The west cable car is a spectacular ride and gives great views of mountains. It ends at about a 30 minute walk not too strenuous hike from the West Peak. Be prepared for about a 30 minute bus trip to the cable station bus station and then about a 10 minute climb up stairs to the cable station.

After arriving by train in the afternoon, we took the free green bus to the visitors centre where we purchased out tickets. We then took the bus to the West Peak Cable Car. Wow this cable car is expensive and very much worth the price, we were blown away as we went up to the West Peak in the late... More

Primarily visited to do the Plank Walk in the Sky but ended up loving the entire hiking experience on the mountain. I went up via the west cable car which was worth the long wait in the queue and the fee!! Just awe inspiring. That takes you to the highest point. Afterwards it was a fairly easy hike around the...

We visited it as part of a day tour and sort of regret it because you could actually spend the whole day walking the tracks and trails. The views from some of the trails are just amazing, close your eyes and at some point you could think you were in the alps. We took the cable car option as we... More

Hiking is favourite hobby for Chinese and now this has began a mark of tourism to internationals. This mountain is said to be one of the highest peaks in China and have different north south east peaks with different routes of hiking which became simple to very hard even very dangerous at some points. We enjoyed over 6 hours of... More

Plan a whole day and expect to pay for transfer to Hua Shan, admission to the site, shuttle busses running to the cable cars and of course for the cable cars themselves. A hike up is not recommendable, since the way is not very interesting and also you will be dissappointed when you reach a crowded and well developed mountain... More

It is definitely worth the effort but be prepared for climbing even if you get the cable car. When you get off the cable car there is a walk up a steep set of stairs to a look out, which was about 10 minutes. From there you can get some amazing photos and continue on climbing if you feel up... More

I absolutely loved the views and the experience and did both the plank walk and the Chess pavilion. I would like to comment on accommodation though as I stayed overnight in the West Peak Hostel and was a bit anxious after reading reviews but was very pleasantly surprised. I stayed in one of the shared rooms and got a bed... More

Getting there is quite easy but once on the mountain a guide is recommended as the signage is a bit confusing. You can access the mountain by public transport with the HS rail from Xi'an North train station (last stop on the Line 1 metro). A return ticket costs 190CY. The best way to get to the ticket hall is... More

Amazing experience - can get quite tiring, I was okay but my girlfriend was tired. To get to the very very top (you always think your at the top but there tends to be other peaks that are higher) is quite time consuming. Buy a padlock near the bottom - the higher you go the more expensive they get -... More
