We went to Hua Shan in february, and while we were concerned about the weather being too cold, this was not the case at all. There were no clouds and climbing a billions of stairs in the sun really heats up your body. Getting there was -despite some negative reviews on TripAdvisor- a breeze. From Xi'an, take the metro to... More

I went to Mount Huashan by joining a group tour from Xian. I would also advise like some contributors in TripAdvisor saying not to attempt to go on your own especially if could not speak Chinese unless you had done enough homework on trip to Mt Huashan. There are all in Five Peaks namely the North, South, East, West and... More

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
