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...

One of the best days of my life. No westerners around at all, good strong hike to the top, and the plank walk was just insane. All ina good days work.

I've visited Hua Shan twice now. Once in April 2013 and once in October 2014. Both times I was amazed by the mountain views on offer. However, both times I was with 60-something aged folks. Beware, the steps up from the North peak cable car station to the other peaks is very difficult (or impossible) for even relatively fit older... More

My girlfriend and I recently went up Huashan mountain from Xi'an. We followed other people's suggestions and took the high speed train from Xi'an north train station. It was pretty straightforward getting there and back. Even though it was a cloudy day we got some glimpses of the sun and the views from the top were quite stunning. However, there... More
