When will you visit there? If you are not traveling during high season, I'm afraid that you could not find proper taxi from Lianhuatai to Xiahe in such late time.

Hi, you may take a bus at the West Bus Station to Liujiaxia first, which takes around 2 hours. Please get off at the station of Dam and then take a speedboat at Liujiaxia Reservoir to get to the destination, Binglinsi. The boat journey takes about one and a half hour. The entrance fee of Binglinsi is about CNY50 and the fare of Binglinsi Buddha Caves is about CNY300.
