Key information: Hua Shan
- One of China's five sacred Taoist mountains, a spectacular mass of granite soaring above the hazy plains of Shaanxi province.
- A long, tough slog on ancient steps up long slopes of bare rock (can be avoided by cable car), then along a dizzy spine of the mountain to its many peaked crown.
- Ancient temples and pagodas, pines clinging to cliff faces, but plenty of other visitors.
