Jiuzhaigou-HuangLong-Chengdu

Hi Everyone

I plan to visit JZG first, then followed by HuangLong(HL) via bus. From HL, is there any direct bus back to Chengdu(CTU) or I have to take the 3pm bus back to JZG and then take the next-day AM bus back to CTU? Hope anyone can enlighten me. Thanks.

There is no direct bus from Huanglong to Chengdu - or at least there has not been up until now. Also all buses until now have left in the morning to go to Chengdu so it would not be possible to get an afternoon bus after you leave Huanglong. In late March or early April bus schedules for the year should be published and things could change.

You mean there's no 3pm bus from HL to JZG? So what options do I have once I am done with 4-hour visit at HL?

There are no afternoon buses to Chengdu. The 3pm HL - JZG bus exists.

4 days in JZG / HL...1 (or 2) days in JZG, 1 day in HL, one (or 2) day hiking in the Zharu Ecotourism Valley OR one day in Songpan. You could also hike in the valleys outside of JZG to get a glimpse of local life.

Since there is very little accommodation at Huanglong you could get the bus to drop you at the crossroads and get a taxi to SongPan and continue from there next day to Chengdu - about 3 buses per day around 6:30, 7:30, 8:30 am

No, but if you get off the Hualglong - Jiuzhaigou bus at Chuan Zhu Si you can get a taxi for about 20 RMB.

Thanks for the info. April is the start of peak season. It is still possible to visit JZG for 2 days?

Of course it's possible but not for the same price. You can check the pricing on their website. www.jiuzhai.com/language/english/visit.html

Hi, we will fly in chengdu and planned to spend

two days in JZG,

one day in huanglong,

one day back in chengdu at giant panda research centre

Can anyone advise us on the logistic?? Since it is not possible to go back to JZG after the visit at huanglong, what choice do we have coz we don't think we can carry our backpacks on our shoulders walking whole day in huanglong?
