Arrive in China at an international airport.
Continue to Guiyang, capital of Guizhou province, either by plane or train. Guiyang is a city of two million people with a national airport, a train station and a bust station.
From Guiyang, you can take either a bus (the bus station is near the train station) or take a taxi directly to Getu (count on about 3 hours and a cost of around 1000 rmb). By bus, there is either a direct Guiyang - Ziyun (2 hours), or two buses (Guiyang – Anshun and Anshun – Ziyun, about 4 hrs). This takes five hours. From Ziyun, take the minibus that goes to Getu: about 45 minutes.
Getu is a small village at the end of a road where you'll find a national park with a symbolic arch through which the sun's rays pass. Once you get to Ziyun you will find people who know of Getu.
All the crags in Getu are within walking distance from the main town and are generally visible from the main road. Crags that are in The Great Arch National Park will require the purchase of a visitor pass before entry into the park will be granted. Tread lightly through the local farms and villages when approaching the crags.
