The mountain is beautiful in a very non-conventional way. Easy hike to the North Peak and had splendid views all around. A must visit.

Great view on the cable car. You really get to see how steep this giant piece of rock is. Be very careful if you go in the winter. Avoid the icey surface or you risk falling all the way down! Highly recommended for people who like hiking, or simply for some excitment.

It's a little bit pricey but worth it...well all the mountains in China has entrance fees. It's ¥100 entrance fees+¥40 shuttle bus to the cable car mountain+¥80 return cable car from North peak(cheapest way, from the West peak is ¥120 one way!!) You also need to take the local bus right outside the Huashan train station to the entrance of... More

As a hiker, Huashan was a nice challenge full of steep steps and dangerous passes. The fog got in the way of the surrounding views but i still enjoyed it. Once i reached the North Peak, there were a lot of tourists (who came up via cable cars) as this was during peak season. There were even some pretty girls... More

I was travelling solo in the end of November (27-29), staying in town for two nights. It is a very low season already, very few non-Chinese travelers. Weather is quite chilly, winds are cold, some snow in the mountains. GET THERE Easy way is to take a bullet train from Xian, it departs from Xian North Railway station and there... More

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 the weather I couldn't see any of the views at all, but I did see a few pictures on places... More

It's a tiring journey as you have to keep on climb, and it was very cold; but the view on the peak is wonderful. From West peak we climbed to the south peak first as the track is easier, the you can go to the east peak ( for us, we didn't go to the east as time limitation), and... More

We got really lucky with weather, the days before us were really cold and miserable and I hear haze can be an issue. The mountain itself has 5 peaks and there are two cable cars up, one to the north peak and the other to the west peak. The west peak is higher so you can go up the west... More

5 stars to myself for reaching all 5 peaks! *LOL* I was quite apprehensive about climbing another mountain in China after doing Huangshan almost 10 years' ago; it didn't help knowing that Huashan is deemed the most dangerous in China! After much read-ups and planning, I decided to go ahead with the challenge; knowing well that I could have a... More
