The gate has wooden hinged double doors, but it was broken half. Ground covered with mud and footprints, means there was previous visitor. I saw a motorcycle trace on the road to here.

May i come in? It has a unique style that is segmental arch and plane wall. Arch and floor are concrete, wall is by block. Width and height are slightly larger than 2m. I can see sunlight of the another entrance, so fatal obstruction is nothing.

It looks wall is not concrete, but it’s made with slag.

In the past, sign set on near ceiling, and now it falls on the ground. But somebody set it upright.

The tunnel has been sunk thereafter last 4shops, because the tunnel is a downward slope.

Many salamanders live in the water cause water quality is good. How do you came here?
