With the coming of autumn, the weather cools down and the normal temperature is between 7 ° C (44.6 ° F) and 20 ° C (68 ° F). The soil freezes during the last ten days of the month and the top of some high mountains are covered with snow.
Most of the time, clothing suitable for autumn and an overcoat are sufficient. During the evening or when you climb the mountain, wear another sweater. Down clothing and thick trousers are also indispensable for nights.
October in Jiuzhaigou is famous for the beautiful red maple leaves all over the mountains. The golden-week holiday, the National Day Holiday, is this month, so the area gets crowded. Book your hotel room and travel tickets ahead of time. See our Jiuzhaigou Tours.

We are planning to visit juizhaigou on 1st October. If we take a bus from chengdu, will it be possible to return at night back to chengdu? Is it possible to rent a van for 8 people and what would be the cost?
It will be a rush according to your itinerary. You won't have enough time for traveling. I suggest you stay a night in Jiuzhaigou at least.
You could take a bus to Jiuzhaigou, it costs about CNY150/US$24 per person and it takes about 7 hours. If you take a flight, it takes about 1 hour and there are many flights every day.
It is too expensive to rent a van, it costs about CNY5000/US$800 at least. Lussie Lu Replied on 2012-09-17

Dear John Lee,
As the weather varies frequently, so the flight will be delay for the bad weather. In general, it won't canceled. There are many flights every day, but during the high season, the tikcets will be sold out soon. If you need to take a flight, please book it as soon as possible.
