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.

  • It was rainy or snowy the whole time I was on the mountain depending on the elevation. The only thing closed for safety in all of China was the plank walk on this mountain the day I visited. Due to th...  more »
  • If you go on a tour foreign tour will jam people go on because it doesn't operate like that. Morning 6:30 metro train at North Station. High speed rail in Kazan mountain North Station. From the station by complimentary shuttle bus to Kazan in the mountains, buying a bus ticket here. Switch from the Summit is not going to rise in the peak aerial tramway runs at fault with the bus to the gondola station. To buy a ticket to the Summit. As Toho and South peak from the Summit to return to Summit Summit Summit, going down by ropeway. From Kazan in the mountains was a course of Xi'an North railway station in Kazan mountain North Station, high speed rail shuttle by bus back. So 5:00 PM the last shuttle back to Kazan in the mountains so the time allocation is required. Shuttle bus stop is marked bus head on the peach blossom Tower. We recommend the high speed train in time in buses from the train station, but a little higher. Note admission charges and aerial tramway is a 65-year-old is now a little cheaper at a discount.

  • 淡季门票50,玉泉院有24小时售票点,23:00上山,2:15到北峰,之后在楼梯上找块避风的地方,睡到4点,到东峰观日台5:20,冬季温度低,一停下来就感觉身体热量迅速流失,不得不来回走动,日出前风大,最冷。七点日出,转遍五峰,下午13点左右出山。风景不错,华山以险著称,个人感觉一般,可能是因为自己知道有铁锁在旁边可以抓着吧。长空栈道没有想象中刺激(不知道是不是当时脑子有点懵)。爬华山体力消耗一般...  more »
