Pick-up from your hotel, and then drive 2.5 hours to the foot of the mountain, Huashan. Huashan is famous for its precipice. It is one of the noted Five Mountains in China, and once called the West Mountain in ancient times.Very steep there the narrow trail is, so you need to take care on your hike!
East Peak(also called the Morning Sun Peak), it is the best place to see the sunrise;
West Peak (also called the Lotus Flower Peak), because of the a huge flower-shaped rock which stands in front of Cuiyun Temple; the central Peak (also called the Jade Lady Peak) Legend has it that the daughter of the King Mu of the Spring and Autumn Period was moved by the music which Xiao Shi and gave up living a happy and luxurious palace life and together with Xiao Shi flew here and lived here;
South Peak (also called the Wild Goose-resting Peak), it towers over all other peaks on the mountains and covered by pines and cypresses that provide deep shade;
North Peak(also called the Cloudy Terrace Peak), it has only one hill that leads to the south with three sides disconnected with anywhere and it is fairly steep.
From a distance, these five peaks look like a lotus flower among the mountains, hence the name of Huashan.
