Travelling time via coach from Jiuzhaigou to Chengdu

I will appreciate if anyone can feedback regarding the time taken to travel via coach from Jiuzhaigou to Chengdu (now ie. if the roads are opened after the earthquake).

I have planned to take an internal flight from Chengdu to visit Jiuzhaigou/Huanglong in late November, than back to Chengdu via coach.

TQ in advance

Around 10 hours. Longer if there are landslides / road works.

there are two routes you can back to Chengdu from Jiuzhaigou, while one of them has been destroyed by earthquake, so you can take another, that is, Jiuzhaigou-Pingwu-Jiangyou-Mianyang-Chengdu. It takes you nearly 10 hours. It will be longer if you get struck in tranfic jam.

The journey was not too bad as far as long distance bus journeys in China go. Road was not too bad; bus was ok; people were not being sick. However, the only reason to do it is to save money on the airfare. Going by bus takes a whole day.

The road via Mianyang and Pingwu is fine now. There are times on the Jiuzhaigou website jiuzhai.com/language/…visit_travel.html

The Wenchuan - Songpan road is undergoing a lot of renovation (not earthquake reconstruction) but it is expected that the new expressway will be open in October. Initial time estimates from Chengdu are of 4 hours!! Only time will tell what it will actually take.
