Yujingfeng Sceneic Area (Hard): This area will consume most of your energy. You need to take around 2-3 hours to finish your hike. Steeper to Hike, but it is very quiet. This area has fewer attractions, but more original scenery of Sanqing Mountain.
Sceneic Area (Normal): You’ll only need around 50 minutes to finish this route. The most exhausting part will be not more than 100 footsteps and you can slow down anytime to recharge your energy.
This is a very challenging mountain, it is quite steep on almost every route.
Plank Walk (Hard): Enter the scenic area and walk to the bottom of the West Peak. It takes about 20 minutes to reach the top of the West Peak via cable car. Then you will spend some time hiking to Huashan Plank Walk. Huashan Plank Walk is located on the eastern side of the South Peak (2155m, the highest peak on Mount Hua), and is built on the precipice with iron chains nailed into it on one side. The Plank Walk is about 20 minutes’ hike from the South Peak, 1 hour’s hike from East Peak and 30 minutes’ hike from West Peak.

If you have good physical strength you can hike up and down the mountain, otherwise, you can get up and down via cable car.
