How to visit Hua Shan in China as an easy DIY trip

Why visit Hua Shan Hua Shan Mountain is one of the most beautiful mountains in China. It is very popular among tourists because it is easy to reach. There are several ways of various complexity to visit the mountain. One of the meanings of the Hua hieroglyph (华) is “flowery”. Situated in Haying City, Mt. Hua Shan stands 120 kilometres (75 miles) away from Xian. It is famous for its natural vista of steep and narrow paths, precipitous crags and a high mountain range. Its five peaks are impressive attractions and each has its own distinctive charms. East Peak is the best place to enjoy the sunrise; South Peak has the highest altitude; West Peak is the most elegant; North Peak is famous as the Cloud Terrace Peak and Middle Peak is also called Jade Lady Peak. Mt. Hua Shan is also one of the five sacred mountains in China. The Mountain is home to several influential Taoist temples, where many emperors of past dynasties took part in Taoist activities and sacrificed to the god of the mountain, making it a holy land of Taoism.
