In the morning, your guide and driver will pick you up from the lobby of your hotel on time. The guide will contact you the day before to confirm the specific meeting time. After a warm greeting, we will start the Huashan Mountain tour by taking a private transfer for 2 hours to the mountain. On arrival, we will go to the West Peak Cableway by the tourist shuttle bus for about 40 minutes, and then take the cable car to the most beautiful West Peak of the mountain. Alighting from the cable car, we will walk about 20 minutes to its top. The West Peak is also called Lotus Flower Peak because of a huge rock on the top shaping like a lotus flower. We will go sightseeing the scenic spots with beautiful legends like Taoist Temple Cuiyun Palace, Lotus Cave and Axe-splitting Rock. The most famous Axe-splitting Rock originates from a story goes that a son called Chen Xiang rescued his mother. His mother was a goddess. She fell in love with a mortal man and gave birth to Chen Xiang later. But her behaviors violated the rule of Heaven, so she was imprisoned under the Mt. Huashan. After knowing the truth, Chen Xiang split the mountain with an axe and saved his mother.

Afterwards, go on hiking 30 minutes to the highest peak of Mt. Huashan, the South Peak with an altitude of 2,160 meters (7,087 feet). It is renowned as the monarch of Mt. Huashan because it is the highest among the Five Sacred Mountains of China. Standing on it, you are so close to the sky that you seem to be able to pick the stars. Also, you can overlook the spectacular surrounding scenery. The famous Black Dragon Pool and Greeting Pines are also on the South Peak.

Finally, we will head to the East Peak which can be reached in an hour. It is the best place to watch the sun rise, thus also called Facing Sun Peak. Immortal's Palm Peak, known as the No. 1 of the Eight Scenic Wonders of Xi'an, is also located here. According to the legend, the Deity Juling ripped the mountain into two halves to let the flood out and save the people there. After that, we will check in at the hotel on the mountain and have a good rest.

Today, we will get up in the early morning to appreciate the sun rise. Then go back to the hotel for breakfast. Afterwards, we will continue the Huashan Mountain tour to the Middle Peak, also named as Jade Maiden Peak. The hiking time is about 40 minutes. The Middle Peak is in the center of East, West and South Peaks. At the top is the Jade Maiden Temple which is said to be the place where Nong Yu, the daughter of Qin Mugong (569 - 621 BC), cultivated her own moral character. Walking from the Middle Peak to North Peak takes about 2 hours and we will pass the famous Black Dragon Ridge in the midway. After arriving at North Peak, your Mt. Huashan hiking tour comes to an end. Your guide will escort you to descend the mountain by cable car and then take the shuttle bus back to the mountain foot.

Now, you must feel hungry so it is suggested to have a simple meal there to recover energy. And then the guide will transfer you back to your hotel in the downtown.
