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.

    Hua Shan mountain are all 5 ft with baskets, west coast, and north west coast prices, which are higher, because of the long distances than us west coast – and it's a north side, which must walk approximately 3 hours because it pretty much is tired.

    Very nice place and very popular with tourists. Better come early in the morning, don't have to wait in line on the stairs, you can make photo without strangers and will not so hot. Near the city there is a very beautiful park with small pagodas. Tudja definitely worth a peek. In each pagoda your monk who specializes in calligraphy or divinations. The mountain itself has 4 peak, with each offer their own unique view of the mountains and the Valley. To bypass all vertices in a fast pace, given the ascent and descent on the ropeway will take about 4-5 hours. But it's better to come for the whole day to enjoy this wonderful place

    Six months ago, actually already recommended chawa Shan type near Xi'an (huashan) but arrived there yesterday again and must add that even if you're not in top shape and aren't afraid of a little effort to get to those climbers from the mountain to the Summit can contact me with questions, but here's a little present information the easy way. The ACE rapid buses and mountain region and are from 23:00 6:30 am to consider the train/bus to mount another bus and he has stops at 19:00 anyone who thinks staying later on the mountain, take a cab back to the train station or sleep on the mountain. Outside the train station parking lot where Shan he would try to unite all kinds of crooks, don't get anybody into a cab that just a 3 minutes walk away there are green buses traveling to the bottom of the mountain, all 20. When reaching the entrance of paying for a ticket and drive one of the gondola's pavilions (East or West) and a huge map so you can decide before you buy the ticket. My recommendation is to take the cable car to the West side (140 Yuan per student or 126) and walk up the eastern seaboard that is cheaper and get him back. The breathtaking views and it is a day trip to Xian requires say eight hours out of Xian and then back to it for those who do not climb on foot. If anyone needs advice or help, and fun!

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.
