Kunming – Bingzhongluo Transportation: By Plane & Bus

Bingzhongluo, which is called ‘A Heaven of Peace and Happiness’, is the most beautiful place in Nujiang Grand Canyon. It is seen as the other “Shangri-La” in Yunnan province. The transportation in Bingzhongluo is not that convenient. There is no direct transportation from Kunming to Bingzhongluo, and tourists need to transfer at Liuku from Kunming/Dali/Baoshan. Every morning, there are 1 or 2 buses running to Bingzhongluo directly which will take about 8 hours due to the bad road condition.
