Detailed itinerary

Day 1 Mt.Hua

    06:30: Your local guide will meet you at your hotel lobby and together you will take a cab to the Xian North Train Station arriving by 7:20. You will take the high speed train (G6840, 07:59 - 08:35) to Mt. Hua. The journey takes about 30 minutes to Huashan North Train Station, from where you will take a local taxi and get to the foot of Mt. Huashan.

    09:10-15:00: You will admire the stunning views on Mt. Huashan. Located in Huayin City, 120km from Xian city, Mt. Hua is one of the five greatest mountains in China. With  the Qinling mountain in the south and the river Weihe in the north, Mt. Hua is the gate connecting central and northwestern China. Mt. Hua consists of five peaks, of which the South Peak, East Peak and West Peak are the major ones. Surrounding the major peaks are the 36 smaller peaks. Due to the unpredictable weather up there, the mountain displays itself in different views, sometimes cloudy like a paradise, sometimes rainy, sometimes foggy and sometimes covered with snow. Mt. Hua also has the perfect spot for watching the sun rise on the East Peak. Unless you have more than one day on Mt. Hua, sunrise watching is not recommended. There are about 210 small sights on the mountain, each bearing an incredible story. Last but not least, Mt. Hua is a sacred place for Taoism. There are currently 72 hanging caves and about 20 Taoist temples on the mountain, some of them are still in use by hermits. As a mountain bearing so much history and so many views, it has attracted many scholars. Since ancient times, many poets and writers have come here and left their travel notes on the stones. Even emperors like Qin Shi Huang in the Qin Dynasty, Emperor Wu in the Western Han Dynasty, Wu Zetian in the Zhou Dynasty and Emperor Xuanzong in the Tang Dynasty came to Mt. Hua to pray for a good harvest.

    15:40: Your guide will take you back to the Huashan North Train Station and take you back to Xian. Arriving at the Xian North Train Station, you will be free to explore alone or just go back to your hotel directly.

Good to know:

1. As our customer, your time is very valuable to us. We will never take you to any factories or shops for shopping.
2. What we provide are high-quality private tours, you will only be with your families or friends. There are no other people joining your tour.
3. Wheelchairs are available, but you are not recommended to take this tour if you are bringing someone on wheelchair.
4. Pregnant women and disabled people are not recommended to book this tour.
5. Anyone suffering from acrophobia is not recommended to book this trip.
6. The tour is changeable in case of unfavorable weather conditions.
7. There are generally two ways of visiting the Mt. Hua, the first way is actually climbing. This however is impractical on this trip. You only have 9 hours, while the single trip to all five peaks of the mountain requires about 7 hours provided that you are a strong mountaineer. This is not an option unless you have two days.
The other way is taking a cable car, and this is also the recommended option. On this itinerary, we will book a round-trip shuttle bus and cable car for the West Peak and give you about 1-1.5 hours to trek. This is also the most expensive way.
There are two other options. You can take a cable car to the North Peak first and then hike to the West Peak and take the downward cable car from there. Or, you can just take the North Peak cable car up and down, which can save you more energy from trekking.
8. Please do NOT reserve this trip during July and August when students are all free from school. Mt. Hua will be jammed with people and the hiking experience will be compromised. If you insist on visiting Mt. Hua in the Summer Vacation, we are not responsible for the extra hours needed for waiting in line for tickets.
10. This day tour lasts a bit longer than a usual day trip. Please be considerate and allow your guide to leave after your arrival in Xian.
11. Your lunch will be on the mountain, which can be challenging as there are limited food choices up there and the prices are quite high. We suggest you take some food up the mountain to keep you energized all the time.
12. Basic mountaineering equipment is available to you for free. You just need to carry it all the time.
