Xian to Jiuzhaigou via train and bus- URGENT HELP REQUIRED!

Please advise what is the best route to get from Xian to Jiuzhaigou via train or bus, other than the plane (only business class left, out of budget).

(1) Xian to Lanzhou via train, then bus to Jiuzhaigou

(2) Xian to Guangyuan via train, then bus to Jiuzhaigou

(3) Xian to Jiangyou via train, then bus to Jiuzhaigou

a. how many days is the bus travelling for each route?

b. how long will it take- 1 or 2 days?

c. Is the bus schedule frequent and only 1 trip per day?

d. How is the road condition- is it safe?

e. Is the journey scenic with possible stopover?

Which is the best route to travel?

There must be economy tickets left on the routing of Xi'an to Chengdu and then Chengdu to JZH. Sure, it is costly, even in economy, but you get there more quickly than the train and bus, and more rested to see things right away. With a two-hour layover in Chengdu, it will take you four to six hours.

I picked October 15 as an arbitrary date and came up with a total of 1330 yuan including taxes. Be flexible with your dates, as you would be for a two-day trip from Xi'an to Jiuzhaigou via train and bus.

For busses and trains you can check here jiuzhai.com/language/…visit_travel.html

Train and bus via Jiangyou is the way to do it if you're going by land. The road from Guangyuan to Jiuzhaigou is in disrepair and buses were not travelling on it as of last week. You can probably get a night train and then a 6 hour bus from Jiangyou to Jiuzhaigou. Bus times coming to Jiuzhaigou - I'm not too sure, I'll have to check that out. There is a website www.seat61.com that might be good for train times.
