Basically this was the worst trip I've ever done. I'm sure with other conditions it could be nice, but we had an awfull time. We took the first train from Xi'an. Unfortunately that didn't help in anyway. We had to queue for a complete hour only to get the tickets. Queuing ment being pushed and shoved around and yelled at,... More

As mentioned in other reviews there were shuttle buses but the queues (or lack of an actual queue) with little idea when the next bus would turn up led us to... More

I am not going to say this is not a nice hike. It's just that it is not that much more exciting or beautiful than many other hikes all over the world and also not very much different from those. At the same time it offers many negative aspects: 1. It's VERY expensive. We walked up to North peak, from... More

This is a great place to visit if you are interested in great views and pleasant hiking. We took the West cable car in the morning and spent the day taking in breathless views up top. Well worth the visit if you are spending time in Xi'an.

This was a great hike and day activity. We took the cable car up to the West peak and this in and of itself was a great experience. I've been on a lot of gondolas and this one was very very impressive and if you are not good with heights, the North one (which we went down) was much less... More

The spectacular peaks are well worth a visit. We went on a private tour and went up the cable car to North Peak. The paths are cut into the rock and there are many steep sections. Take your time and plenty of water. We found the small temples to be quite charming. On a larger scale the views of steep... More

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
