It is recommended to take the train, and there are dozens of trains between these two places every day. The ordinary train takes about 14 hours and high speed train takes about 5 hours. After you arriving there, you can go to the local Coach Station to take direct bus to Shaolin temple. I'm afraid you can't come back in 1 day.
