It seems 半路客栈's lady boss called her relative in 禾木 Hemu to pick us up halfway so that there is a high chances we would stay at their place. We are surprised and afraid they might pick up the wrong person, but it's all well. We get a free horse ride for the last 1.5KM and most accommodation and food around this area is pretty much the same anyway, as long as the price is within the standard range.

We enjoy the horse riding, which is pretty comfortable. 禾木 is quite a large village with a few hundred houses in the valley, which is beautiful.
