How to get there: Bus from Enshi City Guabangyan Bus Station 恩施挂榜岩车站 (also called Qiaoxi, Western Bridge, Station 桥西车站), to Taiyanghe 太阳河. The bus stops just outside the entrance to the stone forest.
We spent 3 hours in the scenic area.

We didn’t return from Suobuya to Enshi, instead we caught a bus to Tiankeng difeng 天坑地缝 (Xiaozhai Tiankeng 小寨天坑) in Xinglong Village 兴隆镇 (belongs to Fengjie County 奉节县 in Chongqing 重庆), see this post: Heaven Pit Earth Crack

All bus lines end in Taiyanghe 太阳河, not far from Suobuya. From there small “village buses” cover the countryside, see photo below. We took a minibus to Shiruguan Tunnel 石乳关隧道, a 2.5km long tunnel connecting Hubei Province with Chongqing. A three-wheeled cab picked us up and took us to our hotel in Xinglong (the minibus driver arranged it).
