Answered by Mile from SINGAPORE | Nov. 20, 2017 20:53

No, metro line 6 can’t take you directly there. You need to change to line 3 at East Coach Station, and get off at Wuyi Rd. After that, take a taxi to your hotel, which takes about 5 minutes and CNY10 or so.

Hi, Dianchi and Yuantong Temple is in Kunming city, but Stone forest is located in somewhere about 120 kilometers (75 miles) from Kunming. You should visit Stone Forest first and visit Dianchi or Yuantong Temple after you get back. You can go to Kunming East Coach Station to take bus to Stone Forest. Bus fare is around CNY 25.
