If you are having a Xian package tour,our Xian travel guide will introduce you to see the Huashan Mountain,which is one of the Xian tourist attractions,thus giving you a complete sightseeing in Xian.
Situated in Huayin County, Mt. Huashan is some 120 kilometers (about 75 miles) east of Xian City in Shaanxi Province. This mountain is celebrated for its majestic breath-taking crags, steep paths, beautiful scenery and it is said to be the most precipitous mountain in the world.
Mt. Huashan is known as "The Number One Precipitous Mountain under Heaven". Situated about 100 kilometers east of the city of Xian, the mountain is one of China Five Sacred Taoist Mountains, and has a long history of religious significance. The mountain has five main peaks, of which the tallest is the South Peak at 2160 m. This peak also had a well-deserved reputation as having the World most dangerous hiking trail.
It is a common saying that "Mt. Huashan has only one path since ancient times". Only one narrow and zigzag path, 15 kilometers long and stretching from south to north, is available in Mt. Huashan.
This mountain is celebrated for its majestic breath-taking crags, steep paths, beautiful scenery and it is said to be the most precipitous mountain in the world.
For many years most people have taken a traditional but efficient walking-ascending and cable-car-descending route for this mountain climbing. By taking this route, visitors can experience not only its danger, but also the major meaningful scenic spots. At the foot of Mt. Huashan, you can start your trip by visiting the Jade Spring Temple. After that, you can walk to the Memorial Archway in about 15 min, and then in 5 min you will get to Five Dragon Bridge, next to which is the ticket office.
Passing through the ticket office, you will see the scenic spots one by one: walking about 30 min to Fish Stone -> 20 min to Five-Mile Pass -> 15 min to Stone Gate -> 10 min to Shaluo Terrace -> 10 min to Maonv Cave -> 10 min to Qingke Terrace -> 10 min to Mind Changing Stone (Huixin Stone) -> 10 min to Thousand-Foot Precipice -> 15 min to Hundred-Foot Crevice -> 15 min to Taoist Temple of A Group of Immortals -> 15 min to Laojun Furrow -> 10 min to Ear-Touching Cliff -> 5 min to Heavenward Ladder -> 5 min to Black Dragon Ridge -> 25 min to Golden Lock Pass -> 10 min to Five-Cloud Peak -> 15 min to Sunshine Welcoming Cave -> 5 min to East Peak.
Visiting the mountain by cable car is another good choice for visitors. On the east side of Yuquan Temple, there is an about 8 kilometer long (about 5 miles long) concrete road leading up to Wamiaogou where you can take a cable car directly to the North Peak. The top station is located on the east cliff of North Peak. The whole ride is more than 1,500 meters (about 4,921 feet) long and takes seven or eight minutes.
Please be aware in advance that it may require a long waiting for taking the cable car during China Summer Break (July 1st - Sept 15th).
