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

We took both cable cars. I am 55 and my daughter is 26. My advice unless you are a super hiker is take the newer cable car ( unless you are afraid of heights, then you will actually pee in your terrified pants) and expect a stiff walk up to the peak. Not terrible. Just loads of stairs you can... More

I have to mount Hussain twice this year that's was spring and autumn. Different season has its own beauty. The most disappointed is the facilities of the toilet. We paid a high amount of entrance fees but there is no proper maintenance of the washrooms . Should be lmprove action should have to be taken. The peak is smell of... More

One of the five sacred mountains in China and the one with the steepest sides...'most precipitous one' in a mountain range. I'm 62 and of average fitness and just getting to the entrance was a challenge. Stunning huge gateway greets you then presents you with 'hundreds of steps' to get to the cable car. The day was mostly cloudy thank... More

it was mid-July and too hot for me and a friend to climb to what seemed like a breath taking view. So we chose the easier way which was cable cars. There were so many Chinese families there who did the same. The place was absolutely photogenic and the cable car journey with its many ups and downs and several... More

Did the 5 Huashan mountain peaks and loved every second of it. Starting from the Huashan town, we took a taxi to the gate of the park before setting off towards the North Peak. It took us 3 hours. We then continued to the East, Central, West and South peaks. The guide said it would take in total around 8... More

Don't come here expecting a tranquil experience. You will get great views but you'll have to fight for space with Chinese people. As my wife and I aren’t very unfit, we researched the easiest way to see the mountain. Whilst not cheap, it was relatively straight forward.    We had a driver from our hotel in Xi'an (we left at...

We took a day trip out of Xi'an to visit this interesting and historical mountain top area. Aside from it's famous Plank Walk section, it also provides stunning views and a unique climb that can only be found in China. There are numerous paths among the peaks that are essentially staircases biult into the mountain along the steep ridges. It... More
