Getting there & around

Lánzhōu has flights around the country; other airports such as Dūnhuáng and Jiāyùguān only have a handful of flights to major cities, with fewer flights in the winter.

Train is the best way to connect the province’s Silk Road sights and continue along the popular rail routes to Xīnjiāng or Xī’ān.

A major highway construction programme will soon shave off bus times to southern sights around Xiàhé and Lángmùsì. A new train station at Dūnhuáng and upgraded airport at Jiāyùguān will further aid access.
