Mt. Huashan is known as 'The Number One Precipitous Mountain under Heaven' and one of the five sacred mountains in China.
Day 2 hiking from our hotel to Eastern Peak to watch the sunrise at 6.30pm, and the observation deck is too crowded. The view at Eastern Peak is very beautiful.
Yuquan Courtyard 玉泉院, Jade Spring Temple Attraction
Hiking up Huashan from 玉泉院. The hike takes about 7h and it's fairly challenging. The food and water sold along the way also increase in prices along the way. The path is pretty steep near the top, which is both challenging and memorable. The view at the North Peak is pretty amazing, and the path from North to the other peaks are breathtaking as well. Huashan is a very beautiful mountain with unique smooth yellow stone formation. 徒步上华山从玉泉院开始，大概七小时。幸好天气不错，没下雨，又没超级热，不然可惨了。 一路风景还可以，接近山顶就非常壮观。一路上都有小吃。山脚的矿泉水10元三瓶，途中10元两瓶，山顶就是10元一瓶了。 半路有差不多90度拉铁链上山的梯级。
Mountain Huashan Plank Trail 長空桟道 Attraction
Southern side have the cliff hanging deck which is quite an amazing experience (we queue for about 30 mins). We took the cable car (RMB 140) down via Western Peak and the experience is pretty surreal. The car came out from a man-made mountain cave with extremely high and flat cliff, passing through another peak before reaching the ground. We took a bus (RMB 40) to reach the main Huashan station. 在长空栈道排队大概30分钟，付了30元，可以有惊无险(有安全措施)走过险壁，沿路再回来。
