Know More about this tour

Your English-speaking tour guide and driver will pick you up from your hotel in Xi'an at 8:30am and arrive to the mountain around 10:30am. First, take a shuttle bus and then a cable car to the North Peak or West Peak which is up to you own interest and physical condition. Afterwards, you will really get to the mountain top to start the exciting hiking. Your guide will provide detailed information in advance and you will enjoy your own hiking time. When you finish all the peaks (or if you just want to take some pictures and appreciate the awesome scenery but not do much hiking, it's totally fine), you will go to the appointed peak to meet guide and take the cable car and shuttle bus together to go to the mountain top.

There are 3 different routes to go through those peaks of Mt. Huashan, you can freely choose based on your own expectation and physical condition. Just tell our guide which option you prefer and he/she will help you to buy admission tickets. Here are instructions of the 3 routes:
Route A: Cable car ascend to/descend from North Peak
-- The cheapest option but require a good physical stamina if you want to cover all peaks.
Route B: Cable car ascend to/descend from West Peak
-- The most expensive option as cable car from/to West Peak covering longest distance to allow you the minimum walking. Also, it has the best views at the West Peak.
Route C: Cable car ascend to West Peak, descend from North peak by cable car   
-- A nice option if you are not that full of energy but still want to cover all peaks (with medium cost and hiking).

Along the way of hiking, you will have chance to encounter those famous seeing points. You will visit some Buddhist and Taoist temples, sculptures and engravings on the peaks. When you pass the Gold Lock Pass, you can buy a golden lock and lock it on the iron chains at the Gold Lock Pass which should bring you safety and health. Imagine the marvelous scenery of thousands of golden locks on the iron chains. On the Middle Peak (Jade Maiden Peak), you can experience its special atmosphere in person especially the amazing sunset if weather permits. You will also have opportunity to experience those steep stairs.

After the adventure, meet your guide at the appointed peaks (West Peak or North Peak) and go to mountain foot together. Around 5pm the driver will wait for you at the exit gate of mountain and then transfer you back to your hotel in Xi'an downtown.

1. Private transfer and tour guide is covered in this tour while the admission fee need you to pay on spot according to your interest.

    It was a very rigorous hike but worth every excruciating moment. I would recommend any traveler to the Shaanxi region to visit this amazing place. One thing I will say is that I expected a more guided tour but walking the mountain solo allowed me to meet some great people and even created a friendship that will last far beyond the hike. Be prepared to walk atleast 10 kilometers if you want to see all the main peaks. I didn't even get the chance to view the middle peak so to view all the peaks must be atleast a 12-13 kilometer hike so be prepared for this. I wasn't physically prepared so my calves are still burning but it was worth it. Also definitely place a lock on the mountain where no one else has placed one because it gives a sense of connection to the mountain.

    My partner and I had a blast on this tour! We booked at the last minute for the next day but they were great. They returned emails within 10-15 minutes and when I called them via Skype from our Xi'an hotel, their English was easily understandable. We wanted a day of being catered to and that is exactly what we got. We were told that our guide would call between 5-8 p.m. to verify pick-up but we were out at dinner. We came back to find message on our phone; the first at 5:05 p.m.We were picked up on time by our guide Tony and our driver Mr. Wu. They were friendly and engaging and water ready for us. Tony took care of everything (buying tickets and pointing us in the right direction). He made a point of repeatedly telling us to take our time, that no matter when we descend, he will be waiting. When he came down four hours later, he surprised us by offering more water and fresh fruit (oranges and one of the local apples which are huge).Team, thank you again! It was one of our highlights of Xi'an.

    Our tour guide Isaac was really helpful in getting us the tickets, explaining how everything works, where to go and what to do in emergencies. We originally wanted to go up to the north peak and come down via the north peak but he mentioned this would mean doubling the hike time and recommended we go from the west peak to the north peak and this was honestly the better option and we're glad he recommended it. Walking the mountain trail offers amazing views and is a great experience and I recommend going with this tour group - there are so many tickets involved and it can get confusing so it's good to have a support system there!

    Huashan is one of the 5 sacred mountains of China. The scenery is fantastic and the hiking experience excellent, only dependent on your fitness and availability of time. Many choose, as I did, to take the cable car up the West peak, which is in itself a fun trip. There are five peaks you can walk to once you arrive. I hiked to the top of the West and East, and also visited, but did not attempt, the plank on South Peak. The clean air and cloudless skies were a bonus given the normal air quality in Xian and surrounding area. Keep in mind that the bus trip from the visitor's center along with the cable car will set you back about US$80. A great day in the mountains and visiting during the low season meant the crowds were small. You can of course climb up the entire mountain, though the impression I had was that you should be young and/or experienced to do so.

    Tour was great. Everything went like clockwork getting to and back from the mountain. Moutain was beautiful, but would have liked another day to see everything. Tour guide was nice and professional.

    This was easily a major highlight of our 4 week epic Asia adventure. Our tour guide, Sunny, was such pleasure to spend the day with and told us all about Xi'an and Huashan mountain on our 2 hour drive to the mountain. We took a cable car up most of the mountain and then parted with Sunny to explore on our own for about 3.5 hours. We hiked first to North peak and then to Middle Peak. I won't sugar coat it, the entire hike is stairs sometimes very very steep stairs so it wasn't easy! But that made it all the more rewarding when we reached the summit of middle peak with a view of West and North peaks. It was breathtaking! There were a fair amount of people hiking the mountain but the general mood was a happy, delighted one so it was really fun. Finally, we hiked back down to the cable car and rode it to meet Sunny and headed back to the hotel.
