On the way down we met a lot of sheep, but no shepherd. We hesitated which way to go, and first we took the wrong path. Do not go down to the shepherd’s hut.

This is the right place to go down. It’s a bit steep.

The entrance to Xianfenggu, it used to be open to the public, but now it’s closed and you are only allowed to go out, not in. They have no plans to open again.
