Mt. Huashan Adventure from Xi'an

At 8:00am, your personal English-speaking tour guide, car and driver will pick you up from your hotel in central Xi’an, and transfer to Mt. Huashan. The ride takes about 2 hours before you reach its foot. Take cable car up the North Peak, at a height of 1614 meters. Precipitous cliffs on all sides make it look like a flat terrace in the clouds, thus its other name Cloud Terrace Peak. 

Challenge yourself to a trek up the mountain to take in breathtaking views. You can enjoy exploring the other four peaks: East Peak, Middle Peak, and if further West Peak and South Peak. Along the way let the magnificent mountain scenery feast your eyes, with temples, pines, sculptures and engravings. Your tour guide will accompany you throughout the tour, sharing insider tips such as directions, history, stories, best angles and the best sights at the right time. 

The hike on the mountain takes 4-5 hours at your pace. Afterwards, take cable car down the mountain from West Peak, or get back to North Peak and take the cable car down, and transfer back to your hotel in central Xi’an.
