The bus to TLG leaves Lijiang around 8:30am, although some guesthouses can arrange transport earlier. For those who choose to take a longer trip, staying overnight at the Naxi Guesthouse and then setting off early in the morning, there is a bus that leaves around 3pm from Tina’s Guesthouse back to Lijiang.
Tickets to enter the park cost 65 yuan (US$9.5) – half price for students. Lijiang can be reached by air – the airport is to the south of the city – or train from Kunming, which takes around 8-9 hours. There are frequent bus connections from Dali, Shangri-la and Kunming.
