Considered one of the steepest mountains to climb in China, MT Huashan is one of the reasons for me to travel to Xi'an. And I am not disappointed. MT Huashan is very accessible, about 30 minutes from Xi'an, via high-speed train (300KM/hr). There are two...More

Its spectacular. Pretty busy I hear, but we went in off season mid week and it was beautiful. Do some research and googling of the history before you go, not much english up the top.

Huashan Mountain is a must seeing place when visit Xi'an, it's not far from Xi'an. We used a private Huashan Mountain day trip by a local travel agency, guided by the tour guide, the trip was very easy to go.

I can't answer that question, try the Travelchinaguide. I used that on two trips to China, their staff is very helpful and quick to respond to your needs.
