First thing in the morning, in the outskirts of Luoyang, we visit the Buddhist White Horse Temple, a sprawling monastery and place of study where Buddhists come from all across the world. We go on our route to Hua Shan, the highest of the five Taoist Sacred Mountains, where we include lunch and a cable car ride. The scenery is spectacular, and the atmosphere charged with spirituality. Continue to XIAN, arriving in the afternoon.
NB: On certain dates, for reasons of weather or crowding (maximum authorised in the site) Mount Hua may not be visited. If this point is cancelled, we will see the gardens of Huaquing, near Xian).
