Need to book plank walk tickets of Huashan Mountain in advance?
I've heard that you need to buy tickets for the plank walk two days before you plan to do it. Is this true? If yes, then how can you book tickets?

You can take a free shuttle bus according to your high-speed train ticket from the Terracotta Worries to the north station. Or you need to go back to the main railway station by Tourist Bus Line 5 first and then take the metro line 4 to Xing zheng zhong xin and transfer to Metro Line 2 to the North Station.

Answered by Nelly from USA | Jun. 23, 2019 23:11

I'm afraid you cannot cover all the attractions in one day. You need to spend at least 2 days.

There are several buses departing from Zhengzhou Central Bus Station to Shaolin Temple and they depart at 7:00, 8:00, 8:50, 9:40. 10:10, 11:00. It takes about 1.5 hours and costs CNY28 per person.

Take Bus Line 8 from Shaolin Temple to Songshan Mountain and it takes about 1 hour.

After that. Take bus from Shaolin Temple to Luoyang and it costs around CNY 20. Then take Bus Line 62/K62 to the Longmen Grottoes, which takes CNY1.

From Luoyang to Zhengzhou, you can take bus from Luoyang Bus Station and the bus departs from 7:00 to 19:00 hourly. It takes about 2.5h and costs CNY35.

There is no metro from the airport to Xi’an downtown, but you can take the airport shuttle bus to the Bell Tower Hotel in the city center. It runs from 7 am to 9:40 pm with around 80 minutes riding for each shift and departs every 20 minutes.
