HuaShang Aug 21, 2011
HuaShang is one of the 5 famous mountains in China. It is located at Xi'an. However, you will need to take a "slow" train to HuaShang station or a "fast" train to HuaShang station. The difference in timing is an hour. However, I will recommend the "slow" train as it stopped near HuaShang. For the "fast" train, it is at another train station and you will need to take a 10 mins shuttle bus to HuaShang. It cost 10 yuan and will only leave if there are 10 people. Worst still, it will not bring you back to the station after the trip!!

HuaShang itself is very beautiful. If you seldom exercise, my advice is not to climb the mountain. Some of the stairs are like 45 degree slope. The 1st 30 mins is the toughest. After that, things get better. Climbing to the peak will take an average of 6 hours!!!. Climbing down will take another 3-4 hours. So start early. Or you can stay overnight at the small hotel on top of the mountain. But you will not be disappointed because the view is fantastic and the accomplishment of climbing the mountain is beyond words.

A MUST VISIT if you happen to be at Xi'an, China.
