    La Cresta del Dragón Verde/ Green Dragon Ridge

    by elpariente Updated Apr 2, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    La Cresta del Dragón Verde es un paso espectacular que une el Pico Norte con el resto de los Picos.
    Es un paso estrecho de unos 60cm de ancho que sube unas empinadas escaleras con acantilados a ambos lados y tan sólo las cadenas de los pasamanos para agarrarse , sobre todo cuando te cruzas con alguien .
    Tienes suerte cuando hay niebla por debajo de la montaña , pues así no ves los precipicios

    The Green Dragon Ridge is a dramatic pass that links the North peak with the rest of the Peaks.
    It is a narrow passage of about 60cm in width, which rises some steep stairs with cliffs on both sides and only chains as handrails to grab to them , especially when you meet someone in the other direction .
    You are lucky when there is fog below the mountain, thus you do not see the cliffs

    Antes de ir a Huashan fuimos al Centro de visitas que es un moderno edificio de dos plantas , donde te pueden dar la infomación que necesites pues hablan algo de inglés y allí es donde organizamos y "pagamos" las entradas y transportes para ir a la montaña
    Pudimos dejar las maletas y las recogimos cuando bajamos de la montaña.
    Nos pareció caro , pero la quinta montaña taoísta merece la pena
    Importe :
    Consigna : una maleta 10 Yuan
    Entrada parque : 100 Yuan
    Transporte hasta el teleférico : 20 Yuan
    Teleférico : 110 Yuan

    Before to go to Huashan we went to the Visitors Center , that is a modern two-storey building, where you can get the information you need , because they speak some English and that is the place where we organized and "payed" the entrance and transportation tickets to go to the mountains
    We were able to leave here the suitcases and pick them up when we came back from the mountain.
    We thought it was expensive, but the " fifth Taoist mountain ...."

    The whole mountain

    by bhemak Written Oct 5, 2004

    My tip is simply to go. Its great, be prepared, but it is great. See the North Peak, climb to the others, see the good luck locks, see a Taoist temple, see the stream, use the gondola if you must. But, in general, just go.

    See travelouge for more pics.

    Route Planning

    by xiaomei Written May 2, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    You should plan for at least 2-3 days to visit Huashan. Stay overnight in the mountain and watch the sunrise (this is popular among Chinese students travellers there).

    Tour packages that start transporting you there from Xi'an in the morning and ushering you back down to the bottom in the late afternoon to have dinner in a few of the mountain resort's restaurant, or back to Xi'an. You only get around 3 hours to explore mountain routes, which is unsatisfactory to me.

    Sometimes routes on the mountain can be jammed with slow human traffic, because people can walk only in a single file.
