Day 1 Mount Huashan Hiking

You will start your adventure hiking from Yuquan Temple. Walk about 20 minutes to the entrance of Mount Huashan. Then climb the stone stairs uphill to Huixin Rock. 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 leave North Peak for East Peak, which takes about 2~3 hours. On the route, you will visit the Heavenly Ladders, Riyue Cliff, Canglong Ling, Golden Lock Pass. Spend some time to views the breathtaking landscape on the East Peak.

Tips: Usually, travelers firstly transfer from Xian which is only 120km away from Mount Hua. You can take a train or use our private vehicle transfer. Some travelers also get to Mount Huashan from nearby city Luoyang by High Speed Train transfer. Only 1 hour is needed to transfer between Luoyang and Huashan. Kindly notice you that the accommodation on the mountain is basic. There are only several guesthouses which have no private bathrooms or hot water supply for bathing. You'd better get prepared for it.
