  2. AM: In the morning, you will visit Terra-cotta Warriors and Horses. Known as “the Eighth Wonder of the World” and one of the most significant archaeological discoveries in the 20th century, the museum shows a surprisingly high level in sculpture.

    Noon: Lunch will be at your own expense (please feel free to ask your guide for suggestions)

    PM: After lunch, head to Big Wild Goose Pagoda. The pagoda was originally built in the early Tang Dynasty (618-907) to keep the sutras and Buddha statues brought back from ancient India by master Xuanzang. Now the Big Wild Goose Pagoda area is a popular amusement place among local people. You may see some people do exercise there. Next, come to Bell Tower and Drum Tower Square to admire the Bell Tower and Drum Tower from a distance. Then take a walk on Muslim Quarter to find lots of local snacks.

  3. AM: In the morning, our guide and driver will meet you at your hotel lobby. After about 2 hours’ driving, we will arrive at Mount Huashan. First, we will take a cable car up the North Peak where you will start your own hiking. The guide will leave you to freely explore the mountain. On the top of the mountain, there are several spots such as Taoist temples, sculptures and engravings. You will enjoy yourself so much on the 4 peaks. After you reach the Gold Lock Pass, you can buy a golden lock and lock it on the iron chains. Visitors usually do this to pray for safety and health. It must be marvelous scenery with thousands of golden locks on the iron chains. On the Middle Peak (Jade Maiden Peak), you can immerse in its supernatural atmosphere. It must be fantastic and amazing to watch the sunset with your own eyes if you are lucky. Then you will move on to the East Peak, the South peak and the West Peak. You can breathe the fresh air on the Mount Huashan! Our tour guide will meet you at the North Peak and take the cable car to the foot of the mountain together.

    Noon: The lunch is on your own since there is no restaurant on mountain top. We would like to suggest you prepare some food and bottled water for the whole climbing.
