Cuihua Mountain, Xi'an

4.5
#2 of 32 in Parks in Xi'an
Climb the heights of Cuihua Mountain and look out across the dramatic scenery of this national geo-park. Blanketed with a biodiverse landscape stretching 32 sq km (12.3 sq mi), the park divides itself into three main areas: a recreation zone, an ecological zone, and a forest zone. Take your pick of outdoor activities, walking ancient trade routes before taking to the water on a rented boat for an alternate view from the mountain's base. The highest peak reaches 2,704 m (8,543 ft) and tour guides are available to help you hike the area. Meanwhile, sightseeing buses offer tours of the lower terrain. Bring your own packed snacks. Use our Xi'an journey planner to arrange your visit to Cuihua Mountain and other attractions in Xi'an.

Where to stay in Xi'an

As in most Chinese cities, the least expensive places to stay in Xi'an concentrate around the main train station. To stay in a quieter and safer area, look for rooms in or near the city center, where you can choose between mid-range hotels and affordable youth hostels catering to backpackers and other travelers on a budget. Tourists with bargaining experience can usually get deeply discounted rooms through agents working the shuttle bus station at the airport. If you'd rather avoid dealing with touts, book your accommodations ahead.
