How to get to Yading

We visited Yading in Daocheng last year winter time. We hired a car from Hailuo Valley directly there and drove for about 12 hours. We did study other alternatives, I will share here:

Some other popular ways:

1. Bus from Chengdu 成都 to Daocheng 稻城 then car to Yading 亚丁

  • Chendu Xinnanmen Bus Station (10am) -> stop overnight in Kangding -> (6am) leave again for Daocheng
  • Once you arrive in Daocheng (around 6pm) you can stay overnight then hire a car to go to Yading scenic area the next day
  • bus tickets are around 250rmb/person, if you are going during peak season you should book in advance

2. Bus from Chengdu 成都 to Kangding 康定 then bus to Daocheng 稻城 then car to Yading 亚丁

  • There are daily buses from Chengdu to Kangding Bus Station, ride time about 8 hours
  • Stay overnight in Kangding and take a bus next morning to Daocheng (there is only 1 per day at 6am) - alternatively you can find other travellers here to share a car together, which is more expensive but the driver can stop at sites along the way for you to visit quickly
  • Stay overnight in Daocheng and rent a car to Yading scenic area the next day
