Lishan Mountain is located at the south of Lintong Town, Xi'an City, Shaanxi Province. The pines and other vegetation on the mountain are exuberantly green.

Took a cable car up about 2/3 way of this Mt. Lishan and then walk up to Lishan Beacon. You can also hire a horse to go up to the Beacon instead of walking. I prefer to walk up because I can take in the surrounding scenery better and at my own pace. The view from the top of this Beacon cover the Huaqing Hot Spring, a panoramic view of the Lishan Mountain and the nearby towns. From a distance away, the Wei River looks very much like a white ribbon.

The beacon tower was build at the top of the mountain to give alarm of border attack in ancient times. It was constantly guard by special soldiers. Once the enemy pressed towards the border, the signal from the beacon tower was send whereby they lit up a fire. There is a story that happened here during the end of the Western Zhou Dynasty, that Emperor You loses his kingdom.

This Lishan Beacon is just one of the many landmarks on Mt. Lishan.
