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. Stop by the lighthouse which was built to signal for oncoming attacks! However the king during the Zhou Dynasty used it to entertain his wife. Unfortunately this caused mass problems, as the king enjoyed playing with the light to amuse his wife, when the tower was lit again during an attack all the generals ignored it.Show more

Huashan Scenic Area features one of the great five mountains of China, Mount Hua. Hushan is known to be the great western mountain, and is considered to be one of four top tourist attractions in China. For those who enjoy a challenge and thrills, check out the sky plank hike. The sky plank hike is quite dangerous and is not recommended for the faint of heart. Hikers will have to navigate in narrow spaces up in high elevation. Huashan also has a variety of challenging hikes, for those who are not interested in such, check out the Xiaqi Pavilion, Huixin Rock, and other cool attractions. More attractions at Huashan which include: Hundred-Foot Crevice, Laojun Plough Ditch, Thousand-Foot Precipice, Canglong Mountain, and more! For those interested in history and religion, make sure to stop by the different temples!Show more
