1. What is the most convenient way to get the Jiuzhaigou area? Is a bus from Chengdu pretty much the only option?
2. What is the best way to get the Huanglong Valley since the airport is closed, which I assume means the bus which goes to both Huanglong and Jiuzhaigou is also not operational?
Thanks a million!
