There is no direct long-distance bus between these two places.
You are suggested to take the metro line 1 to the Main Railway Station first. Take a train to Jiaozuo Railway Station. It takes around half an hour. After arriving, there are direct buses that can take you to the mountain area. The duration is around 1.5 hours.

The return way is the same. There is no direct long-distance bus to Zhengzhou.
