It is over 530 km between the two places. There are buses from kashgar every 1.5 hours from 10am. The ticket fare is about 180RMB. It will take 7-8 hours on road. There are cars waiting there. They will wait for 4 people in one car and drives you to Hetian. It maybe faster and you can ask the drive to stop at anytime on the way for you to take photo, or s short view of the places passed by. Negoriate the price with the driver, it should be the price I told above.
