HuaShan (华山) is one of the most famous mountain in China. Huashan has gondolas to the North peak and many people choose to ride the Gondola. So the trail from starting point YuQuanYuan (玉泉院) to North peak is pretty empty. The trail is a typical Chinese fashion with well built steps, and some light poles, indicating that it is possible to hike at night without flash light. The first few miles are gradual accent until the point of Thousand Foot Narrow (千尺幢), Then the trail becomes narrow and steep, almost all the way to the North Peak. There are a number of attractions on the peaks, some appear very dangerous requiring ropes for protection. You have the option to skip these attractions.
