Finally he decided to build strong pass on the tortoise mountain. Soon, he invited the skillful workers and prepared everything. However, to be surprised is that on the second day, he came to check and found the wood materials have been lost. On one hand, he ordered the soldiers to find everywhere, on the other hand, he called the soldier and asked the condition last night. The soldier on duty last night said he is always protecting everything here without closing eyes. But I the middle night, the strong wind suddenly appeared. After getting quiet, he found the wood materials and lines lost yet. At this time, the soldier who found in other places said that the lost materials were found in the Jiayu Mountains.

After getting calm down, they observed the condition carefully: white snow covered on the Qilian Mountain in the south, sets of Mazong Mountains in the north, spacious sand area in the west and green land in the east. Under the foot, the earth is flat with vast area. If they build the pass here, near the mountain and water it will be perfect.
