Mount Huashan, Huayin

(4.7/5 based on 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.

  • Xi'an North railway station to ride high on the volcano went to the box office in a taxi down to the Gard du Nord. Unfortunately, the weather was the cable car does not carry a bong in a relationship, and a cable car ride to the North went up the rod. 1 around North rods and window-Ryong decree for a couple of hours. The volcano on the cover of the sword played Bonnie hero reading memories the door works. If you look at the sheer Tor around the stunning, this landscape is wrong to admire. Take the cable car back down the North Bon, really only a portion of the volcano but had been well satisfied though.
