Going up Huashan is pretty long. It's a 2 hour ride from Xian to Mount Hua Shan tourist center. There's a 40 min bus ride you have to take from the tourist center to the entrance. From the entrance, you'll have to climb some stairs...More

With the sole purpose of our trip being “the world’s most dangerous hike”, we were pleasantly surprised by our little time in town too. The cable car & hike are well-described by others; suffice to say that as rock & ice climbers we were not...More

I did a daytrip to Huashan, and thought that it was well worth the effort. And it is an effort - from Xi'an, you take the train out to the town near the mountain and a bus or cab to the visitor center, a bus...More

Wow this place is a must do! It is quite expensive and coming from Xi’an it is definitely an effort but well worth it. We left very early and made it to the railway station and booked tickets for the 7:20 bullet train. The railway...More

The plank walk is definitely avoidable. In fact I think it is set up more for tourists. In the summertime (crowded weekend day) we couldn’t even get to the plank without a long line (no thanks!). I think the equipment was... More
