You can buy the bus ticket at Luoyang Jinyuan Bus Station. However, as there is only one bus available daily, I would suggest you buy the tickets in advance if possible. The return bus back to Luoyang leaves from No.2 parking lot of Baijiayan, Yuntaishan at 15:00 in the summer and 14:30 in the winter. For accommodation, I would like to recommend the Yuntai Villa which is a hotel with better service and facilities.

There is direct shuttle bus from Luoyang to Yuntaishan. The bus departs from Luoyang Jinyuan Bus Station at 09:20 and costs CNY51.5 per person. The ride takes around 2.5 hours. If you can not catch this bus, you may also take shuttle bus from Luoyang Bus Station to Jiaozuo first (around 3 hours), and then transfer to a regular bus bound for the mountain.

As for the route back to Xian, you can either choose to take direct bus or trains. The bus leaves from Jiaozuo Long-distance Bus Station at 07:30 and the journey takes around 9.5 hours. If you take train, you may go to Xiuwu West Railway Station or Jiaozuo Railway Station for train to Zhengzhou first, then change to the train to Xian.

Answered by Zoe from USA | Apr. 28, 2018 00:44

Will you land at 12:25am? If yes, you can take shuttle bus Xishaomen Line and get off at Xishaomen Airport Business Hotel first. The operating hours of this bus line are from 06:00 to the last flight arrival. It costs CNY 25 per person. Thus don't worry. After arriving, you can take a taxi for your convenience. The cab fare is around CNY 15.

If you wanna take a taxi from the airport to hotel directly, the cab fare is around CNY 120.

To be honest, I don’t think it’s doable. Since the Terracotta Army Museum is fare from Xian downtown area and it takes 3-4h for a round trip between the museum and Xian. So there may be no time left for you take catch a bullet train to Luoyang and enjoy the grottoes.
