We decide to stay another night at 禾木 since it's a nice valley with nearby places to visit. We wake up around 9AM, but it's still raining.

We went to the kitchen to have breakfast where it's warm. There serve the same bread from yesterday (and she will make more whenever the bread on the table run low). The bread is cold, but at least the milk is warm. It's almost 12PM and it's still raining.

We stay in the room until 3PM and saw it's still drizzling outside the window, and we conclude the rain isn't going to stop.

We pack up for an adventure in the rain. Lunch is ready and we have rice with vegetables and meat.

A lot of villager gather near the river, next to the bridge. Guards cordoned the river bank and bridge due to the rising water level (it seems the bridge risk being washed away). Mist is coming out from the river, and the supermarket lady told us this is the once in a year river gush. We can't cross the bridge to the observation deck or nearby villages 美丽峰.

We decide to walk around the village as the rain continue drizzling. We can't venture off road into the woods as it is really muddy.

Besides the sauna, this village have a small hut which manage to fit a snooker table within it (the young man hangout in here).

We walk to the second bridge of the village and found the walkway to the observation deck is flooded as well. We heard a loud noise and someone said the second bridge is broken.

We walk pass the first bridge and saw a huge tree trunk is trapped at the bridge where it keep rolling. This is probably the tree which broke the second bridge. The villagers use some rope to pull the tree trunk away from the bridge, which they succeed eventually.

Tonight's dinner is meat bun, a very strange choice. We are not sure how to leave the village, as continue our hiking trail through horse riding to 小黑湖 is no longer possible. Perhaps we need to hire a car to Kanas by the main road.
