Hua Shan

One of Taoism’s five sacred mountains is the granite domes of Hua Shan. There are windy trails up to the five peaks that make for a great day adventure and overnight if time allows. There are knife-blade ridges and twisted pine trees clinging for their lives to the micro ledges of cliffs. The five summits offer transcendent panoramas of green mountains and views of the countryside that stretch to the horizon. There are two ways up the mountain hike or take a cable car then continue to hike to reach the summits. We took the cable car up then hiked down. Our time was limited otherwise we would have walked the entire route. We spent the majority of the day making the hike to all five peaks for different views.
