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

Be ready to pay norwegian prices to this chinese place but it's far worth it. From Xi'an take the bullet train which takes very little to arrive to the city then pick a taxi and be aware that there are 4 peaks (north south east west) so be aware of the logistic ad obviously the english of everyone (included the...

Like what you see in pictures, Huashan is beautiful! The views are not to be debated and once you are up there, every picture you take, will look postcard perfect. Hence it is definitely worth the visit to the mountain... I did the Huashan tour in 2 days. We climbed up the mountain from Yuquan Road, step by step... took... More

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
