Huashan- The Flower Mountain – The Divine Flower Mountain
Posted on by
« Previous Post   |   Next Post »

Huashan, with the Chinese meaning of Flower Mountain is amongst the five sacred Taoist mountains in China. Huashan is important to many religious sites like Taoist temples, pavilions and engraved scriptures which are scattered over the mountain. The mountain is well known for its deep narrow valleys and steep cliffs. It is known as “the most precipitous mountain under the heaven” by the visitors. The Flower Mountain is probably the most dangerous mountain in the world where people visit regularly. The hikers find this mountain a very challenging and interesting destination. The trek up the hill would be very hard yet a successful person would be rewarded by a picturesque view of the vicinity.
The mountain is located 120 km East of Xian. The North peak is known as the Cloud Terrace Peak, Middle Peak is known as the Jade Maiden Peak, East Peak is known as the Sunrise Peak, West Peak is known as the Lotus Peak and South Peak is known as the Landing Wild Goose Peak. The starting point to the mountain is the lowest peak, which is the Cloud Terrace Peak. It can be reached through the winding track from Huashan Village, the cable car or the path beneath it. The next station would be Jade Maiden Peak. According to the legends it is said that a jade maiden was once seen riding a white horse over the mountains and the name Jade Maiden Peak came after it. From this point a right turn would lead you to the Lotus Peak and a left to the Sunrise Peak. At the Sunrise Peak you would get a rare opportunity of observing a breathtaking view of the sunrise early morning. The Lotus Peak resembles a beautifully blossoming Lotus Flower. 
Visitors can also find a gondola which takes visitors across a plunging valley to the Landing Wild Goose Peak which is the highest of the five peaks. The journey afterwards is a rough one with steep rock faces and obstacles and not the ideal trip for the weak hearted and it is dangerous during winter. But the view at the top is simply breathtaking. Visitors desiring to go there early in the morning to watch the sunrise can stay at any Serviced Apartment Xi’an and one of the best choices to make is Citadines Central Xi’an, for anyone looking for good Xi’an Accommodation.
