Length: 4.4 mi • Est. 4 h 34 m
This route starts at the base of the mountain which you can get to by bus and gondola. Much of the trail had been cut out of the rock, especially the thousands of steps. Many of the steps are only about 4 to 6 inches deep and there are chains lining the whole trail up the mountain. As you get to the "golden lock pass" you notice many locks locked to the chains. The locks are typically brought by couples and placed on the mountain to bring a long lasting love to their relationship. Then you see the plank walk which is secured by harnesses and cables. At the end of the plank walk is an old Buddhist temple.Show more

Li Shan (骊山) is a relatively small hill in the district of Litong (临潼) of Xi'An (西安) city, an ancient capital for many dynasties. The most famous attraction here is Terracotta Warriors (兵马俑). The world famous museum is only a few miles from the hill. Many people choose to take Gondola to the summit. The trail is built with stone and concrete making it pretty easy to hike. At the summit, there is a kind of bell tower, which was not there 30 years, which provides another 30 feet up above the summit with better views.Show more
