Amazing views, but the stairs can be tiring. Also, watch out, the stairs are not all even, so beware of your footing, as you walk.

Way to do it on a day trip from Xian: On Xian Metro to Sanyao Zhan; then bus 905 (southbound) all the way to the base of the mountain. However, bus 905 doesn't go all the way up to the mountain gate where you start your trek; alert the conductor on the bus with a note resembling mine, unless you... More

getting there is rather complicated, metro to the very south the walk up north for 5 minutes and take bus 905 until the end. Entry fee is 55 RMB for students. Maps are not clear at all, it is easy to get a bit lost between the different caves but you'll eventually find your way since everything is paved. Not... More

Route is around 3~3,5miles and last around 20minutes.... But its really fun. so... More

Cuihua Mountain is part of Zhongnan Mountain, which has a great influence in the Chinese history. Three highlights of it: 1. You can tell the impact of a very heavy earthquake 3000 years ago in the Zhou dynasty. The huge rocks and the 'sky lake' in the middle of the mountain were all the result of the earthquake. 2. This... More

As in other reviews, it is easy to get there via the 905 bus from the Sky Tower Metro stop, 4rmb. At the moment the bus does not go all the way to the park gate, don't think you can walk up, it is a long way so you need to get a ride on one of the 3 wheelers... More

I have to say Cuihua Mountain really worth a visit. Buses from the city around Dayan pagoda about 2 hours ride. the scenary there is breath-taking, marvelous, especially the dense woods, it will fill your eyes with green and your lung with fresh air. And there is more geographical resorts, like the icy rock on the top of the moutain,... More

Follow the instructions from the comments below. Line 2 south to the end, then bus 905-no problems. If you're not on a backpacker's budget i would suggest a guide-tour instead. Its kind of hard to find your way around and the map is not easy to follow. When we were here we were basically all alone in the park. If... More
