After the Shennong river excursion, we were brought to this place called Shennong Hall.
It appeared to be built to cater to the increasing number of tourists visiting this area. We had to climb some very steep steps to reach the hall where a 20 minute cultural performance was scheduled. The items performed included a dangerous juggling act with weapons, a magic act, Song items and a special " Bashan native" dance. We had time to view their shopping display hall which had exotic medicinal items from the surrounding mountains, both plant and animal.
There were lots of ginseng on display too. Handicrafts and souvenirs were also available.
An interesting sign I saw attached to the railing there.
