Xian, Warriors and Mountains

The traditional starting point of the ancient Silk Route, Xian with its pagodas, mosques and ancient city walls is a treasure trove of sites waiting to be explored. Of course the highlight for any visitor to Xian is the extraordinary sight of the hundred's of terracotta warriors arising from their muddy grave, some intact, others still submerged in the earth. Traveling to Mt Huashan one of China's five sacred mountains. We will have time to explore this mountain and visit some of the Taoist temples where past emperors made pilgrimages.

ItineraryExpand
Day 1
On arrival in Xian, the traditional starting point of the Silk Road, you will be met and transferred to your accommodation. This old walled city, the capital of Shaanxi Province, is a vivid example of old and new as the modernised new city bustles around the quaint, winding lanes of the Old Quarter. After freshening up at the hotel, the rest of the day is spent seeing the sights of Xian with a local guide. The Wild Goose Pagoda is a classic example of Chinese temple architecture. Built in 652 AD it houses Buddhist Scriptures brought back from India along the Silk Road. The Shaanxi History Museum houses a collection of chronologically arranged items and includes material previously housed in the Provincial Museum, with many objects that have never been on permanent display before. The Muslim quarter of Xian provides a different feel to the city with its elaborate markets and the Great Mosque. You may also wish to hire a bike and ride around the old city wall for a different view of the city.
Day 2
This morning we drive out to the sight where in 1974 local farmers discovered the tomb of Qin Shihuang with its army of warriors. Excavation of the area continues and we will be able to see this amazing sight in the many stages of pain staking reconstruction work of archaeologists. Each warrior stands over 6 feet tall and has different features and characteristics. Some stand in a vanguard with crossbow and longbow bearers; others hold spears, daggers and axes at the ready. They are accompanied by dozens of horse-drawn carriages and enormous terracotta horses. The sight of the warriors arising from their muddy grave, some intact, others still submerged in the ground, is an extraordinary one. Our local guide will be on hand to escort you and provide further information on this site. Late afternoon we transfer to the foothill of Mt Huashan for our overnight accommodation.
Day 3
After an early breakfast we set off to explore Mt Huashan. Considered one of the 5 sacred mountains in China, Mt Huashan has a long history of religious significance. Famous for its dramatic scenery we will hike to the top of this magnificent site before returning down the mountain by Gondola in the late afternoon. Please note that If you are not feeling up to the challenge of the hike there is also the option to take a gondola to the top (at your own expense). Transfer back to Xian for your overnight accommodation.
Day 4
Our trip concludes today after breakfast. You will be transferred from the hotel to the airport or train station for your onward journey.
