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

We didn't bother with a tour to Hua Shan as we hate guided tours but decided to take the bullet train from Xi'an early in the morning to Huashan and then up to the mountain. My advice - take the cable car to the WEST peak (which we thought had the best views anyway) and not the north as Lonely... More

Did a one day trip to Huashan in early July. Getting there was easy since you can take a bullet train (40mins) from Xian North station. Once you are at the Huashan station, just take a 10min taxi ride to the mountain foot. There, I bought the entrance ticket and a cable car ticket which brought me up to the... More

I climbed Mt Huashan from the Jade Springs temple entrance (¥180). It took us 5 hrs to get the the North Peak going at an good pace and stopping lots for photos. We then stayed at Wuyunfeng hostel (¥120 dorm) which is located past the north peak towards the east/south/west peaks (bit before the entrance to these peaks). We watched... More
