Peter, there are two ways. You can fly from Chengdu to there. It takes 40 to 60 minutes. After you landing at the airport, you need to take shuttle bus or rent a taxi to reach the valley. Another option is to take long distance bus from Xinanmen (New South Gate) Bus Station or Chadianzi Bus Station. The ticket prices vary from CNY 145 to 170. It takes around 9 hours.
