The villagers of Xiyang Village, Lintong County, Shaanxi Province, will never forget the unpredictable spring of March 1974. At that time, the three young farmers held their breath for a brief moment, because the field seemed to be annihilated together with their drill, tripod, and wooden shovel. A moment ago, they were working hard with others, and at this time, they had fallen into an ancient passage. The channel collapsed around them, lifting the billowing dust high into the sky overhead. When the dust settled, they found themselves surrounded by a group of heavily armored warriors: a group of life-size pottery soldiers stared blankly at the accidental invaders.
The Qin Shihuang Terracotta Warriors and Horses Museum is located east of Lintong County, 37 kilometers from Xi'an. The Qin Shihuang Terracotta Warriors and Horses Museum is China's most significant ancient military museum. After the excavation of the figurines, the museum was open to the world. In 1978, after the visit of former French Prime Minister Jacques Chirac, he said, "There are seven miracles in the world, and the discovery of the Qin figurines can be recognized to be the eighth miracle. If you don't visit the pyramids, you can't say you've been to Egypt. If you have never been to the Terracotta Warriors, you can't claim you've been to China. "Since then, the Qin figurines have been hailed as the eighth wonder of the world."

Huashan is the sacred mountain of the Chinese nation. One of the five peaks of China, Huayue Mountain, is located south of Huayin City, at an altitude of 1997 meters, and 120 kilometers from Xi'an. It borders Qinling Mountain in the south and Huang Wei in the north. The Mountain guards the gateway of the northwest against the Central Plains. It is known as "the first mountain in the world." It is famous for its steep mountains. The main peaks of Huashan include the south summit "falling geese," the east peak "Chaoyang," and the west peak "lotus." There are Yuntai and Yunv two peaks on the side, 36 small peaks are listed in front, tigers, and dragons, and the weather is fascinating. Due to the changing climate on the mountain, "Yunhua Mountain," "Yuhua Mountain," "Mist Huashan," and "Xuehua Mountain" are formed, giving people a fairyland beauty.
There are more than 210 famous scenic spots in Huashan. There are long sky planks erected in the sky, three mules turning over facing the air, and thousand-foot towers, 100-foot gorge, and Laojun ditch cut out on cliffs. Xianzhang was listed as the first of the eight scenic spots in Guanzhong. Huashan (Main Peak Scenic Area) has two mountain gates (into the mountain pass): Dongshan Gate and Xishan Gate (also known as Huashan Gate). Take the ropeway up the mountain to Dongshan Gate; if you are hiking, enter from Xishan Gate. Huashan currently has two cableways on the east and west lines, reaching the west and north peaks, respectively.
The skywalk is located on the mountainside east of the south peak of Huashan Mountain. It is the first generation of the Huashan School's master of the Yuan Dynasty. He Zhizhen cultivated to become a fairy away from the rest of the world. The top and bottom of the boardwalk are cliffs, the iron cables are suspended, the stones are made into a ruler, and the bottom is fixed by stone pillars. At this point, the visitors are facing the stomach and holding their breath, which is known as "the first mountain of Huashan". There are cliffs on the top and bottom of the long boardwalk, and the iron cables are suspended horizontally. Due to the treacherous path, the locals have said, "Be careful with nine points and three points, look for dead bodies, Luonan Shangzhou". This is just the way of adventure, not the only way to climb mountains. The timid can just look at the table. So there are a lot of warning words on the stone carving: "cliffs and horses" and so on.
