Am in Xi'an for several months and want to hike in Qinling Mountains south of Xi'an. Having a hard time finding information about trails/good hiking areas and buses that I could take that would drop me in the morning and then then that I could catch back to Xi'an in the afternoon OR is there a better way to approach this? Are there any hiking clubs in Xi'an?
There are two buses may serve your purpose. Huanshan (Mountain) line 1 and 2 ,which starts from Dayan Pogoda (stop is at the east part of the north square) to various mountain spots. I suggest take line 2 and you may stop at some popular destinations like Nanwutai, Jiawutai or Cuihuashan.
In Xi'an, Shops selling outdoor clothes usually offer infos about hiking and other outdoor activities.
