After breakfast, go to take a wonderful stroll on the Ancient City Wall, the largest and best-preserved ancient city wall in China. Enjoy panoramic views of modern Xian while you leisurely examine this well-maintained city wall which is 12 meters high and 18 meters wide with a total circuit of nearly 14 kilometers. Then drive about 40km to discover one of the greatest man-made wonders in the world – the Terracotta Warriors and Horses, built by the first emperor of China Qin Shihuang to protect him in his afterlife. Over 8,000 life-size warriors, horses and chariots, buried in 3 pits for more than 2,000 years until uncovered by a local farmer in 1974, form an ancient military army with complete battle units of infantry, cavalry, etc. Standing in front of these figures, one can’t help being amazed not only by the ambition of Emperor Qin Shihuang but also by the fabulous artistic skills of ancient Chinese artisans.
In the afternoon, leave Terracotta Warrior and drive about 1 hour to your hotel under the foot of Mount Huashan. The rest of the day is free for you to explore around.
Optional activities: 1). Take a relaxing cycling on the Ancient City Wall.

This section is easy with good road condition, which still has to take about 2 hours. From Huixin Rock, the real serious hiking starts. The stairs become narrow and steep. You must climb with fully concentration, and hold the iron chains tight. It takes about another 2 hours to get to the North Peak. Take a rest for sightseeing. Then you will hike about 3 hours from North Peak via Middle Peak to the South Peak to experience so called one of 10 most dangerous hiking trails in the world - the Plankroad in the Sky which is more than 100 meters long, 0.3 meters wide, and built along the surface of vertical cliffs. You need to costs 30 RMB to rent a safety belt before walking the plankroad. After that, hike about 1.5 hours to the West Peak to take the cableway down the Huashan.
Drive back to Xian City.
Tips: you can pack some favorite foods and drinks with you before starting your hiking because there is not much food you can buy and eat on the mountain.
