Distance & Travel time between each location

Hi,

Can anyone please provide me with the distance and travel time it takes between the follwing places based on the current road condition (I'll be traveling around 24-26 October 2009):

1. Jiuzhai airport to Jiuzhaigou park

2. Jiuzhai airport to Huanglong

3. Jiuzhai airport to Songpan

4. Songpan to Huanglong

5. Jiuzhaigou park to Huanglong

6. Jiuzhaigou park to Songpan

If i plan to do Huanglong early in the morning and catch a flight back to Chengdu at 15:30, around what time should i leave Huanglong? And will it be too rush?

I hate to argue with local DEs but based on my experience of the extensive roadworks last month those first to are at least 90 minutes. The first bus in the morning leaves at 7 am and arrives around 10-10:30. You need a min of 4 hours (assuming you take the cable car) & 5 is better so you don't have time. Since getting to the airport is dependent on finding a taxi why don't you visit Huanglong on the day you arrive instead of the last day.

I tried putting Huanglong on the last day since i thought it would be closer to the airport instead of coming from Jiuzhaigou.

I'll see if i could catch a later flight. Thank you all for your help :)

The times I put are average if you travel by car, not bus, sorry, I should have said that. In these areas you could give or take 10 or 20mins when you travel on windy mountain roads like the one from the airport to Huanglong. Depending on many factors there could be slight hold ups along the way.

Sorry for the double post....

The way you should plan your trip is...

Airport - Huanglong - Songpan overnight.

Songpan - Jiuzhaigou

Jiuzhaigou - Airport and home.

I'm including Songpan there because I'm assuming you want to spend some time there?

It would be great to spend 2 days in Jiuzhaigou and do some hiking as well if you had the time but that's a brief outline of how I'd recommend maximising your time in the area.

Hi,

I just booked a return flight from Jiuzhaigou to Chengdu at 8:20 in the morning on the 27th Oct. Should i spend my 26th Oct night at Jiuzhaigou or should i move to somewhere close by to the airport? Maybe at Songpan?
