Later, drive to visit the largest ancient underground military base in the world Terra-Cotta Warriors and Horses Museum. You can catch thousands of vivid life-sized model soldiers, horses, and chariots in three pits. These warriors differing in facial expressions, hairstyles, and dresses pretty much speak for themselves. A site you cannot help saying WOW when you see the whole army standing next to you. As you look at them carefully, you will find they were all repaired ones, putting back together. And your guide will let you know the detailed stories about the underground army.

Afterwards, move to Mount Hua in Shaanxi, one of the Five Great Mountains in China. Being labeled as "The First Odd and Precipitous Mountain in the World", it is renowned for its precipitous cliffs, dramatic landscapes and ancient Taoist cultural remains.
