Travel from Chengdu to Dazu Carvings

Myself and my boyfriend are visiting Chengdu shortly. We are wanting to travel to see the Dazu carvings but we only have 1 day and need to be back in Chengdu that night.

What is the best way to make this trip? Is there a combination of busses or trains that we need to take via Chongqing?

Is there anybody in Chengdu with transport that would be willing to visit the area with us?

Any help would be appreciated :)

Chongqing is closer to Dazu,why not go to Chongqing for you connecting transfer there. It is 240km and it takes about 4 hours from Chengdu to Dazu by bus,morever,Dazu Stone Carvings is 16 km away from Dazu County.So you are probably in a rush if you choose to do the day trip to Dazu Stone Carvings from Chengdu.

The private car to Dazu wouldn't be cheap.

2) Dazu bus station- Ji Shi Qiao by local bus#1/#3 with @RMB1

3) Ji Shi Qiao- Bao Ding Shan Stone Carvings by minivan to. Travelling time: 20 min with @RMB3.

4) Bao Ding Shan Stone Carvings- Ji Shi Qiao by minivan. Travelling time: 20 min with @RMB3.

5) Ji Shi Qiao- Stadium by local bus#1/#2/#3/#4 with @RMB1

6) Stadium- Bai Shan Stone Carvings on foot (uphill) for 15 min.

7) Stadium- Dazu bus station by local bus#1/#3 with @RMB1.

An alternate way is:

1) Chengdu East Station- Yong Chuan by night train (#K139/K141/K144). It departs at 21:41 and will arrive at 04:07.

2) Yong Chuan- Dazu by the earliest bus at 07:00, 08:00 with @RMB21 (60KM).

3) Dazu- Chongqing by bus. Travelling time: 2 Hours with @RMB49.

4) Chen Jia Ping bus station- Chongqing North Railway station by taxi.

5) Chongqing- Chengdu by D-train.
