You can take a bullet train to Shiyan first from Wuchang Railway Station or Hankou Railway Station which will spend around 4 hours on the way. Upon arrival at Shiyan Railway Station, walk to Youzheng Square where you can take Bus No. 202 to get to Wudangshan Scenic Spot.

Alternatively, you can take a normal train for around 6-7 hours from Wuchang Railway Station to Wudangshan Raiway Station. Upon arrival, find the bus station nearby and take Bus No. 203 which will take you to Wudangshan Scenic Spot.

There is no direct bus from Wudangshan to Muyu, you will need to go to Shiyan first and change bus to Fangxian, then head to Muyu by another bus. Or you may charter a car from Wudangshan to Muyu directly.

Answered by Jessie | Jul. 08, 2015 22:50

Yes. There are three trains from Xi'an to Wudangshan and the journey takes around 6-8 hours. I've heard that the direct buses are also available at Xi'an Long-Distance Bus Terminal to Wudangshan. One departs at 08:00 and the other departs at 15:30. The bus ride only takes about 4 hours. As for the guide, you can hire an English-speaking guide to show you around the mountain when you purchase the entrance tickets. I am not sure whether there are muslim restaurants available or not there. Maybe you can consult the staff upon arrival.
