So your purpose is going from Zhangjaijie to the Yellow Mountain, right? Well then, you can take a train to Changsha first and then transfer to the only bullet train to HS North, where many shuttle buses are scheduled to the mountain.
Answered by Qyoung from USA | Jul. 25, 2016 11:22

Thanks a lot.
The train from Changsha South to HS is 11:58 AM.
My concern is how to reach Changsha in time.
I am wondering if there is a overnight bus or train from Zhangjiajie to Changsha.
Answered by Dave | Jul. 26, 2016 03:54

Yes! You can take an overnight train from Zhangjiajie Railway Station to Changsha Railway Station (about 5 hours). Then, take metro line 2 to Changsha South Railway Station, or take a taxi for about CNY 30.

Yes, it is a nice time for a visit. It may be cloudy, and the temperature may range from 50F to 60F at that time.
You are advised to prepare jackets, shirts, pants, and an umbrella in case of the rainy day.

As I know, except the Yuping tephler is under reconstruction now, the others, including Taiping tephler, Yungu tephler, and the West Sea Gully tephler are all in operation.
In addition, you'd better keep an eye on the official website of the scenic area to know the latest information.
