Xi’an & Mt Huashan

A step to step journey to south peak of Mt hua…..On top just to see how beautiful the world is….As i already told about my bucket list. This is to inform that i finally completed one of the things in bucket list (Trek to Mt Huashan & Xi’an).

This trip was gift to me on my birthday. Somewhere i saw a man standing on small plank on edge of mountain, i searched about the place and came up with place & planned for doing it some day in my life. But somehow i wanted to do it first & so i booked my ticket without thinking it for another second ; booking ticket is one thing & getting visa was tricky showing balance of Rs 1.60 lac was the tough part but i somehow managed to bring all the things in one plate & received the visa.

31st Oct was the date i have to board my flight my first overseas tour that to alone. Lots of things to come & lots of experiences to be felt. This is small step towards my journey to self.

China is vast country & cannot be covered in few days you need atleast a month to travel this majestic country. Google, facebook doesn’t work in this part of world. But China has its own charm . I only went to one place & it surprised me to every extent i could just imagine how much this country holds.

Xi’an is one of the oldest city in china & it is very beautiful , things are clean , infrastructure is very compact & most important the peoples are very helping. I had many experiences where i felt people saved me from incidents.

My itenary was to climb to mt hua in one day & spend rest all days in city . My tour was for 4 days. People criticized that why to waste 40,000 INR just for one place, but i was adamant that rather wasting time travelling i wanted to absorb city to my level best.

I done my booking of hostel from booking.com  & it offered me lots of reasonable deals which helped me alot. Cost was not to high thus not heavy in pocket.I spent 125 Yuan for  5 nights stay in xian hostel.

Food & Alcohol:

Finding  vegetarian food is difficult task as most of the people eat non vegetarian. But if you can find street food you can explain you accordingly . Food is not expensive. Alcohol is easily available & that to in very reasonable rate.

I completed whole tour under 40 K INR which includes flight cost, travelling cost, living cost & also eating cost. With this tour done i am hoping for more adventure & more learning on this beautiful place called WORLD.
