I will add a little more detail to other reviews. I left Nanshomem at 745am and was back there at 330.. I went on mid Autumn festival day and it was fine. Get out of the metro station Weiqu'nan at gate D.. And walk north - turn right at the first cross roads and the 905 bus stop is a... More

When we visited Xi'an, we know Qingling is a good place to go for some fun in the mother nature. My friend recommend Cuihua Mountain to us and he said it's really nice there, since qingling doesn't have the lake/big river. It took us about 2.5 hours to get there and it was almost noon time. Don't forget to pack... More

We made our way on the 905 and got to the mountain at 11h30. This did not give us enough time to get to the top of the mountain. And at around 5pm we had to turn around. If you are not at the ski resort by around 12 you probably won't be able to go all the way up.... More

We decided to visit Cuihua Mountain over Hua Mountain, after considering the price difference (total expenses) and general crowd (seeing it is peak season). If you are keen to do a one-day hike in Xi'an during peak season and want to avoid a crowded nature park, head to Cuihua Mountain. Closer to Xi'an city centre and easily accessible by bus.... More

We took a trip to the mountains. And enjoyed every minute of it. It is hard to get to if you don't drive. The scenery is beautiful and the air clean. There are many small restaurants to choose from. As with all restaurants in China look for a busy one! We enjoyed walking around the lake. It was an easy... More

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.

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
