Mountain Ruin
Visit Lishan National Forest Park and enjoy the panoramic views from an altitude of 1,302 m (4,272 ft). From afar, the mountain resembles a black horse due to its year-round cover of dark pines and cypresses. Take a cable-car ride about two thirds of the way to the top, and then walk or rent a horse to complete your ascent. At the summit, you'll see a temple with a view of the city below.

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.
