Huaqing Hot Springs

    Situated at the northern foot of Mt. Lishan in Lintong County, 30 kilometers (18.6 miles) from Xian City, Huaqing Hot Springs are famed for both its dainty spring scenery and the romantic love story of Emperor Xuanzong (685-762) and his concubine Yang Guifei in the Tang Dynasty (618-907). They have been used for 2500 years. The mineral-rich waters bubbling up from the earth have soothed emperors dating back to the notorious Qin Shihuang, and during the Tang Dynasty it became a primary imperial summer residence. Today, many imperial-era buildings and pools remain, accompanied by a small museum and marble boat. The five remaining pools are the Lotus Pool, Haitang Pool, Shangshi Pool, Star Pool and Prince Pool. We can enjoy a grand Tang Dynasty Performance - The Song Of Unending Sorrow  played every night at Huaqing Hot Springs.

Mt. Huashan
   Mount Hua, or Hua Shan is located near the city of Huayin in Shaanxi province, about 120 kilometers east of Xi'an. It is a part of the Qin Mountains, which divide not only northern and southern Shaanxi, but also China. It is one of China's Five Great Mountains, and has a long history of religious significance. The mountain is classified as five main peaks, which are the representative attractions and each has its distinctive charms: East Peak is the best place to enjoy the sunrise; South Peak has the highest altitude; West Peak is the most elegant; North Peak is famous as the Cloud Terrace Peak and Middle Peak is also called Jade Lady Peak. Huashan has a variety of temples and other religious structures on its slopes and peaks. At the foot of the mountains is the Cloister of the Jade Spring(Yu Quan Yuan). Atop the southern-most peak there is an ancient taoist temple which in modern times has been converted into a tea house.The inherent danger of many of the exposed, narrow pathways with precipitous drops gave the mountain a deserved reputation for danger.
