Start your tour from early morning around 7:00am, and then enjoy the Chinese countryside during the two hour drive. Once you arrive at the Hua mountain ticket center, your guide will show you the hiking route options on the map, and then you will decide which way to go. There is a 20~30 minute shuttle bus journey to West Peak or North Peak Cable Car station based on your hiking route.
Four hiking route options with varied levels of difficulty (all cable car costs & shuttle bus costs are on your own):
Option A: 1~1.5 hours easy hiking: Spend 20 minutes on West Peak cable car and ride up to the West Peak mountain station. Hike for about 30 minutes up to the West Peak summit. Return downhill to the West Peak mountain station, and take cable car back to West Peak bottom.
Option B: 4~5 hours passion hiking: Spend 20 minutes on West Peak cable car ride up to the West peak mountain station. Hike for about 30 minutes up to the West Peak summit. Then hike in a counterclockwise direction for about 1 hour to the South Peak. After another 1~1.5 hours of hiking, you will reach the East Peak. A further 1.5~ 2 hours of hiking, you will pass by the Middle Peak and return to the West Peak. You will take the West Peak cable car down to the bottom.
Option C: 2.5 hours downhill hiking: Take the West Peak cable car up, and hike about 2.5 hours downhill to the North Peak cable car station. Take North Peak cable car down to mountain bottom.
Option D: 3.5 hours uphill hiking: Take the North Peak cable car up, and hike 3.5 hours uphill to the West Peak Cable car station. Take West Peak cable car down to mountain bottom.
Getting lost is not a problem, because all the trails are well marked in both Chinese and English.
