The most popular transportation now is to take a Chengdu - Zhenjiangguan bullet train then take a Zhenjiangguan - Jiuzhaigou Bus. From the airport, you can take airport shuttle bus line 4 to Chengdu East Train Station to take a train to Zhenjiangguan. From Zhenjiangguan Railway Station, there are buses to Jiuzhaigou near the exit.
Kindly remind that you’d better buy the tickets in advance to ensure a smooth trip. You can buy with TravelChinaGuide hassle-free.

You can't buy it in another city. You can purchase ticket online but it is hard for foreigners. It is suggested to ask the help from your hotel staff to buy the ticket for you.
