1 Day at Mt. Hueshan

I only have one day to visit and plan to get there very early to make the most of the day. What is the best route to Trek?

We are both very fit and experienced hikers.

My question isnt on how to get there.

I wont to know, since I only have 1 full day there, which I assume isnt enough time to walk on tracks. Which routes are best to take, which peaks are the 'must' to visit?

Jean-Pierre - thank you for that information. Now that they have harnesses and it wont be snowing when I go, I have every intention to walk the plank!

One full day for Huashan mountain,but you only have 3 or fours for hiking.Because take fast train or hire a driver,both take 2 hours on the way.So you can see 2 peaks(3peaks back Xi'an about 9pm).Cablecar take you to north peak,than you can see middle peak and west peak).Thanks beiping w

Hello:

Since you have one full day over there ( 8:30a.m-7:00p.m), you have enough time to climb up the mountain from the botton to the the top peaks,. it will you take you about 5-6 hours only for the single trip if you are in good body condition. You don't have to use the cabcar so that you an enjoy the mountain view well.

All the peaks are all must because each of them have different features.

Enjoy you stay in

I just had a look at the train timetable.

Since I am traveling form Luoyang to Xian. Maybe it is best if I travel Luoyang to Huashan and stay 1 night, visit Mt Huashan and then catch the last train to Xian at 20.05.

Then I am not wasting time doubling back and will not be pressed for time. I wont lose any time in Xian either.

Would you recommend I stay nearer to the train station or the Mountian entry Gate? Or is there somewhere nice you can recommend as a taxi doesnt cost very much?

Hello:

I recommend you to sue the hotel located as clsoer as the mountain hill so that you can save more time to enjoy the mounatin expecially the peak season because the some the local tourist group also keep the same plan like you stay over nignt and climb up the mountain at the early morning.

Enjoy you stay in

Hello:

I recommend you to use some the hotels ( they have lot) located as closer as the mountain, so that you can save more time to buy your tickets early to avoid the local tourist groups either you will hike or take the cablecar because many local tourist groups also keep the same plan like you, stay over night, climb up the mountain at the early morning if you choose the peak tourist season to travel in this area.

Enjoy you stay in
