Huanglong National Park is in the south of Jiuzhaigou Valley, and about 127 kilometers away from it. For tourists from Jiuzhaigou Valley to Huanglong National Park, here lists some transportation options.
Option 1: Bus
Bus from Jiuzhaigou Valley to Huanglong National Park starts at Jiuzhaigou Goukou Bus Station and stops at Huanglong scenic area, which takes about 3.5 hours and costs about 40 yuan for a person. Considering lots of tourists will go to Huanglong from Jiuzhaigou, you may buy a ticket ahead of time. Jiuzhaigou Goukou Bus Station is close to Jiutong hotel(九通宾馆), and the bus goes to Huanglong in the morning at 06:30 and 07:00, and goes back in the afternoon.
Option 2: Taxi
Taxi is a convenient way for tourists to go to Huanglong form Jiuzhaigou, but it should be much more expensive, about 400 yuan. If you are in a group of 3 or 4, the taxi fare will be more reasonable.
Option 3: Car Rental
If you are in a large group of 7 or so, I advise you to charter a private car with an experience driver. Certainly, you could book a transfer service from a travel agency, like Topchinatravel. Our transfer service includes car, driver and tour guide, which may be adjusted according to your need. If you book a transfer service from a travel agency, please make it at least one day ahead of time, otherwise they do not have enough time to arrange the car for you.
