Mount Huashan, Huayin

4.7
#1 of 97 in Parks in Shaanxi
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.

  • From XI ' an north station by high-speed rail 30 minutes to reach Huashan North Station, out of the station to go straight to about 30 meters on the right hand there are 1 and 2 free bus can reach the visitor center, the bus walk about 4 minutes to the ticket window. From the ticket hall to take the scenic bus about 15 minutes to the ropeway mouth, the winter to Huashan must do a good job of warmth, the mountain temperature is very low, steep, must pay attention to safety. When the summit to look down, the kind of a list of mountains small, and the sense of achievement arises spontaneously. Worth going to the sights and mountains.

Where to stay in Huayin

In the center of Huayin, to the south of the main train station, a good deal of standard hotels cater primarily to traveling businesspeople. A selection of guesthouses also offer comfortable rooms in the middle of the city, well linked-up with the mountain to the south. That said, many visitors choose to stay closer to Hua, in little Huashan Village, which offers guesthouses and simple hotels close to the main routes up the mountain.
