YES. It is doable but tight time for sightseeing Huanglong.

The distance from airport to Huanglong is about 43km and it will last about 1 hour if you take by airport shuttle bus (the fare is RMB22). So you have only 5 hours (from 1-5 clcok) in Huanglong.

TRAVELING IS LIFE. HOPE HELPFUL.

You'll probably have about 4 hours sightseeing at Huanglong. You can consider to climb the mountain depending on your health condition, or you can take the cable car. Afterwards drive to Jiuzhaigou, overnight at Sheraton Hotel.

Have a nice trip!

Hope this helps,

Hi there,

Totally doable. Jiuzhigou to Huanglong takes three hours, but the airport is about an hour and half from Huanglong (So, you save an hour and half). When you arrive Huanglong, take the cable car up, then hike your way down. It should take 4 hours. Then it takes 3 hours to drive back to Jiuzhaigou.

But I am not so sure about taking and waiting for the bus to do this trip. You will probably have to negotiate with a taxi driver at the airport for an all day fare. The taxi will take you to Huanglong, wait for you for 4 hours, then drive you to your hotel in Jiuzhigou. It is very easy to find a driver to do this, they do it all the time. Be sure to pay your driver at the end of the trip in Jiuzhigou.

You can do the same on the shuttle bus if there are 6 people willing to do it. The cost is 100 RMB. A taxi could cost between 400 and 500 RMB.

If you have 8 people you should be fine. The buses seat between 9 and 17 people and will leave with a minimum of 6 people. To Huanglong and then Jiuzhaigou costs 100 RMB. It will wait for you while you visit Huanglong and you can leave your luggage on board.

What If the bus have other passengers prefer to stay 2 hours and let say we prefer to stay 4 hours.

How do the bus driver handle this situation?

It's really hard to imagine to leave your luggage with a STRANGER....

What kind of guarantee we have that the driver will safe guard your luggage or still be there waiting for you.

We will be travelling from North America to China for 3 weeks and we do carry a fair amount of stuff. I don't think there are anything valuable but I hate to lose it.

Anyone have experience with this?

You can't do Huanglong in 2 hours. The driver may ask everybody to agree on 4:00 or 4:30 hr but that is the minimum time to take the cable car up & walk down. The driver will basically arrange it all - they do this EVERY day.
