Strolling Through a Picture Scroll

Proceed right, down the hill in the direction of the distant mountains (that is, west). After a little way you will see a pavillion that now serves as a snack shop in summer. Close by, you will see an entrance (a 'moon gate' in the wall) - enter and pass around the first building and then downwards. This area is known as 'Strolling through a Picture Scroll' because it is like walking through a typical chinese landscape painting.


From the bottom of the hill, you will have a new view of the Grand Pavillion and 17 Arch Bridge that you can visit later.
