Hi! we would like to take a long-distance bus to Guazhou. How much will it cost us and how is it worked if we have bicycles with us?


Do you mean you want to take a bus from Kumul to Guazhou, Gansu province? There is no direct bus, but you could have a transfer in Jiayuguan.

Usually, it is no possible to take your bike onto the bus. So you may need to find a delivery company to deliver the bike to Guazhou.
