How to Plan a Xian Huashan Tour

People usually spend 2-4 days visiting Xian and Huashan. When you are in Xian, the Terracotta Warriors buried for more than 2000 years is definitely a must-see. And it would be a pleasant experience to take a stroll or rent a bike on the Ancient City Wall, the largest and best-preserved ancient city wall in China, to enjoy panoramic views of modern Xi’an. Apart from that, the snack street Muslim Quarter, symbol of Xian the Bell Tower, bright pearl in ancient capital Shaanxi History Museum, the Buddhist culture demonstrator Giant Wild Goose Pagoda, etc. are also worth a go. You can choose some of them according to your schedule.

As for Mount Hua, you can either set aside one day to finish hiking with the help of the cable car, or stay a night on the mountain. But please be kindly noted that the accommodation on the mountain may be far from satisfying. For 1-day hiking, the recommended route is Tourist Center – North Peak Cable Car – East Peak – South Peak – West Peak – West Peak Cable Car – Tourist Center, which will take 6 – 8 hours. For 2 days, you can refer to the following route: Tourist Center - Yuquan Temple - North Peak - East Peak - South Peak - West Peak - West Peak Cable Car - Tourist Center. >>More about Mount Hua Hiking
