Only 30min away from Xi'an on the bullet train makes it a must do when in the area! The mild effort to reach the peaks is well rewarded with epic vistas of the surrounding mountain range. Well above the clouds with clean air and beautiful...More

If you are a hiker this is a must. The mountain range is unlike any range I have seen before. The geological upthrust is insane. White granit that shoots up nearly vertical creating rock faces that are stunning. The hiking is this area is nearly...More

It was my second time to Huashan in Oct 2018 after my first trip in 2003. Right now, there was two cable car systems to north and west peak respectively. Nevertheless, price was much higher because visitors should take bus and then cable car from...More

We started to climb around 8.00 from the bottom of the north cable car. We reached north peak at 9.45 which was very rewarding, i feel the cable cars are the cancer of the mountain. Then continued to east peak, middle peak and then the...More

Recommend for people who do not exercise that much to go up from west mount and down from south mount, it will save you alot of energy! Remember to bring water and food or else expect to pay triple the price uphill

Hi, From my personal experience, it is quite a long climb from the cable car to the peak ( lots of steps uphill). Unless the elderly are quite fit, they may have a problem. Also, you are carrying a 3-year old child, who... More

Getting to Huashan is as easy as boarding a train from Xian. I did not use a mountain guide as the trek is pretty straightforward with direction signs all around. I just based my research off globemad and tenacioustrekkers... More

Hi :) I am gonna visit Huashan on September 17th/18th 2018 and I would like to stay overnight at the top. I have found out that there are some hotels/shelters up there, but it seems that they can not be booked in advance. However I found two hotels on AGODA and TRIP websites which are: - Five Cloud Peak Hotel - Yuntai Mountain Villa but none of them can be booked - it seems like there are no beds in dorms left. Someone has also mentioned a shelter with cheap dorms somewhere near Qunxian temple and a hotel at the West Peak as well as one at the East Peak. But what my question is - do you know what is availability usually like? I am coming there with group of 9 people. I am afraid that when we arrive on top we will not be able to find any accommodation and we will be forced to hike down at night. Does anybody know if there is any other way to make sure that we can get our beds in any of these hotels/shelters (preferably dorms because they're cheaper) when we arrive there? Thanks!
