Mount Hua Tour

Mount Hua is a mountain located near the city of Huayin in Shaanxi province, about 120 kilometres (75 mi) east of Xi’an. It is the western mountain of the Five Great Mountains of China, and has a long history of religious significance. Originally classified as having three peaks, in modern times the mountain is classified as five main peaks, of which the highest is the South Peak at 2,154.9 metres (7,070 ft).

Mount HuaShan Summits
Traditionally, only the giant plateau with its summits to the south of the peak Wuyun Feng (五雲峰, Five Cloud Summit) was called Taihua Shan (太華山, Great Flower Mountain). It could only be accessed through the ridge known as Canglong Ling (蒼龍嶺, Dark Dragon Ridge) until a second trail was built in the 1980s to go around Canglong Ling. Three peaks were identified with respective summits: the East, South, and West peaks.

The East peak consists of four summits. The highest summit is Zhaoyang Feng (朝陽峰, Facing Yang Summit, i.e. the summit facing the sun). Its elevation is reported to be 2,096 m (6,877 ft) and its name is often used as the name for the whole East Peak. To the east of Zhaoyang Feng is Shilou Feng (石樓峰, Stone Tower Summit), to the south is Botai Feng (博臺峰, Broad Terrace Summit) and to the west is Yunű Feng (玉女峰, Jade Maiden Summit). Today, Yunű Feng considered its own peak, most central on the mountain.

The South peak consists of three summits. The highest summit is Luoyan Feng (落雁峰, Landing Goose Summit), with an elevation of 2,154 m (7,067 ft). To the east is Songgui Feng (松檜峰, Pines and Junipers Summit), and to the west is Xiaozi Feng (孝子峰, Filial Son Summit).

The West peak has only one summit and it is known as Lianhua Feng (蓮花峰) or Furong Feng (芙蓉峰), both meaning Lotus Flower Summit. The elevation is 2,082 m (6,831 ft).

With the development of new trail to Hua Shan in the 3rd through 5th century along the Hua Shan Gorge, the peak immediately to the north of Canglong Ling, Yuntai Feng (雲臺峰, Cloud Terrace Peak), was identified as the North peak. It is the lowest of the five peaks with an elevation of 1,614.9 m (5,298 ft).

by bus
By Bus
Take a regular tourist bus from the east square of Xian Railway Station to the Jade Spring Temple at the foot of the Huashan Mountain. It operates between 06:00 and 19:00. The one-way ticket costs CNY 38 and round-trip ticket costs CNY 70. A single trip takes two hours or so.

*Take subway line 1 to Xian Fangzhicheng Bus Station and take a bus to Huayin. The bus runs every 30 minutes between 07:45 and 19:00. The bus ticket costs CNY 37.5 and a single trip takes about 2 hours.

Starting Place:XiAn Train Station East Square(西安火车站东广场)map
Note: Tourism Bus Line 1 from the east square of Xian Railway Station to the mountain is out of service at present.
大巴到达华山大概也是1.5小时左右。我建议去程坐火车,返程坐大巴。去程经历比较旺盛可以比较方便地转出,而返程因为爬完华山估计已经全身没力了,景区有车可以直接送到华阴汽车站(华山附近汽车站),在那里可以直接搭乘大巴返回西安。这种方式是大部分人爬完山后的选择,价格是35元/人

by train
By High Speed Train
1. There are high speed trains running from Xian North Railway Station to Huashan North Station, taking 30 – 40 minutes. After arrival, take the free minibuses in green outside the station to the mountain.

2. A normal train from Xian Railway Station to Huashan Station takes 1.5-2 hours. After arrival, take bus 608 to Baoliandeng Square, aka Huashan Shengtai Square, which is near the entrance of the mountain..
西安到达华山最方便的就是火车或者高铁。华山下面有两个站,一个是华山北站一个是华山站。华山站是火车到达的,华山北则是高铁到达的。火车到达需要1.5小时,价格才20元,而且华山站一下站还有中巴可以直接到华山底下。而华山北站虽然时间仅仅30分钟,但是因为离华山脚下远,如果从华山北站到华山脚下的时间其实跟坐火车差不多。

*How to get back to Xian:
Take a taxi from Dongshanmen Parking Lot to Huashan North Station with a cost of about CNY 25, and then take high speed trains back to Xian.
There are many tourist buses from the Jade Spring Temple to the east square of Xian Railway Station and just leave when a bus is full. The ticket fare is CNY 38.
