Huashan is a must if you are in Xi'an. The scenery is just stunning while the mountains represent a very iconic image of China. Although steep, the hike itself is not difficult. The trail has been paved with stairs so it's pretty easy to do. Huashan has something for every type of traveler. You can climb all the way up... More

My sister and I decided to leave Xi'an in the morning and do a short hike. We left Xi'an bei and arrived Huashanbei around 10.45 (30 min ride). We bought the ticket for entering the national park (180 rmb/person) and we had to decide whether we want to go to start at the east or west peak. [east peak =... More

I went to Mount Huashan a couple days ago. It was an amazing and very worthwhile day trip from Xian. Here are some tips I learned on that day that perhaps may be useful. Once you get to the visitor centre at the entrance, there are many different methods to experience the mountain each with different costs etc. The entrance... More

Nice place to visit. It took us about 8 hours to climb from North Peak to East Peak. This place is full of tourists from China. Best to climb Huashan early in the morning as less crowded.

I have visited Huashan with wife within a day trip from Xi'an, scaled the peaks in the order of West, South, East, Central and North peaks. I took the cable car up to the West peak and down by cable car from the North peak. This is the route I would recommend to others, since this route is less strenuous... More

Amazing, take your time appreciate the views, it's not cheap but worth it. Wear decent shoes, take the north gondola up, walk all the peaks and take the west gondola down. Fantastic

The mountains are beautiful and of great historic and cultural significance. Watching the families of Chinese tourists, some quite old, climb up and down the mountains, creates a great deal of respect for the people and their heritage. Some of the paths are notoriously scary and dangerous, but most of the paths are pretty comfortable. A wonderful experience.
