullet train to Mount Hua station (which took around 35 min) compared to taking a 2 hour bus. From the station, took... More

Free bus to the mountain base. Little buses about 200m next to a little house, the bus on right ise express mountain bus. Number two I t... More

My friend and I took a bus from Xi'an Railway Station for 38rmb 1-way (60rmb for 2-ways). The buses are easily identifiable and leaves at 30-minutes interval. The journey took roughly 2 hours. We reached at the entrance at noon, pay the 100rmb fee (low season price) and start our ascend at around 1230pm. We reached the Northern peak at... More

Watch the weather report before you go, to make sure the cable cars are in service, or you can hike a gruesome several hours hike up to the top. These are steep mountains, so be prepared for this. On top you will find eateries (basic), some houses , small monastery and , of course, the plank walk.

I visited from Xi'an for a day. Once we were there the views were incredible. It was a bit misty, but still spectacular. The mountains were reasonably busy, but not to the point of being unpleasant. I think is definitely walking between all five peaks and the ridge between N and other peaks was a definite highlight. The S peak... More

From Xi'an we went by car to Mount Huashan and here is the trip. You arrive on a giant parking lot, already if the parking lot is full just go somewhere else, then you enter in the visitor center, a giant hall where there is nothing to see just a lot of cashier to pay the entry to the scenic...
