It's not really a forest that we are used to. Always crowded and not very clean and it's hard to get to.

I decided to go to Lishan after visiting Huaqing Hot Spring, as it was nearby. I regretted visiting this place. Firstly, the cable car queue was long due to the peak season. Spent 45 mins queuing. At the summit, the view was pathetic. It may be due to the overcast weather that day. Don’t waste your time, which can be... More

Lishan stands behind Hua Qing Chi. You find cable car to by Hua Qing Chi. Lishan is special AAAA scenic area by China government but it is correct to say that the top of Lishan is THE scenery. Only going up by the cable car doesn't take you there. You need to pay entrance fee to the top, walk up... More

We arrived there at almost seven o'clock.At that time the park is open to the public for free.When we climb the mountain, There were cool wind, make us feel comfortable. So if possible you can visit there after seven o'clock in the evening.The staff there will go back home , so it's free to visit the park.

Located next to hua ching qi, there is cable car that will bring you up Lishan. To and fro tickets costs 60 rmb per person which is reasonable. Along the ride you can see hua ching chi at the bottom and the over view of xi'an and lintong. When you reached the top you can take breathtaking pictures just like... More

went up by cable car and walk down the mountain, quite a easy walk. suggest to visit 华清池 which is at the bottom of the mountain. This is one of the stp to consider when you are on the way to visit 兵马俑. some history of the mountain, but there are a lot better mountains to visit in China.
