How to get here
We recommend flying into Chengdu Shuangliu Internation Airport if you are planning to arrive right before your trek. We also recommend staying somewhere near XinNanMen Bus station, near the city center in Chengdu for at least the night after you arrive. This way, you will be near the city metro service as well as close to where buses to Kangding will leave from.
