Kind Notice:

For this tour, we recommend you book a hotel near Bell Tower or on the route of Xian Metro Line 2.

We would like to suggest you prepare some food and water for the whole climb. The lunch is on your own since there is no restaurant on the mountain top, and the water there is expensive, five times the normal price.

If your group is bigger than 5 people, we advise you to visit Mt. Huashan by private car. Because if the group is bigger, private transportation costs the same or even less than bullet trains.
