Mati Si

Mati Si is a Buddhist temple complex carved into the rock face. Translated as Horse's Hoof Temple, the Mati Si temple site is rather beautiful, and many people spend the day hiking around the protected park that houses the temple. Others, however, plan half a day at Mati Si after seeing the Rainbow Mountains in the morning before heading back to their lodgings in Zhangye.
