  1. Hi,
    I want to go from Huanguoshu to Kunming, is there train or bus service from the town in Guanling? I saw it once on the train website but now I cannot find the schedule. Can anyone help me? Thank you.

  2. Hi Pauline Ng,

    Never been to Guanling ( 关岭). But basically there should be a bus service going from Guanling to Huangguoshu.
