There is not a central ticketing office for the national park, so visiting different parts requires venturing around Rilong and surrounds to procure tickets.  There is no official taxi service in Rilong, but vans frequently trawl the streets looking for customers, and can easily be flagged down.  Rilong itself is a small town, with most facilities within ten minutes' walk.

The main tourist centre is in Changping Village, less than 1km to the east of Rilong.  From here you can purchase tickets to the Changping Valley.  After purchasing your ticket, you wait at the tourist centre for the next bus to transport you the 5km or so to the valley entrance.  Once in the valley, visitors can enter on foot or by horseback.

The entrance to Haizi Valley is within walking distance of Rilong (approximately 500m), and can also be accessed by foot or horseback.  The ticket office is in a building opposite the entrance. (This is the least touristic valley - very recommended for people who like to hike - views are far better than in Changping Valley. Backpacker tip: Check Maps.me for the ‚local path‘ to the treck... you won‘t pass the ticket office).

Shuangquiao Valley entrance is 7km from Rilong, and requires public transport to get there.  Drivers will usually do this for 50Y, which includes the return trip to Rilong from the valley gate at a negotiated time or upon calling the driver to ask for  pick-up.  Once at the gate, visitors must either walk in to the valley or take a sightseeing bus.  Given that the valley is approximately 40km long, with the most spectacular scenery at the far end, it is practical to take a bus to the end, then walk back toward the gate and catch one of the buses back to the gate at the end of the day.  There is 32km of boardwalk leading to the valley's end, making the walk relatively easy.
