After breakfast, your tour guide will pick you up from your hotel, and then drive to Mount Hua, which takes about two hours on the way.
After arriving at the foot of the Mt.Hua, you can prepare to go hiking.You will begin the hiking journey from Yuquan Temple and then leave for the Huixin Rock.The distance to the Huixin Rock is easy to climb, which allows you to enjoy the scenery alongside the road. When it comes to the Thousands Feet and the Bai Chi Gorge, Mount Hua begins to show its precipitousness so that you have to go sightseeing and climb carefully at the same time.It will take about 2 hours to reach the North Peak. Or you can choose to take the cable car to reach the North Peak with the extra fee paid by yourself.The cable car may cost about 10 minutes and hiking may cost about half an hour.
If you need to have lunch before going hiking, you can ask your tour guide to take you to the local restaurant and help you order the meal, but the meal is needed to pay for by yourself. If you have brought your own food, you can take a break and then climb the mountain directly.
Then you can set out to the East Peak after a break for sightseeing.Then you will spend the whole night on the Mount Hua. You can stay in a hotel on the mountain at night or you can choose to camp on the mountain according to your needs，but it is necessary to keep warm because the temperature at the top of the mountain is relatively low.
Before hiking, you are expected to pack enough food with you to replenish your energy, and also bring enough water to replenish the water lost during mountain climbing.
