How to get to Dragon’s Den Hostel
After you get off at the parking area of Dazhai, enter through the ticket gate, it needs a 40-mins walking to our hostel, but actually it is also walking in the rice terrace because our hostel is located at the top of the village. Follow the sign to Tian Tou Zhai ??? OR Music from Paradise ????,they are the same direction. we are the second YHA sign. If you carry a big bag probably you can pay rmb30 to the local women at the parking area, they will carry it for you also guide you to our hostel.
See you soon

We are located in the very scenic Tiantouzhai Village, a 40 minute hike from the base of Dazhai Village. Pay close attention to the signs leading up to Tiantouzhai Village. You may be required to ask local villagers on how to get to Tiantouzhai as there are very few signage. We are also enroute to Scenic Site #2 (Music From Paradise) so keep an eye for that sign as well. You will eventually pass the main public restroom in Tiantouzhai. We are just up ahead with our HI Hostel sign hanging over the path. All signs will be in both English and Chinese.
