Description

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.
