Cuihua Mountain, Xi'an

#2 of 32 in Parks in Xi'an
Waterfall Mountain
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.

  • This is where takes about an hour by bus from Xian. I think the place is like going on a hike in Xi'an, the Lake is surrounded by mountains in Central leafy. Was this time stopped during the move to the suburbs, but in China, clean air.

  • A spectacular mountain, a lot more than it seems on the information that is on the internet. It is not difficult to reach by public bus, and is very cheap, but need to know that for some reason some stop before arriving at a small station, and take another bus from the same line to follow to the same ticket office. A whole mountain dismantled in some cataclysmic earthquakes, and whose landslide closed the Valley creating the reservoir. The Park comprises a series of paths and stairways that meander between the huge blocks product of earthmoving, going through caves between blocks and formations quite spectacular. If you want to do the full tour, rises to the Summit of mountain by stairs which at times are rather durillas, and can be downloaded on the other hand until the door out, being surrounded at all times by spectacular views of the mountains. It can be without cansanse too if you arrive early and take calmly. It is possible to reach reservoir and the base of the Park by car or bus in summer, or it can be giving a smooth ride of an hour more or less. As a curiosity, it is very shocking that there is wifi in the middle of the mountain, and if you like geology, this is a paradise.

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.
