Mount Huashan, Huayin

(1,000+ reviews on the web)
Part of a chain of peaks towering above the surrounding landscape, Mount Huashan stands as one of the most sacred peaks in Taoism, Buddhism, and Chinese history. Pay a visit to the mountain and you'll find somewhat surreal views of razor-sharp ridges puncturing the sky, covered with hardy shrubs and trees. Follow the harrowing stone pathways and plank steps to cross these ridges, enjoying sweeping views along the way. You can even stop at several temples and shrines as you go. Keep in mind before visiting that the mountain features a number of hair-raising pathways; several involve essentially shimmying along a footboard with nothing but an iron chain between you and a drop of more than 1,524 m (5,000 ft). Carefully consider the risks of venturing off the more beaten paths atop the ridges, as they can be extremely dangerous. Using our custom trip planner, Huayin attractions like Mount Huashan can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • 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  more »
  • 最深刻的感觉,山路陡峭哇!!!!!去的那天正好上山的索道检修不能乘坐,所以真是从山脚爬到山顶的!上这些险路用了4个多小时!真不知道自己是怎么“爬”过来的!哈哈哈哈哈哈哈!冬天去的,因为一直在运动也不觉得冷,但给大家一个意见,一定要带双手套,抓锁链必需品,然后是带好干粮和水,上面确实没什么吃的哈!  more »
