Enjoy a full-day tour to Mount Huashan to see Buddhist and Taoist temples, walk through the mountains and admire the spectacular landscape of sheer cliffs with temples that cling to the rock. Depart Xi’an early to make the most of your day, then take a cable car to the summit of at Mount Huashan upon your arrival. Have free time to hike on your own, perhaps stopping at Gold Lock Pass to marvel at thousands of locks that dangle from along the trail fences. Includes transportation, hotel pickup and drop-off.

This is one of the most impressive temple complexes I have seen in China. One of the reasons it is my favorite is that it is usually mostly deserted. However, this is a seriously overlooked treasure. More people should go here because it is a vast and highly important complex of buildings which is beautifully preserved. As of The summer and fall of 2019 they are still in the moddle of a massive renovation, but it is going little by little, so there is always much to see. The stripped columns and roof beams are also quite beautiful and offer a glimpse into the construction of this complex. Many of the buildings are mostly original from the Ming dynasty. It is a must see site overall.

The grand Xiyue Temple is currently undergoing renovations thus there were less than 10 visitors on site. It is in dire need of proper maintenance. The compound is huge and the archways magnificent. The Xiyue Temple is dedicated to the God of Mount Huashan; you can use your entrance ticket for Mount Huashan to enter the Xiyue Temple. The Xiyue Temple is rich in culture and history, having started from West Han Dynasty, relocated to the present venue during the East Han Dynasty and survived the Sui, Tang, Ming and Qing Dynasties. Inside the fist temple hall, there is a huge mural painting of the Emperor, Empress and their entourage paying homage at this temple. Beautiful. I would have rated higher for this place if not for the renovations which gave one the unease feeling when walking around. Nevertheless, I hope for the temple to be restored to her glorious form soon.

My husband and I went there before our HST to Luoyang. The temple was grand.. a must see. Very few visitors and out of the few visitors there they did not go all the way past what appears to be the last building but is not continue pass that building which leads towards the stairs leading up to more of the temple the city wall to 5 peak towers outlook. Worth the visit.

离市区不远,清静,干净,古建保护不错,而且都是真货。了解历史,风光。 与高铁站相邻。非常值得一去。 附近的服务业水平较差,要有所准备。 Real stuff and great place to visit after Hua Mountain, especially for those who are in Chinese culture and history.
