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 Huaping 坪.
The buses leave Enshi 7:00 and 9:30, and return from Huaping to Enshi 12:00 and 14:00.
The trip takes a little more than 2 hours.

Get off the bus at the end station, if you ask the driver he drops you off in front of “Xiaoxihu West Lake International Resort” 小西湖国际度假中心, the closest place to the scenic area. We stayed one night at the hotel, see: English or Chinese.

We didn’t return to Enshi the next morning, instead we continued to Shimenhe 石门河 scenic area, also called Enshi Dixingu Geocentric Valley 恩施地心谷, see separate post here.
A public minibus picked us up outside our hotel and dropped us off in Hongyansi 红岩寺(互通), from where one of the Gaoping 高坪- buses took us to Shimenhe.

The main scenic area Huangheqiao (Crane Bridge) 黄鹤桥 is 5km away, one hour on foot through the countryside on an asphalt road with very few cars. It’s also possible to ask the hotel to find a taxi (50 yuan for a 10 minutes ride).
We stayed 3-4 hours in Huangheqiao.
