China Travel - last minute planning

I will be traveling to Beijing on business in May.

I plan to take 2-3 days off from work at the end of the trip and travel to Mt Huashan to hike the crazy trails there.

Do I need to make travel reservations in advance or can I make the reservations when I get to Beijing?

I might be interested in taking the overnight train from Beijing to Xi'an, then head to HuaShan first thing in the morning. Possibly spend 2 days in Huashan and hopefully stay at one of the hotels on the peaks. Then take the train back to Beijing from Xi'an overnight and fly back to NY.

Can I just book all the travel and hotels last minute once I get to Beijing?

For the overnight train, it is better to book ahead. For the train from Xi"'An to Huashan you can buy it on the spot. If you wish to stay on the mountain, better book ahead.
